  • Thanks so much for the information but is there no way I can get the specific day for 2011 & 2012, like you said they wouldn’t attend to us unless we go on the specific days

    So how does one know our specific day because going to and fro to realize that day is not for one is heartbreaking

    • What you have to do is to go to the office and book your day… You might be lucky to be attended to or maybe giving a date to come back.
