In the present paper it is mathematically established that the linear growth rate of an arbitrary neutral or unstable oscillatory perturbation of growing amplitude in a triply diffusive fluid layer (with one of the component as heat with diffusivity ?) must lie inside a semicircle in the right half of the (p_r,p_i ) - plane whose centre is at the origin and radius equals v((|R|+R_1 )s) where R and R1 are the thermal Rayleigh number and concentration Rayleigh number with diffusivities ? and ?_1. Further, it is proved that this result is uniformly valid for quite general nature of the bounding surfaces.
