  • Knowledge of Sanskrit and higher Mathematics are preferable but not essential.
  • In deserving cases, Managing Committee of Jyotisha Bharati may consider applications recommended by members associated with the Bhavan for more than 10 years for partial or full freeship of class fee or scholarship or payment of fees by installments.
  • The Jyotisha Bharati Library books costing Rs. 501- and above as well as books marked NOT TO BE ISSUED shall be accessible (in the library only) to Life Members who have paid Annual Library subscription and Deposits, to Jyotisha Bharati.
  • Members of the Jyotisha Bharati Library shall be eligible for issue of one book and one magazine only except in case of item no. 3 above.
  • Fine for late returning of books two weeks after the date of issue is Rs. 1001/- per week. Charges for mutilation of books to be paid, will be decided by the Managing Committee of the Jyotisha Bharati.
  • Special Lectures by eminent persons and scholars of Astrology are arranged whenever possible. Particulars of such lectures will be announced through display on the notice-board and Daily Engagements columns of local newspapers.
  • External students, if any, will be allowed to appear at the Junior Class Examinations on recommendation by a member of not less than 10 years' standing. But only those students who have personally attended the senior class lectures can appear for the Senior Class Examinations.

  • Unit tests will be taken during the year after sufficient prior notice and it is compulsory for the students to appear in these tests, as they are taken into account in the Final examination.
  • Important Instructions to Students: These days, it is observed, that most students are interested in predictive part of Astrology. As a result of this attitude, several students tend to ignore the Mathematical portion and they do not have sufficient knowledge or experience regarding preparing of different charts. Therefore, students are requested to note that Jyotisha Bharati puts stress on the knowledge of casting a chart and put it on par with the predictive capacity and it is recommended that they cast a minimum of fifty complete charts in the first year, which will enable them to locate and rectify the mistakes in the charts they come across and will thus be capable of pinpointing their predictions and this will further save from ridicule and loss of faith in Astrology.
  • RE-EVALUATION OF PAPERS: Students who feel that marks allotted to them either in the final or ATKT examinations are inconsistent with their expectations are requested to submit written application along with a fee of Rs. 1001- per paper. However students are hereby informed that this exercise will not involve rechecking of the papers or alterations of the marks actually allotted by the examiner but will merely be limited to ensuring that all marks allotted are properly counted for.
  • The decision of the Principal shall be final and binding and no further correspondence will be entertained.
Jyotisha Bharati Managing Committee reserves the right of making any changes whatsoever in the syllabus at any moment of the time with or without prior notice.
