    a letter in my fathers name has gone wrong. “I” was typed instead of “U”. will it be a problem?

    • admin says

      any way you have submitted your application. There is no option of making correction in IB Online. Just keep your finger crossed. Concentrate on your preparations, forget about the mistake as of now. This is the best you can do.

  20. Ram Parsad says

    Sir, I am ex servicemen Junior Commissioned Officer retired on 31 Mar 2012 on completion of 26 years service. My civil education qualification is matriculate. As per Govt of India Ministry of Personnel Public Grievances and Pensions (Department of Personnel and Training) OM No 15012/8/82 Estt (D) dated 12 February 86)am I graduate and issued graduation certificate by the Army for the same. Can I apply for ACIO post in IB.

    • admin says

      Sir, There is no mention of any relaxation in age or reservation for EX-SM in the advertisement issued. The maximum age mentioned is 27 years, and relaxation is applicable as per Government rules. for the Departmental Candidates, the allowed upper age relaxation is 40 years. Given the circumstances I think the age would be a major factor here. This is my personal Opinion sir, I request you to kindly check with IB or Home Ministry.

  21. rimi says

      If you have registered any email while applying, immediately go through your email for any mails. I am afraid IB won’t help you with finding your registration number, it was your responsibility to save it.
