Kannan,
I did not know of that before.
With regards to the post in the forum, nobody seems to have responded so far. I think using our Facebook page for posts might capture more attention.

Re: Alumni meet update

I had to return from Kerala due to a last minute commitment. The dream 3 weeks holiday back home ended up being a 9 day short visit and moreover I am going to miss the event (terribly) after such a long anticipation ! :(
Bibu and team are doing a great job in organising the event!

Re: TC Medical council registration renewal

So I gather, if we do not re-register in time, the section 4 will be applicable.. That means the medical council will write to the address we registered with originally and if they receive no response, then the name will be erased.
