  • Omg, we had a tough time to collect the TC from the school .. when we applied TC (during the month of May) much before the new academic year that too ours was an emergency situation job relocation and my son told us some tales in school he was mentally disturbed due to a death of a student inside the school premises we ware worried about our kids safety and their future but the school refused to issue TC and they demand 1/3 payment to be paid for new academic year and collect the TC (which my son never enrolled for new academic year 2015-16) we highlighted our situation to the school management but the principal wrote to us and said... its our school rules ...(printed in hand student handbook) its says, TC should be applied before January (much before the final exams) if you a apply after this said period you need to pay 1/3 fee as fine,(around RS 75,000) and collect the TC Guys beware of school rules ...
