On extra-ordinary circumstances, with genuine reasons, students are being transferred from one Institution to another Institution during the beginning of academic years i.e. in III / V Semester of study. But transfers are being claimed by the students as a matter of right, without any valid reasons even in the middle of semesters. In this connection, the following guide lines are being given for the benefit of Principals and students :

(i) Institution transfers cannot be claimed as a matter of right. The Chairman, Board of Examinations has every right to approve or reject the application of a candidate seeking transfer.

(ii) The transfers will be given on genuine grounds only. The factors which had existed during the admission itself (distance, climate, conveyance facilities, fees, food, expense etc.) cannot be cited as the reasons for seeking institution transfer. The genuineness for transfer is to be substantiated with proper evidences such as transfer orders of parents, medical certificates from approved medical practitioners etc.

(iii) Students from Self-Financing Institutions cannot be transferred to Government / Government - Aided Institutions and Vice-versa. However, the students of self supporting courses of Aided Polytechnic Colleges may be transferred to other self financing institutions.

(iv) The sanctioned intake in any branch shall not exceed in the event of any such transfer. The students should verify themselves the vacancy position in the institute for which they seek transfer, before submitting their application.
