An application password will then be automatically sent to the candidates’ e-mail address; the e-mail address and the password must be entered in order to fill out the Online Application Form.

The Application Form also requires the names and e-mail addresses of two referees. When the form is submitted, the candidate will receive an e-mail containing his/her Online ID, an account password, and confirmation that s/he has applied for INAT-2016.

All outstation candidates who are invited to take the test will be paid travel support as per the prevailing rules.
