    Which sentence is correct?

    1. I want to know as to when will the result be declared?
    2. I want to know, when will the result be declared?

    If both are correct, do they mean the same, or there is some difference in meaning. Also I want to know as to what does 'as to' mean?

    We don't use "as to" in this context.

    If you want to use it, we would say "I am curious as to when the result will be declared".

    To start with "I want to know..." you need "I want to know when the result will be declared". (Note the word order in both instances.)
