tango,

where do you live ?
It was sent by ordinary post, so give it a couple of days more.
Hope you had sent the application properly with all the required attestations ...

im from lucknow u.p.. and after all the dgca hassles for 3 years .. ive become seasoned with attestation and stuff so pretty much no problemo on that front i have my fingers crossed if nothing comes up well practically i cant do anything but move on what else?.. since the application could not have been couriered i fear that the 5 rs stamp application took more time than needed and bhartiya daak seva proved useless

So you mean to say that the box cant hold 800 applications and rest of the applications were ashtray.

The applications are removed periodically from the box they dont wait for the last date for the post box to over flow.

Apply some logic dont just shoot s###.

Happy Landings

well about the call letters ,everyone has been called upon who fits in the criteria of INDIAN CPL and FRTOL.

Letters were dispatched on Tue Wed Thurs respectively by 5 Rs stamp pasted on the LIFAFA.And people will get the call letters depending on the date of dispatch.However date on the application would be 18th or 17 or 19th depending upon when the letters were signed by the cncerned authority.

Cheers

For confidential info Pm me

"5. This admit card is issued provisionally to the candidate subject to his satisfying the eligibility conditions. "

Got to know that a lot of people had applied without having Indian Licence or with their foreign CPL, so obviously those would have been rejected.

Does anyone have any idea as to what to expect at the exam and how should one go about preparing for it.
Maybe someone knows someone who has given the exam earlier.
Best of luck to you all!

well i got my license in may so.. pure bad luck if i don't get the admit card... and kartik.subramaniam spoke about air force requiring pilots for transport category ii checked it up as i can recall they want guys with b.e or btech and this there is no relaxation for eyesight ... i have -.75 power in the left one should try baba ramdev's yoga fr that.. missed coast guard cos' of the eyesight.. missed the air force and nd now no admit card for cabin secretariat...
i dont know if this is the place to discuss all this but is there anyone who is giving C.AT. for mba this year??
...im in my 2nd year so will have to wait til next year for that until than hope the winds of change blow
i used to think it would be blasphemous to think about mba or degree after spending on the cpl but that was an year back.. the slump has mellowed all of us down.. the shahrukhans are extinct and as many seniors might observe now the 250 hr wonders now know their place... as someone suggested we have 4 decades of aviation waiting for us if we persevere ..
i know i ranted nd went of the topic.. but just felt like venting.. xcuse the misplaced content of this post

tushar, you are most likely to get your admit card in a day or two, no reason why they should reject you! Give them a call if possible. Airforce and coast guard, why would you want to join that? You'll be stuck there for years, with low pay and not get that many flying hours. Doing a CFI rating is a better option.

Getting an MBA also sounds like a plan..unless/ until you get a civilian flying job. Hopefully something interesting comes up by next year.

guys this job is not related to air force ..
and also i guess u might be asked to sign a bond for atleast 5-7 years for sure..
i think this could be one high profile job dealing with the national interests..
best wishes to u guys who are appearing !
