    Hi Irshad!
    Welcome to the forum.
    Here is your answer.
    Till and until are interchangeable as both prepositions and conjunctions: It rained till (or until) nearly midnight. The savannah remained brown and lifeless until (or till) the rains began. So, you can use either. Also, till is not a shortened form of until and is not spelled 'till as commonly misunderstood. 'Til is usually considered a spelling error, though widely used in advertising: Open 'til ten.
    Hope this helps !
