Some Tips Regarding SSB Interview Call Letters

SSB Interview call letter is an important document, but it is quite possible that you may not receive the letter at all... It may happen at times, and you yourself need to be alert.

You should be getting it around 3-4 weeks before the Interview date. From my own experiences, and those of many aspirants whom I have interacted with, here are some tips:

  • If you are going through the written exams like NDA or CDSE, and you have cleared as shown at the http://upsc.gov.in site, then wait for a reasonable time

    If you feel that it is getting late, or your friends who gave the paper with you have begun receiving call letters, then call UPSC at Delhi. Number given in notification, envelope etc.

    "
    Facilitation counter and website for guidance of candidates: In case of any guidance/information/clarification regarding their applications, candidature etc. candidates can contact UPSC`s Facilitation Counter near `C gate of its campus in person or Over Telephone No.011-23385271/011-23381125/011-23098543 on working days between 10.00 hrs and 17.00 hrs.

    The Commission also has Website at address upsc.gov.in over which the candidates can obtain details of the examination as well as information about registration of their applications. venue of the examination and results etc.
    "

    It takes a number of redials to get the no. though :) Tell them that you have not received your call-letter. They'll tell you that your Centre is xyz (say Bhopal, Allahabad etc). Take it's number from them.

    Then call up your centre and verify the date of your Interview from them and whether or not you receive the letter, be there at the Centre on your date. 
  • For direct entries, I think they do not accept speed-posts, registered mail or even courier- only simple mail is accepted.

    I have little idea in this case how to verify re call letters... 
  • For NCC entries, contacting your NCC office might be of help.

In any case, try to keep in touch with fellow aspirants who may be pursuing similar entry and you can keep in touch re call-letters.

    Hi,

    Congrats on clearing University Entry Scheme. I am sorry but I have little idea regarding this.

    I suggest you ask the Head of your Placement Department, because they organize all these interviews.

    Warm regards

    Kindly contact UPSC at Delhi. Keep your details handy, they'll tell you your SSB centre and its number. Follow up with the SSB centre.

    The SSB call-letter is not that important, reaching the SSB centre on your allotted day and time is most important.

    See first point in the article above for more information.

    Good luck!

    Warm regards

    You're welcome. See if you're confirmed with the date and venue of your SSB, then it'll be okay if you proceed directly to that.

    In general, I would suggest to reach the venue one day before to account for any delays in travel.

    Warm regards and good luck

    Hi

    Kindly pardon me for the delay. Was busy.

    Government issued IDs are always preferred. Dependent card of Armed Forces seems likely to be accepted.

    I would suggest that you contact your SSB Centre and enquire if the IDs you have will work. You must have got the telephone numbers in your SSB call-letter, or see this page for how to contact UPSC etc.

    Please note that SSB will not negotiate on matters of ID, original documents and all so make sure you take along the original IDs.

    With best wishes.

      I am not aware regarding the University Entry Scheme. Kindly confirm from your college/university's placement cell or any other people who helped organise the interview at your campus.
