I had started my articleship on 19th October, 2021 at a firm and terminated the same on 6th December, 2021 (after 1 month and 17 days). I had joined another firm on 19th April, 2022 ( after a break of 4 months and 13 days). My firm is treating me as second year trainee from 19th October, 2022. Please guide me when will I be eligible for Industrial training and how the gap of 4 months and 13 days will be treated for this purpose?
If we consider it as normal study leave, i will be eligible from 19th April, 2023. However, if it is treated as a gap and is avoided for the 18 months eligibility count, I will be eligible from 1st September, 2023.
