This query is : Resolved

I stay in dahiser and registered as an articleship in dahiser only. But I have to go to Kingcircle office(another partnership firm of my principle) daily for doing articleship. It was not said to me at the time of registration that i have to go to that office, infact that partnership was made after my registration. I cant do daily travelling due to physical weakness.
1. So can i take transfer?
2. If yes then pls can you give me the guidelines for transfer?
3. Also pls can you specify the rules of transfer.
