Exemption from Completion of Orientation Course (OC) and Information Technology Training (ITT) before admission in Practical Training on or Before 31st July, 2020 for Direct Entry Scheme students
Due to suspension of IT and Soft Skill classes all across the country because of the prevailing COVID situation, a large number of Direct Entry students are facing problems w.r.t their eligibility for joining of Articleship due to non-completion of Orientation Course & Information Technology Course. The Competent Authority has therefore decided to relax the requirement as a one-time measure which is as under:
- The students who are registered through the Direct Entry route and are eligible to register in the articleship training on or before 31st July, 2020 are allowed to register in the articleship training and complete Orientation Course and IT Training on or before 31st December, 2020 instead of 31st July, 2020.
