Sir / Maam Jipmer Pg counseling requires Transfer certificate & Migration certificate ,how do they differ in content? I passed from a Foreign Medical college, they provided me with a Transfer certificate only.Will it suffice ?

NAVNEET PANDEY 31st Dec, 2019

Hello Randeep

If you have transfer certificate then it will enough for the admission,it means you have completed the course so you don't need to stress out.

Migration certificate is issued after you finish the university exam.
