ISA (Income Sharing Agreement) Questions
What is ISA (Income sharing agreement)?
The ISA norm enables you to get enrolled in our courses by paying absolutely nothing upfront. Once you are placed, you agree to pay us back the mentioned fees within the given time period. Moreover, if you do not get a job with the minimum guaranteed CTC within 1 year of completing the course, the ISA gets expired. If you are fired or leave your first job within 3 months of joining, the payment will get paused until you get a new one. In case, if you complete 3 months in your first job, you have to pay us the entire amount irrespective of your employment status after that.
If I get placed without the help of Newton School placement cell, will I still be obliged to pay?
If you get a job within 1 month from the start of the course, you don’t have to pay us anything. But after that time period, you’ll have to pay the fees even if you get placed without the help of Newton School. We believe that during these 6 months you'll receive tremendous learnings from this course which will help you crack interviews for software development jobs in various top-notch companies.
Is the income on an ISA calculated as cash-in-hand or CTC ?
As per the ISA, we charge a fixed amount of the total fees ( as per the courses ) + GST over the mentioned time period.
When do my ISA repayments start and what if I get fired or leave a job in between?
ISA will come into action once you get placed with a job of 5LPA as the min. CTC within 1 year after completion of the course. In case you are fired or leave your first job within 6 months of joining, the payment will get paused until you get a new job. If you complete 6 months in your first job, you have to pay the entire amount irrespective of your employment status after that.
What happens if I don’t get an offer with the minimum guaranteed CTC ?
Our target is to get you placed with the min. guaranteed CTC. However, in the rarest case if you do not land up a job with the same CTC, your repayment will not start. Your ISA will come into force only if you get a job > min. guaranteed CTC within 1 year of completing the course.
