As I understand it, a Lakh is 100,000 Rupees? Indian or Pakistani? You have 700,000 Rupees in the bank account. At the present exchange rate that converts to:

Indian Rupee , 35,948 złotych

Pakistani Rupee, 20,523 złoytch

Apparently, a student entering Poland is required to have 543 zł per month for a stay of 15 months. You also have to have either a ticket home or an additional 2,500 zł to purchase one. So either way, Pakistani or Indian Rupee, you seem to have more than enough to meet the requirements.

As I understand it from the link I posted, the tuition is not included in the bank balance, only the living costs and he only needs to show that his living expenses are covered for a period of 15 months, not the entire three years:

"543 PLN for each month of the stay for a period of 15 months"

"or for the entire duration of intended residence in Poland, if the stay is intended for less than 15 (12) months."

The Polish government wants to attract foreign students because of the tuition fees they pay and expecting students to have enough money for three years is a bit unrealistic. I suppose that's why the ticket home cost is factored in, the idea being that if the student runs out of money and parents can't provide more, he/she can go back home.

But just in case you're not aware of living costs in Poland and especially in Warsaw, nobody can survive on 500 zł a month. He would need about three times that amount to rent shared accommodation near the university and have enough to eat. It would provide basic food and shelter and not much more. If he has very low rent, maybe he could manage on 1,000.

I'm afraid I wouldn't have a clue beyond the details given in the link that I posted. The only advice I can give is that usually with the Polish authorities it's always best to have more documents than less!

I think for work permit maintaining bank balance is not that required for migrating to Poland
