Hi, Nishmitha.

In case of the male candidate, left hand thumb impression is required. Right thumb impression is required in case of the female candidate. In case the candidate uploads the wrong thumb, then he/she has to apply the same thumb on the attendance sheet during examination as provided in the online application.
