I applied online without uploading my medical report, can I cancel the relocation and re-apply with the medical report?

      Take the letter to the company and collect clearance letter…If they refuse to give you clearance letter, don’t report to your LGI and explain things for him. He will allow you to take part in the clearance exercise.
