    • Rajath says:


      I have minus 7 power.
      So I thought of going for physically disabled (PoD).
      The thing is you need a certificate for that and that is only given to you if you have some serious medical condition or if your partially blind by birth or if your power is so high that even though your wearing glasses your still no able to see properly.
      I hope you didn’t apply under (PoD) or else at the time of counselling if the documents is not shown you admission may be terminated or worse strict legal action may be taken against you.
