NEW DELHI: The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) launched a new website, which went live on February 17. Responding to candidates' queries concerning One Time Registration (OTR) for various recruitments, the commission has published a new notification. The new notification informed that notices for the various examinations conducted by the commission will henceforth be published on the new website only.

The commission informs that applications for the recruitments will only be accepted on the new website. To apply for the recruitments, applicants will have to create a One Time Registration (OTR) on the new website, as the previous OTR is no longer functioning.

The official notification read, “It is clarified that the OTR generated earlier by the candidates on the old website shall continue to remain valid for accessing various functionalities, if required, on the old website. That OTR, however, will not work for the new website and the candidates will have to generate a fresh one on the new website.”
