    • How do I get an amritavidya mail id?

      If you are an Amrita staff (teaching or non-teaching) OR a PG or PHD student, you are entitled to get an amritavidya mail id. Normally, this is an automatic process and at the time you join Amrita University, as part of the initial formalities, ICTS creates an amritavidya mail id unique to your name. All official communications and announcements normally happen through this mail service. If for any reason, you do not possess such an email id, you can request for the same by approaching ICTS Helpdesk. A written approval from your HOD or reporting authority will be required, as a necessary formality.

    • How do I request for a new mailing list creation?
