Sub: Submission of contract
registration cards and quarterly claims for
reimbursement of stipend – regarding.
I wish to invite your
kind attention over the above subject matter and mention
that an in-ordinate delay made by the establishments in
sending the Contract Registration Cards (CRCs) has been
observed, in general. In this regard, it is requested to
kindly instruct the concerned officers looking after the
engagement of Graduate/Technician/Technician (Voc)
apprentices under The Apprentices (Amendment) Act, 1973
& 1986 in your establishment, to send the CRCs in
respect of the engaged apprentices within 3 weeks of the
engagement. You will appreciate that this will help the
Board to carry out the further processes based on these
documents in a lesser time period. This in turn, will
enable your establishment for intime tendering of the
claims for reimbursement of stipend on quarterly basis.
It will be worth mentioning that this Board is now
processing the claims at a faster rate so as to make
payments towards reimbursement in 15 days from receipt
of a claim.
In view of extending
an opportunity of apprenticeship training to large
number of aspirants, I request you to bestow your
personal attention for regular engagement of the
apprentices as per the quota allotted and to see that
not a single vacancy arises at any point of time.
Doubts, if any, regarding the implementation of the
scheme may be got cleared by making telephonic contacts
with the officers of the Board implementing the scheme
in your area. Also, every relevant information is now
made available on our website. Expecting a favourable
response from your side pertaining to the subject matter
and thanking you in anticipation.
