When the Competent Authority accepts you for practical training/project work, you will be informed by email by HRDD alongwith an official acceptance letter with instructions for submission of a set of further documents related to I-Card processing. Students whose applications are rejected at HRDD or those who are not accepted for practical training/project work in BARC for any reason can see the information at http://www.barc.gov.in/student/student_sp.html, as and when it is regularly updated.

Pl. note that the period of training/project work is excluding the processing time of 1 week taken for processing of filled-in documents at HRDD, investigation & I-Card before the student can start training/project work. This means that students who are accepted for 1 month of training cannot report to BARC on the accepted date or just 2 - 3 days before the starting date of training as the processing time reqd. for I-Card will reduce the training period. Hence, if accepted for training/project work in BARC, students will be required to submit the original documents 1 week to 10 days before the actual starting date of practical training or project work. Training for less than the accepted period is strictly not allowed.

"Any query regarding practical training/project work is to be sent to hrddptpw@barc.gov.in only."
