Admission Process and Rounds:
  • The admission process has multiple rounds.
  • In each round, the institute will allot a seat to the applicant, and the applicant will have a deadline by which they can accept or decline the allotted seat.
  • In the event no seat is allotted to the applicant, the applicant can choose to continue to further rounds. This is NOT automatic.

(Jump to Round and Refund Schedule)

Seat Acceptance:
  • The applicant should use the portal to explicitly accept the seat and pay the required fees as given below.
  • Applicants who fail to do so will have their seat allotment cancelled and will not be considered for further rounds of admission.
Continuation to Further Rounds:
  • An applicant MUST explicitly concur (agree) to participate in further rounds of seat allotments. This requires logging onto a portal and indicating acceptance and paying the required fee.
Cancellation and Refund Policy:
An applicant can cancel their seat allotment at any time before reporting to the institute by selecting the cancel seat option in the portal. Depending on the round of seat allotment and the date of cancellation, appropriate refund of the total amount paid will be sent back to the applicant by the end of December 2020. Refund amount details for each round are listed in the table below.
 
Admissions Counseling Procedure (Summary)
  1. In every round, an applicant has to either accept an allotted seat or confirm their willingness to participate in the next round by a specific deadline.
  2. If a seat is allotted and you are satisfied with your current allotment, accept, lock the seat, and proceed for payment in the online portal. The allocation will be locked in your name and you will not be considered for your higher preferences in subsequent rounds.
  3. If you want to be considered for your higher preferences in the next round of allotment, you need to first accept the seat and make the required payment to complete the seat acceptance. You can leave the accepted seat unlocked while doing so. Failure to accept the allotted seat and pay the fees will remove you from all subsequent rounds of seat allocation.
Admissions Counseling (Detailed)
The flowchart below explains the process that an applicant is to follow in every round.
If you do not lock a seat and the seat is upgraded in a later round, you will have to accept the upgraded seat or give up the seat. You cannot go back to your earlier allocated seat.
