After GATE Exam

Migration certificate, Transfer certificate and Character certificate for M.Tech Admissions

There were lots of questions about these certificates as a requirement for M.Tech admission application forms. Few of the readers, friends also that some institutes are asking for gap certificate too. In my view this is all useless until it comes to admission. Anyone should be able to apply with minimum documents at first and then when final admission is done everything required can be asked to submit. As of now we need to fill the application form with the current requirements and here are my views on it.

If you are a passing out students, much of the issues are resolved because you get all these certificates Migration, Transfer, and Character after you passed out. To be safe side, attach a simple letter saying that you are passing out student and will submit the documents once issued by the university at the time of interview or admission.

If you already passed out, then you must have a Transfer certificate with you as you get that when go and collect your final certificates. If you don’t have you better apply for it as soon as possible, one the same time you can also apply for character certificate too.

Migration certificate is usually issue by the university, these days most of the universities are issuing it by mails. Check with your university, if they have that service, you can just write a mail attach a DD and send it. Keep the postal and photo copy of DD safe until you get migration certificate.

While applying for M.Tech if you don’t have these certificates write a mail to admission committee saying the you applied for these certificates and will produce them at the time admission.

As it is just an application form for admission they will not be very hard on it if you write a letter, assuring you will submit these documents once you are admitted and already in a process of acquiring them.

Hope this helps you all, pass to other who may need it. Thanks for dropping by.

      If you already submitted it means you have taken admission into the university. You can only get them back from university not from school.

  31. sreyaa

    I have completed my Diploma engineering from JSS polytechnic and have got even my DIPLOMA CERTIFICATE after successful completion of the course. But then they had not even got my signature for which i received my certificate and more over when i enquired about Transfer certificate – they denied it saying that it would not be issued. Now after a gap of 25 years again i started my education through Distance education mode and completed successfully Degree and masters too in different state. Since i had continued my education out of interest and through distance education, there was no need for my Transfer certificate, as no university i studied required it. Now after a gap of 30 years of my “regular college” mode of study- i would like to pursue my studies in REGULAR MODE of studies and it required my 30 years old ORIGINAL TRANSFER CERTIFICATE – to be submitted in new university of new state for admission to pursue my Higher education. This time i had applied for my “Transfer Certificate” from my previous polytechnic and now they say that it would be sent to new university only through POST after they receive a request letter for TC from my current university. But now in my current university, they said they can not issue request letter because i have not been admitted yet and to get admitted i need TC. Now i am having wasted my 8 months of time without admission is at the cross roads of my ambition and education. What stops my previous POLYTECHNIC to issue or hand over my own Transfer Certificate to me? what steps should i take now to get it in my hand? Please reply soon and help me in this regard. Thanks in advance. Hope the available solution would help many others like me.

    Am I right? What do u think ?
    Please reply…

  88. abhi


    i have passed out and i have the passing certificate and final marksheet……………………… i need anything more…………

    by the way i got 396 rank in chemical engineering……i am eager to know what they ask in interview? especially the IIT’s & NIT’s.

    1. Zahid

      Abhi: You need these certificate if not at application time, you will definitely need them at admission and registration.

      Regarding interview, they ask you what is your area of interest or subject and ask you from that. Remember on thing, they will ask you something which usually students skip because its complex to understand. They start with easy and move to difficult.

    2. Rahul

      If I have atkt in 6 subject and now I want to leave the college so can I get my leaving certificate return from college.
