Key pointsUpload only self-attested, scanned images; mind the transliteration part

One must upload scanned copies of an original document. Scanned images of photocopied documents would not be accepted.

Additionally, the scanned images must be self-attested, otherwise they would be rejected.

Another thing is to make sure that when the system automatically transliterates your filled-in details to your selected regional language (Hindi/Punjabi/Bengali), the information reflected must be correct in both the languages.
