If the GTML Credential is not renewed by the deadline, the TMI online directory carrying Credential Information of individuals around the world will show "Renewal Due" for a Convenience Period of 60 days, against the name of the credential-holder whose TMI Credential awaits renewal.

  • Credential Renewal Convenience Period +

    A GTML Credential can be renewed within maximum 60 days from the date it expires, by paying the prescribed fee (Refer to the fee schedule, GTMLR-2). If renewal formalities are not completed within the convenience period, the system automatically puts the credential into the temporary Freeze or Suspension Mode.

    If not renewed during the Credential Renewal Convenience Period of 60 days from the Standard Renewal due date, the TMI system automatically puts the credential into the temporary Freeze or Suspension Mode, and the credential-holder is required to apply for Reactivation of the credential within maximum 12 months from the date of suspension.

    For this duration, the official TMI online directory carrying Credential Information of individuals around the world will flash the term "Suspended (Reactivation due)" against the name of the individual whose TMI Credentials have been frozen/ suspended.

    Applications for Reactivation can be made directly through their individual myTMI account, by paying the prescribed fee (Refer to the fee schedule, GTMLR-3).

In the event, a cancelled credential's revival application is not submitted within the stipulated 30 days, TMI summarily withdraws the credential from the credential-holder, including all the privileges attendant to the credential. Individuals whose credentials have been withdrawn by TMI will be required to apply as fresh applicants.
