Respected sir/Madam

I'm CHOW NAKUNAND SINGKAI(S/T),a Ph.D scholar from RGU,Itanagar ,Arunachal Pradesh.This yr. I have apply for this fellowship,but I conjecture it will not reach there in stipulated time .i.e 20 march 2011.But I have complete all the formalities in university in time.Arunachal Pradesh is very remote and far from the mainland where there is lack of proper transport and communication facilities.So I wish to know whether the esteem board will consider this case or not.
