The point is not covered in the above statement. we have issued one transfer-cum-study certificate after completion of the program to the student. But she approached passport officials for passport. They are not accepting above certificate and they are asking bonafide certificate. How many times, an organisation can issue bonafide certificate or is it right to issue bonafide certificate after completion of the program. Please suggest.
