NOC from government for taking admission in foreign university
Question: I am a govt servant and currently in a process of making applications to numerous foreign universities for a PhD program. I asked my organization for a general NOC applicable to all universities. They denied and asked me to mention the name of the university to which I am applying. As currently I am in a process of making applications and my admission is not yet confirmed. I cannot mention a list of 10-50 universities in my application. Kindly help me write an appeal / application for issuance of a general NOC.
A government servant must obtain a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the government before enrolling in a foreign university. If the service rules provide an opportunity for study leave, then the government is obligated to issue the NOC.
In many cases, government servants are required to obtain an NOC from their respective government department or employer before seeking admission to a foreign university. This is done to ensure that the employee’s absence for the duration of the academic program will not adversely affect the department’s operations.
