  1. Hello
    from the past 3-4 days I am trying to apply for this internship scheme, but every time when reach to submit, it comes up with “this site can’t be reached”. please let me know why is it happening so?

    • Dear Bhoomika,

      If possible please try using another network while applying. For example if you are using Jio Internet to access the website, try another alternative connection like Airtel Internet etc to visit the website. I hope this works.

      All the best!
