There is no specific mention made with regard to the validity period of CC. However a combined reading of all the provisions gives an understanding on the restrictions on the number of attempts which in itself would make the CC invalid.
The restrictions on the number of attempts may come into operation on account of
- The maximum number of attempts allowed getting exhausted.
- The registration getting expired.
- The validity period of the EC/CC getting expired
Maximum Number of Attempts:
There is no specific mention regarding the maximum number of attempts
- 5 years from the date of registration for Inter.
- 3 years from the date of registration if the student does not appear in any examination till then.
The candidate has to get his/her registration renewed by a process called Denovo Registration. The candidate after registering denovo would be in the same position as if his/her registration has not been cancelled.
3 Years from the date of issue (covering 6 attempts)
The candidate has to get his/her CC revalidated by a process called Revalidation of CC. The candidate after revalidating his/her CC would be in the same position as if his/her CC is valid.
This is needed where the candidates CC has expired.
Where the candidates registration has expired and he/she gets his/her registration renewed either by the denovo process or the registration afresh process, they would stand in a position as if their registration has not been cancelled, which makes it unncessary for them to renew the CC, unless in the case where it has expired.
An application in the prescribed form (costing Rs.5 per group) should be made
The present fee is Rs. 1000 per group and Rs. 1500 for both groups
In case a student has an exemption in any of the papers of the group for which he is applying for a revalidated CC, credit will be given @ Rs.10 per paper exempt
Papers to be submitted:
The application for revalidation of CC for a group contains a set of four question papers, one in each subject/exam-paper which are to be answered and submitted.
Evaluation and Pass Marks:
The papers will be valued and on the student getting a minimum of 40% marks in all the papers a new revalidated CC will be issued.
Who issues the revalidated CC:
The revalidated CC is issued only by the Head Quarters at Kolkata.
Where to Submit the Application/Papers:
