      Yes, law graduates can apply as well. Also, certificate will be given but only after the selected candidate completes at least six months on the team. We have included this in the post now. Thanks!

    Those who have inadvertently missed the deadline due to Diwali celebrations and Bhai Dooj Pooja. Can they submit their applications now?
    Though we understand that would be unfair to other participants but considering the extended holidays, the deadline can be shifted a day or two.
    Just a suggestion and small appeal.
    Look forward to your response.
    P.S. Any decision taken in this regard, shall be gracefully accepted.
