                          1. If a Learner, due to unavoidable circumstances is unable to commence with the cohort and requests a deferral before the cohort starts, we provide the opportunity for the Learner to defer to another cohort.

The Learner has until the current cohort commencement date to make the payment of the 50% program fee, referred to in paragraph 3 after which the deferral request will expire. Once the deferral window expires and the Learner now asks for a refund, the above-mentioned applicable refund policy will apply.
                          5. Once the deferral request has been accepted and processed, the Learner must pay the remainder of the 50% program fee within 30 days of the deferral request being approved or on the cohort start date of the deferred cohort, whichever is earlier.
                          6. A Learner can request a deferral (pre-programme commencement) only once and must defer their study to either of the scheduled cohorts to start within the next 1 year from the cohort start date of the initial cohort the Learner had enrolled for.
                          7. The fee applicable to the deferred Learner will be the fee applicable to the cohort the Learner will join after deferral of study.

                          Initially your bank will block the entire amount from your available purchase limit and from your next billing cycle, you will be charged the EMI amount. As you start paying your EMI, your credit limit will be released accordingly. For example, if you have made a payment of ₹100000 on 6-months EMI and your credit limit is ₹200,000 then initially your bank will block your credit limit by ₹100000. After payment of your first month EMI of Rs.15000, the blocked amount will come down to ₹85000.

                          11. Why is interest getting charged on No Cost EMI?
                          Your bank will charge you interest. However, this interest charge has been provided to you as an upfront discount at the time of your payment, effectively giving you the benefit of a No cost EMI. The total amount paid during the entire EMI tenure to the bank will be equal to the amount to be paid to upGrad.

                          Eg. Amount payable to upGrad: INR 405000
                          Let's say Amount deducted at the time of transaction: INR 379850 (Principal amount) Bank charges interest of 12-15% per annum on INR 379850
                          [Note: Interest factor is reducing rate and not Flat rate]
                          EMI AMOUNT = INR 33750 x 12 = INR 405000
                          Effectively, you have taken loan on 379,850 instead of 405,000
