Hi @Anu,

Have you contacted College Board customer support? They offer support tailored to international students filling out a CSS profile. Their international number is 212-299-0096 and their hours are 9am-10pm ET Monday-Friday. They are accessible by chat and by email, which you can access through this link: https://finaid.collegeboard.org/cssprofile-student/s/?tabset-485c5=3

Let me know if you have any more questions!

Yes done, thank you. What is SIN/SSN no. in case of International students and do we need to fill the IDOC form before the answer of the colleges?

You should try contacting CSS's support service. They'll know what to do. It could be there's a service downtime or your card.
