  1. Dear Sir,
    I have finished my Ph.D. by the last June in Sanskrit Studies at Department of Sanskrit Studies, University of Hyderabad. presently I am working as a Research Associate in Medical Manuscript Digitization project at IHST private Ayurveda University. As being too late, today itself I have seen the notification of Sanskrit Library Assistant job notification. The last date to apply to that post is over. Do I have a chance to apply as a late? Kindly give me the proper information
