Kerala Public Service Commission [KPSC] introduced the new facility ‘One Time Registration’ since January 2012. Now you don’t have to apply every time whenever there is a new notification. One time registration system allows an applicant to register their details online and the same can be used for all future job applications. Kerala PSC enabled this single window system as part of implementing the E-Governance in Kerala PSC and it makes much easier for candidates to apply for any post according to their qualifications. Candidates who wish to apply for any post should register their profile using the one time registration system once before applying. After registration you will get a user id and password. Using the user id and password you can login to your profile to apply for a post, download the hall ticket and also view the examination result. On successful submission of the application for any post, you can see the status in your profile as ‘Applied’. You can also update the profile anytime to add any additional qualification you acquire in future. The one time registration system Thulasi 1.0 has been designed and developed by the Kerala PSC using the open source software.
