TCS skill letter HR email contact

TCS email for getting Skill Letter

For the skill letter, I sent a mail to today morning.
I also attached the template that you have shared in this site.

I have not heard anything back from them regarding anything, not even asking about BRM approval.
How long does it generally take for them to respond?

You have to ask them for skill letter only. They will initiate the process and then send you the template themselves.
I have shared the template just for convenience.
Did you check the TCS Alumni website to see if your Full and Final Settlement was completed?

Yes, The FFS was completed 2 weeks back, I had to pay 24 K INR after that they sent me a mail with the Release and Service Letter.

Ok. Good. Then reply on the same email or contact the same person who sent you the release and service letters and ask for ‘Skill letter for Green card’.

They will initiate your process themselves or connect with the corporate HR team.

Actually i got the Release and Service Letter from, when i replied to this email address, it bounced back with an auto generated email.

I have now sent a mail to, i hope they respond asap.

Hi Anil,
Finally sent me a mail on Friday(06/15/18) with the template and asking for approval from BRM.
I have sent a mail to my BRM, but he is not responding.
What can be done if the BRM does not send the approval mail ?

Congratulations. Things do move but a bit slowly.
The problem now is to talk it through with your BRM and get the approval. The HR is not going to help here at all.
You will have to drive this conversation with BRM.

In fact, you could have chosen anyone other than BRM too who was 2 designations above your last designation with TCS. That would have worked too.
BRM’s are specifically at onsite and may not respond well most of the times. It depends on what kind of relationship you have and what notes you left the company on.
Call, email or talk to BRM. That’s the only way out now.

My BRM finally gave the approval.
But TCS has changed the process a little bit. They also want my current employer send a mail to get the letter.
My employer has sent the mail to TCS team, hopefully i should get the letter this week.

They have also added a clause in the skill letter as -

(Please note: Skills and responsibilities specified are as declared by the employee and approved by the last Supervisor. This information is to the best of our knowledge and without prejudice).

I have one more query, not sure if you have any idea about it.
So, my perm with current employer is approved, but the previous designation mentioned in Perm was Computer Programmer(i gave this as that was my role for H1B).
Also TCS address provided in Perm is of the office in NJ.

Now TCS is going to provide me the letter with Mumbai Address and the designation as TCS designation.
I am worried if that is going to create any issues in i140 filing.


Thanks for sharing the feedback. It is indeed pretty useful for people who will be looking for this information.

The TCS designation does not matter with the PERM and i140 filings. The designation is company specific and can be different and is just a tag.
The job duties is what matters in the PERM and i140 approvals.

I have question for you:
Which email address does TCS asked your employer to send a skill letter request?
and is there any specific format for this request?
Will the skill letter be made specific to the employer (your current employer)?

I will update the article for future visitors with these answers. Thanks for your help

4 posts were split to a new topic: What to write on TCS skill letter having worked in 3 different projects in which two are networking based & one in finance based?

Hi! First of all, thanks for detailed instructions on obtaining the skill letter from TCS. I had worked in TCS from 2012 to 2014. I need a skill letter from TCS for Canada PR. I followed the instructions in this thread and sent an email to and got a response from them today.

The instructions were all the same.

But, my question is should I send a new email to my supervisor with the completed skill letter asking him/her for approval and then send the approved email to TCS exempverification?
Or, send an new email to the supervisor and copy TCS exempverification in that email?

If I cannot reach my GL/PL, can I take approval of my co-worker, who is still in TCS and but is now in a higher position than me?


Hi @monika
You should keep the email thread same. Do not initiate a new email.

The email should have the corporate HR in email cc field.
You can get approval from anyone who was senior to you while you were in TCS.

Thanks Anil, for your prompt response! Also, It was stated that:
**Request you to update your TCS employee id in the subject line for faster resolution of your query. **
Step 1: Request you to let us know the purpose for the skill certificate as it is provided for specific purpose only.

So, should I simply mention my employee ID? Earlier, I had put " 5XXXXX: Request for Skill Letter" isn’t that fine? Should i put the purpose in the subject line as well?

My co-worker and I were is same grade/level while i was working. Will it not work?

You can write the purpose inside the email.
Subject line needs to have your employee ID for easier tracking.

You can ask anyone in your department who was higher in designation to approve your request.

Dear Members,

I have sent an email to about a week ago but still haven’t got a response.

Any idea about how long do they normally take and if I should send a reminder email?

Hi @sahil_Kumar_Kashyap

Try re-sending an email.

Thanks a ton.
I got a reply from them but it asks me to follow certain steps even though i already got approval from my supervisor with skill letter having same format as specified by

Should i forward it to my supervisor and get all approvals again with skill letter as attachment or tell corporate.exempverification that i already have approvals in place?

Here is the mail that i got:

Dear Sahil,

Please note that the Skill Certificate is issued only once, based on approvals received and without prejudice.

Kindly ensure that you have covered all the points that you wish to include in the document prior to procuring your supervisors approval.

Please follow the steps to get the Skill/Experience certificate:

Step 1: Please let us know the purpose of the Skill Certificate.

Step 2: Use the attached skilled template which contain the following details:
• Date of Joining - (this will be as per TCS records)
• Date of Release - (this will be as per TCS records)
• Designation - (this will be as per TCS records)

• Skill set (2points ) / Role and Responsibilities in bullet points ( 5 points) - (needs to be updated by you)

• No project names, client names, Role Names , Different Designations, Salary details, Number of years, Time, Country name & date should be stated while providing the skill set.

Step 3:

• Contact your last PL/GL in TCS and get an approval on the same in email. Seeking this approval and following up with the PL / GL will need to be managed at your end.

Incase the supervisor is not active in the company; you can take the approvals from your GL/ BRM whose grade is higher than your grade and he/ she should be active in the company.

This approval email from the PL/GL has to be marked to along with the attachment in the history.

Step 4: Once the approvals are in place, Corporate Verification team will provide the Soft Copy of the Skill Certificate on the TCS Letter Head in email within 3 working days.

Step 5: Once you receive the same, you can use the soft copy or take a print out as required.

Please note: The attached template is an authorized standard TCS format which works well for various purposes. TCS does not authorize any alternate format to be provided for this purpose.

Note: - Skill Certificate will be issued only once and no changes can be made once it is issued. Hence, request you to please review and provide the details accurately.
