How to Fill CDS Application Form?

The UPSC CDS application form can only be completed online at the official website.

Before filling out the application, candidates should read the official UPSC CDS 2022 Notification. The CDS application process consists of four easy steps:

Step 1: Registration

  1. Visit the official UPSC CDS 2022 website at upsconline.nic.in.

  3. Fill in your name, birthday, parents’ names, address, category, phone number, email address, and other essential information.

Step 2: Application Fee Payment

  1. Candidates must pay INR 200 as application fees for CDS 2022.
  2. Fees are waived for female, SC, ST, and physically challenged candidates.
  3. Application fees can be paid online using a debit/credit card or through SBI Netbanking, or in person at any SBI Bank branch.
  4. Candidates must create a bank challan during the registration procedure and submit it together with the fees to any SBI bank branch to pay the fees in cash.
