Total Interview Duration : 45 min +

Verdict: Selected


I converted IIM- Shillong

So W/L moves by ONE

But, I had already sent my draft to IMT, and I am not sure if it has reached them or not (though Courier says it has reached, but there is no conformation from IMT side, even I tried to call them and no one pics the call)
I want IMT to return my DD as it is to me- this would reduce there hassel and speed up the process

Now for cancellation, should I send a proper signed letter to them or an email would do or should I send a fax.

I want my cancellation to be done before 15th , so that I do not block the seat for 1st w8list guys.

Puys, what should I do?

After trying 15-20 times, finally am official picked the phone.

This is what I got if u want to cancel ur admission-
1. Send a fax of a letter signed by you stating that you want cancellation and refund. Do mention ur CAT/IMT details, Name under which you want DD/cheque, Address where money has to be sent.
IMT admission office fax no is there at bottom of call letter. (I could not find it on website)
2. Then, send that letter to them through courier/post.
3. The amount deduction is per AICTE guidelines, right now its Rs 1000.

NOTE- Cancellation does not happen by sending them email. the offical said email are not valid they need signed letter by us.

PS: Sorry for interruption, puys u may carry on the healthy discussion.
PPS: Seniors, you are doing gr8 job.
