Fee Waiver

A waiver of the application fee on grounds of financial distress may be requested by a letter from the Principal or the Head of the Department justifying the request, or by producing an officially recognized EWS certificate, or for full-time employees, a letter from the current employer on their letter head together with salary slip (in a single PDF file).  Students need to upload these documents with their online application form. 

While registration, students may click the fee waiver option in the payment section of the application form and upload the scanned copy of the recommendation letter / employer letter along with salary slip, to their registration profile.

These requests will be considered depending on the justification and the availability of seats in each Centre, but cannot be guaranteed.
