Membership Process

Deposit Membership Process

The user has to submit a physical copy of the application form and supporting documents to the library. The user must self-attest the photocopy of the documents. The library will send the details to the account section for raising the invoice, and the invoice will be shared with the user through email for making an online payment.

The library will confirm the transaction with the account section and collect the original receipt for processing the membership cards.
