ICAI had received various applications from the students registering for articleship, asking the Institue to extend the last date to submit the form and waive off the late fees as students are having trouble arranging judicial stamp papers and submission of the same because of the ongoing pandemic. The Institue has now extended the last date of submission of the registration form to the 31st of October 2020. Read below the official notification from the Institute:

Amid the current Covid-19 situation it is observed that some of the students are still facing difficulties in the filing of Form 102/103 for registration of articleship due to non-availability of Judicial stamp paper for the execution of articleship deed. Form 112 seeking permission to pursue another course is also a matter of concern due to closure of academic institutions. It is causing delay in online submission of application forms inviting levy of Condonation fee under the relevant Regulatory provisions.
Considering difficulties being faced by the students, it has been decided to extend the period of relaxation in continuity from 30th June to 31st October, 2020 and to waive off condonation fee if application forms are filed till 31st of October 2020.
This period includes one-month prescribed time limit given in general.
