I am sorry to say this but yes 99% chances are there that your application will get disqualified for the reason that it would be considered incomplete without the signatures.

For such national level exams there are no place/excuse for any sort of errors to be made from the candidates side. You might have to again apply new year or whenever the next vacancy is declared. All the best!
