Seminar held in the afternoon of Sunday at Skyland Business Center Cumming, GA (USA).

Shilpa Gokare, Attorney at Law at Gokare Law Firm has introduced Manjunath Gokare. After a 45-minute presentation about the changes in OPT rules, a Q&A session was held immediately after a coffee break. Many participants asked several relevant questions were still eager to ask many more.



Before concluding the seminar, TAMA Chairman Ram Maddi, President Venkat Meesala and several Directors and Officers of EC came to podium to recognize the volunteer service of Manujath Gokare and his Team. While speaking Venkat Meesala said, 'besides regular cultural events TAMA has been organizing several Seminars on contemporary issues relevant and useful to the whole community'.

Major highlights of changes that came into effect from May 10, 2016 are,

● The OPT extension period for STEM OPT students is increased to 24 months from 17
● Only two 24-month STEM OPT extensions are allowed during a student's lifetime ' for the second extension, the completed degree must be at a higher level
● Previously only one lifetime STEM extension was allowed
