I. Delegates / Students who wants to cancel before September 1st 2020
- You can TRANSFER your registration to any friend or colleague of yours (same category of registration) and collect your registration fee directly from your colleague. We would help facilitate the transfer and there would be no processing fee whatsoever from our end for this. This transfer offer is valid till Sep 1st 2020 only.
The IFEA Board has now decided to provide a 100% refund of your registration fee. We would proceed with your 100% refund in two phases:
i. We would immediately transfer 82% fee back to your account after you confirm your cancellation through a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ii. You need to send us a letter signed for us to process the GST refund from the government. The Govt of India has issued a circular stating that all GST collected for COVID related cancelled events would be reimbursed. Hence, we would process the GST refund request on your behalf after we receive your letter for the same. We will immediately transfer the 18% GST fee back to you once we receive the same from Govt of India.
