In order to investigate the magnetic properties at the vicinity of magnetic to superconducting (SC) phase boundary, we have performed Cu-NQR measurements under hydrostatic pressure (P) on two off-stoichiometric Ce1+xCu2+ySi2. Ce0.99Cu2.02Si2 exhibits the anomalous ground state so-called A-phase, dominated by critical magnetic correlations and affected by a presence of minor SC fraction at ambient P. With increasing P which enhances the Kondo temperature, the fraction of the A-phase is markedly suppressed, but the SC fraction is increased, although Tc stays nearly constant in the range of 1 bar < P < 14.4 kbar. This evidences that the P-induced A- to SC phase change is of first order. In Ce0.975Cu2Si2 which undergoes a static magnetic ordering (SMO) at ambient P below TN ∼ 0.6 K, no superconductivity has been induced up to 19.4 kbar.
