    Sir, Yesterday I went to register my name, but there I was that they require my signature in capital letter, hence I couldn’t do it as I didn’t have any scanned copy of my signature in capital letters,
    Now I’m puzzled to see their requirement for signature in capital letters….. Will you please clarify me about that matter?
    Thank you very much
