    dear all..above mentioning their area of interest stressing for only how to apply for css. so my brothers and sisters , for your kind information there is a manual available in the market that contains all the requirements for eligibility for css competitive examination.
    Don’t worry you will be better guided also by the books available in the market with unsoved papers. all mendatory requirements are there. you have to just go on the book shop ask for css previous papers….in the beginning of that book every bit of information is prescribed for the better guidance of students…….. i hope you will be getting necessary information required. May Allah bless you with his mammoth of mercy…….. Allah Nigihban
