No. As the duration of the internship is short, that’s why interns have to be clear that they can commit to the duration indicated in the signed agreement. Sudden departures put projects at risk and must be avoided. If interns do not remain committed to the entire duration of their contract, the Centre reserves the right to annul the internship, the ED Visa, and levy an administrative fee.
