Dhruv

Sir is it important to have sponsorship for TS Rahman before joining it?? For DNS

Hi Dhruv, yes it is important to have a sponsorship for DNS, and for DNS you company matters more rather than the college. If you don’t have sponsorship then I suggest you to go for Sponsorship then go for T.S. Rahaman. There are many sponsorship forms that are out which you can fill for instance, Fleet Management and then go for T.S. Rahaman.
