  • where is the office of zosta in mumbai?

  • is thereno award cerremony this year?

  • As every year ZOSTA holds an award ceremony it is very creditable and encouraging for the Parsi youth. But sadly, one has to be present to submit the forms and take the passes which is not possible for people staying out of Mumbai. To come there personally and register and take the passes I wish ZOSTA would think of alternative as it would help a lot of Parsis staying elsewhere. We would via e mail confirm the same and collect the passes 2 hours prior to the award ceremony. Please do think and discuss as it would be a great help. Thanks

  • When is the function this year for the SSC examinations held in March 2019?
