The Applicant, In lieu of the agreements with the industry, is engaged in preparing the Monthly attendance record of the apprentices, getting it certified from the company, processing stipends of the apprentices etc.

The Hon'ble Maharashtra Authority of Advance Ruling ("MAAR") noted that the stipend is not directly paid to the trainees by the companies but are routed through the Applicant. That the applicant only acts as an intermediary since the applicant is not allowed to make any deductions from the stipend before providing it to the trainees.
