Every year the matching season starts in September and the results are out in March the next year.

Matching season 2011 (March 2011) starts in September this year 2010.

Matching season 2012 (March 2012) starts in September next year 2011.

Thanks for the reply but could you please tell me what is the exact date, if possible to apply for match?

I mean to say, if i get CS and ECFMG certificate but do my CK, say around in October, is it still possible for me to apply for September?

Yes, you can apply in September before having the CK results. In fact, there's no requirement for applying. You can apply without having any exam results! But for all practical purposes and for descent chances of getting interviews you have to be ECFMG certified by September.
I mean you can apply without finishing all the exams but your chances will be minimal in getting interviews.
