The cancellation deadlines for the round when an applicant was offered a seat for the first time and accepted will determine the refund amount in case of seat cancellation. This is regardless of whether (a) the seat offered and accepted for the first time was in a programme of highest preference of the applicant or, (b) there was an upgrade in a later round, to a seat in a programme of higher preference of the applicant.
Refund Illustration:
1. Suppose an applicant’s program preferences are [A, B, C] in that order.
2. Suppose the applicant did not get a seat in Round 1.
3. Suppose the applicant gets a seat in Program B in Round 2 and accepts it. Then, cancellations dates and refund amounts of Round 2 will apply to the applicant.
4. Suppose the applicant gets an upgrade offer to Program A in Round 3 and accepts it. Still, the cancellations dates and refund amounts of Round 2 will continue to apply to the applicant.
5. In case the applicant cancels the seat, the refund amount is as mentioned for Round 2 (and not Round 3), as on the date of cancellation.
