Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) I am joining on 18 th of the month. How is the month / quarter / year computed?
The proposed month of joining is counted as a complete month regardless of the date of joining.

2)How is an academic year calculated? What period should I enrol for?
For most UPSC students, the preparation begins in Jun/Jul/Aug & the first milestone is with Prelims in the May/Jun of the following year, for which results are declared by July. This is followed by Mains in September. Keeping in mind this calendar, academic year is calculated as a duration of upto 12 months or the September of the following year, whichever is earlier. To further clarify, students joining for a year in July shall have their admissions upto June of the subsequent year while students joining in Nov shall have their admissions upto next Sep.

3) I have enrolled from July. But I shall be able to join by September due to unavoidable reasons. How would the period be calculated?
The admission period would begin from the date that was informed in the Admission Form. Since JCKM Hostel has reserved the seat, it would not be able to accommodate requests for post-ponement of the admission period.

4) What if the duration of my stay is less than a quarter?
JCKM Hostel doesn’t admit students for less than a quarter. Exceptions may be taken for UPSC students appearing for Mains or Interviews. However, students wanting to add an additional term of a month (after the quarter or year) may do so.

No cash is to be deposited into the Trust bank account. The money towards Deposit / Lodging / Mess / Electricity is to be received by way of RTGS / EFT / Bank transfer etc.

6) Can the lodging / mess charge be paid in parts?
The charge is payable at one go. Students have the option to enrol for shorter duration but a renewal shall be treated as a fresh term & not continuation of the existing term.

7) Can I take admission for 3/6 months & then upgrade to 12 months?
he student may renew afresh for a quarter / 6 month / year at the expiry of their tenure. They cannot upgrade from quarter to a year.

8) I have paid the Deposit & Lodging/Mess Charges but need to cancel my stay due to some reasons. What refund do I get?
The Lodging/Mess Fee is non-refundable. Deposit is refunded after adjustment of any charge payable by the student.

9) I joined in middle of the month. How would the room electricity charge be split?
Room Electricity charge is to be split equally between all room occupants, regardless of the date of joining or the stay duration. However, students may, with mutual understanding, apportion the electricity cost on the basis of number of days stay.
