International students who wish to study in India should obtain a Student Visa before travelling to India.
Once the student has been issued a confirmed admission letter to study at the Institution / College, he/she should immediately apply for Student Visa.
International students taking admission at Rathinam Group of Institutions should make sure that the Student Visa is endorsed to Rathinam Group of Institutions by the visa issuing authority.
A request for change of Institution or institution subsequently made cannot be considered. In this case you would be required to go back to your home country and apply for a new visa.
Also, if you have entered India on basis of documents provided by the Institution then it is your responsibility to ensure that you directly join and report to the Institution. The Visa endorsed on the name of the Institution or obtained on the basis of Institution documents cannot be used for any other purpose like employment , admission to any other University/college/institute/academy etc or for nonregular (distance/online) mode of education.
After reaching the Institution students have to get the visa verified by the Institution and have to deposit a copy of the valid visa
It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that throughout his/her study period student is on valid visa.
In case the initial visa is not endorsed for the complete duration of the programme or student has to extend the stay because he/she is not able to complete the programme in the stipulated time then the student should apply for the extension of the visa before visa expires.
It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that visa should be applied well in advance and time. It generally takes 3-8 weeks to get the Indian Visa thus it is advisable to apply for the visa accordingly and consult the Indian High Commission/Embassy if required.
Students joining the Institution after the prescribed time period may be denied admission.
