Reserved category candidates registering for CAT 2021 must ensure that they submit the CAT 2021 Undertaking along with their application form. Check all of the details given below.

CAT Undertaking for Category Certificates

The Common Admissions Test (CAT) registrations are expected to commence in the month of August 2021. The candidates who are looking forward filling up the CAT application form are required to submit a number of documents required for CAT application. These include the category certificates for candidates belonging to the reserved categories such as SC, ST, NC-OBC, SC, ST and PwD.

However, during the times of COVID-19, it is just not possible for candidates to gather all of the required documents or certificate from the concerned authorities. Hence, CAT has provided an alternative way for the candidates to c complete the CAT registration process without the need to submit all of the updated documents in the application.

In this Undertaking, candidates accept that they are not able to submit the certificates issued by a complement authority and the same will be submitted at the time of the Personal Interview. The format of this Undertaking has been made available by CAT and can be downloaded from the link given below.
