    No commas belong here. It will be fine if you get rid of the commas.

    Thank both of you.


    Yes, I know comma is no need here, I use comma here to show the way of reading and understanding this sentence better.

    Can anyone help me? Which way is better to understand it.

    1. Renewal of, Certificate of Enlistment
    2. Renewal of Certificate, of Enlistment
    3. Renewal, of Certificate of Enlistment
