"Any educational institution existing solely for educational purposes and not for purposes of profit and approved by the Chief Commissioner or the Director General enjoys exemption under sub-clause (vi) [section 10(23C)].
For this purpose the educational institution has to make an application in Form No.56D as prescribed in Rule 2CA"
