Sir/Madam, I have registered for articleship on 15-2-2013. At that time leaves allowed for an articles student are 180. By the time I completed my articles that 180 is changed to 156, which I was completely unaware of. I sent form 108 mentioning leaves taken as 170 and end of articleship date as 14-2-2016. In fact, I have worked till 23-5-2016 upon request of my principal after sending the form 108. I thought my articles is completed and I attended CA final exams in May, Nov 2017, May, Nov 2018. While digitising the details for self service portal ICAI realised that I have taken 14 days excess leave. (170-156) On 1-5-2019, I got a mail to register 103 again and to complete the excess leave period of 14 days and it also said that I should be under articleship training as on 1-5-2019. Otherwise they said they will hold the result of my May 2019 attempt. So, I have registered in form 103 again with the same principal with 16 days deed and sent form 108 again. Now, in the Self service portal and in the mail I got a message saying that I still have to serve 14 days excess leave. Can anyone help me with this? I'm confused. Will they hold my result? How do I complete this excess leave. Thanks in advance

you have done your job. Wait. The portal is facing lot of bugs and issues. It will take some time to resolve. In thee meanwhile write a letter to ICAI stating the facts. ( By the way, WHY DID YOU UNDERGO 16 DAYS IN STEAD OF 14?)

My dear friend, there need not be any buffer.... Anyway, now that you have done this....2 days extra....(I can sense why you must have done so.....you probably counted the 2 Sundays and that made it 16th may rather than 14th May 2019) So to say, probably system is NOT understanding '16 days form 108' because it is looking for '14 days form 108'. So write a letter to ICAI stating that '16 days form 108' may please be treated as '14 days form 108'.
