    Hello,I made payment of application fee today and submitted the form. But as you have shown in your article that after submission a message “your application is under scrutiny” will appear. But in my case it didn’t happen and then their was a print option of summary sheet which I downloaded in pdf format. It showed complete details and also payment details which was successful.
    Also during initial process I didn’t receive user id and password, actually I just got mail and message from kvpy exam authority which stated that I have been registered successfully and showed my email id and DOB.
    Was their any error during this process. Do I have to refill the form once again.
