My articleship period of 3 years was supposed to get completed on 09/03/2017.
However, due to exam leaves I could not get my for 108 signed on that date. Now, i.e. on 21/06/2017, when I came to my principal for getting it signed, he said I'll need to serve an extension of 138 days.
However, for extension, form 102 and 103had to be franked on or before 09/03/2017. Since, the period of extension starts from the date of franking and I do not have any franked form, is there any way out of this? (Can anyone provide me with a blank franked form 102 and 103 dated around 09/03/201, if so kindly message me.)
Further, my for my Final CA exam form of May '17 I had submitted a certificate of service (signed by my principal on 15/02/2017) stating that my articleship alongwith any excess leaves will get completed on 30/04/2017.
Will my extension create any trouble when the results are declared i.e. results being held for non-completion of articleship on or before the aforesaid period?
Furthermore, the fees for late submission of Form 108 has been revised from 1st April, 2017, what fees will be applicable to me?
