SSC CHSL Document Verification Experience:-

I am going to share experience of one of the successful candidate who went for SSC CHSL Document Verification in his words.

  1. I was allotted a Batch Number ( I do not remember now ) and a Board Number 10. This was allotted on my admit card. I was also allotted a serial number.
  2. My Document Verification was on 12th July. I am from NR region. So my venue was SSC CGL complex, Lodhi Road, New Delhi.
  3. I reached the venue 2:00 PM. My document verification was to start at 3:00 PM.
  4. I entered the premises at 2:30 PM. The guard and staff checked my Admit Card for DV and original ID card. I had Aadhaar Card with me. This is 100% same as the staff check our admit card on the gate when we go for Tier 1 exam.
  5. Then I searched for my serial number on the notice board and also verified from staff where I had to go then. I went to a hall.
  6. Again in that hall my Admit Card and ID card was checked. Then I went for Biometric Attendance.
  7. The SSC staff who was taking Biometric Attendance put a stamp on my Admit Card – “REGISTERED & VERIFIED”.
  8. Then I was asked to go to another hall to respective Board Number. I went to that hall and I saw 3 more boards were there.
  9. For each board there was 2 members. 1 members was checking certificates and 1 member was working on Computer.
  10. I was given a dossier in which I had to fill some information like- exam name, thumb impression, identification marks, signature, pasted 2 photographs,etc. Very easy nothing to worry.
  11. Then in the same dossier I attached the photocopies of my documents. I am from SC category so I attached my caste certificate also.
  12. After that that member verified all these documents.
  13. Then other member of the board who was working on Computer took dossier and entered some information like date -of issue of 10th certificate, 12th certificate, caste certificate and my department preference.
  14. Now he took my photo from webcam and then printed 2 forms which he had just entered.
  15. His work was over now. The first member again verified dossier with original certificate and printed form and signed on both. He gave 1 copy of that to me.
  16. He also returned all the original certificates and documents. And said the Document Verification Process is over now. And wished me ” BEST WISHES”
  17. I said THANK YOU to both the members and came out of the hall.
  18. I went to canteen and had chai + samosa and bought 1 kg sweets and then returned to Mukherjee Nagar by Metro where I was a guest in my friend’s( Rohit) room.

NOTE- You will enjoy the process.
