If any student’s parents have not filed the ITR in the last 3 financial years or any of the last three financial years (including the latest/ last financial year), such student shall be required to place the proof of the Income certificate or appropriate Form issued by the IT Department, preferably Form No.- 16 showing that income of the parents of applicant candidate has been less than the minimum slab prescribed for payment of income tax, and for this reason the ITRs were not filed by the parents. Therefore such a certificate is necessary to be produced. Such a certificate may be procured by applying with the Income Tax Department online through a Chartered Accountant, where-after the said certificate must be produced.

Further, if any candidate is not able to produce any document about the ITRs filed in the last 3 years, then he must download the appropriate form (after consulting a good Chartered Accountant) available on the official website of the department and furnish the same. The application for grant of scholarship shall not be entertained, if any student has filed his application without any such document, as it is obligatory and mandatory for such students to procure one and file immediately or send copy online through e-mail to the official e-mail id of CAN Foundation.

In case, the attendance certificate or attendance sheets are not available with any student, then it is mandatory and obligatory for such student to approach both the Vice- Chancellor &the Registrar of their concerned University and request for issuance of a bona-fide letter in favour of CAN Foundation informing that the attendance of the applicant student has been more than the required minimum of 75% in the 6 trimesters/ 4 semesters of the last two academic years. The letter must specify, by both the signatories, to the letter that they have verified the attendance records of the concerned candidate and that they have record to their satisfaction that the concerned student is meeting the minimum attendance requirement of 75%. Such letter by both the VC &the Registrarmust also record in specific terms that the University does not maintain any attendance records of any student as a matter of practice.If any student is not able to produce even such a certificate, then he will not be considered for Project Dhananjay at all, because requirement of minimum 75% attendance is mandatory and cannot be dispensed with.

The website would prompt an error, if the concerned candidate had applied for assistance under Project Dhananjay, on the website and if their document file was above the prescribed limit, which is why a scanned copy of the application form along with the duly notarized affidavit, in the scanned form needs to be sent to the Foundation at its email address, i.e. canfoundation01@gmail.com.

Please specify in the application or email that mother doesn't have such document and doesn't file ITR. The applicant is required to furnish a scanned copy of the Aadhar Card of such parent.

CAN stands for Confederation of Alumni for National Law Universities. It is a duly registered charitable society, It has been formed by the coming together of alumni of various National Law Universities (NLUs) for the development of the students now studying in these NLUs and as a way for the alumni to contribute in the betterment of their alma maters, giving back to the institutions that gave them so much.
CAN has resolved to take a three pronged approach to achieve the broad goals as mentioned above. One, is for the betterment of students studying there, by helping them participate in co-curricular activities such as moots, paper presentations and the like, by sponsoring their participation, or helping them meet the yearly expenses of fees etc. Project Eklavya The second, is giving back to the institution at large, by helping the faculty serving there, advance in their careers, by undertaking further studies in the forms of diplomas or further degrees. The foundation will help them financially (partly or wholly) and in any other way possible. Project Kautilya The third, is focussed on fresh graduates. Litigation as a career choice, right out of University is daunting, and therefore, the Foundation aims to help these graduates by providing them with a stipend, and even securing employment for them, wherever possible. The over all aim is to improve the quality of advocates coming before various courts of the country, in our own small way. Project Chandragupta
The foundation will have people of eminence serving on an ‘Advisory Committee’ which will give their recommendations on the basis of criteria, under each of the projects of the Foundation. The same are soon to be published, on the pages dedicated to these projects on the website. The applications will be vetted by the Executive & Management Committees before getting final approval of the Advisory Committee.
Alumni of various NLUs form the backbone of this foundation. We rely primarily on tax free donations from them, and other individual donors. Secondarily, we may in exceptional cases, fund a certain application with help from our CSR partners What is CSR?

By practicing corporate social responsibility, also called corporate citizenship, companies can be conscious of the kind of impact they are having on all aspects of society including economic, social, and environmental.
