1. In case you are a Intermediate(IPC) / Intermediate / Final Old / Final New / Foundation candidate, it is mandatory that you submit your application for inspection / supply of certified copies of answer books, online only, at and also pay the requisite fee on-line through the payment gateway. Physical application by such candidates will not be entertained. There is no provision for submission of application for certified copies of evaluated answer books with late fee.  In case you are Common Proficiency Test (CPT) / Post Qualification Courses (PQC) examinee, you can submit a physical application for inspection/ supply of certified copies of answer books, in the normal course, along with the Demand Draft for applicable fees. Facility of online submission of applications for CPT is not yet available. There is no need to send the printout of the on-line application by Speed Post. You are required to upload a handwritten application duly signed by you, seeking certified copies of answer books, for the purpose of matching your handwriting with that on the answer books. Such handwritten application should be in running handwriting and not in capital letters. In case you are a Hindi medium candidate, your handwritten application uploaded on the portal should be in Hindi. Please note that if the uploaded scanned image is not your handwritten application, but of some other document, your application will not be processed by the office. Such an application, even if it is a "SUCCESSFUL TRANSACTION", will not be treated as a valid application and will not be processed. It may be noted that wherever the Question Paper is on MCQ pattern & answers are written by the candidates on OMR answer sheets, only copies of OMR answer sheet will be provided upon receipt of an application in this regard, under this scheme. Neither MCQ paper booklet nor the answer keys thereon will be provided, in respect of such papers. The certified copy of OMR answer sheets will not bear the Mark's awarded since the same are awarded in the System.

Verification under Regulation 39(4) covers the following aspects:  Whether any question or part thereof has remained unvalued  Whether there is any totalling error in any question or total marks on the cover page  Whether there is any discrepancy between the stepwise marks, total marks for each question indicated on the cover page However, it may be noted that re-evaluation of answers is not permissible under Regulation 39(4).
