  1. Please clarify:
    1. Annexure III – Whether it is to be executed on plain paper or stamp paper. If on stamp paper, the cost of stamp paper needed.
    2. In Annexure III first para “That my son……has been provisionally selected in………………………………”? What is here to be written. Is it the course which my son is undergoing? Say B Tech Computer Science?
    2. My annual family income is 4.49 lakhs. Should I produce non-creamy layer certificate? I think it is not needed.
    Please clarify urgently.
