Seat Allotment: Allotment will be done in several rounds based on candidate ranks.(for example the first 15,000 rank candidates for first round, Rank 15001- 40,000 for second round and so on.) Eligible candidate will be asked to exercise their choices during the time allotted for the round after paying the initial admission fee online.

If a seat is allotted, candidates have to confirm the same; otherwise they have to exercise one of the options available online and within the given time period.
If a seat is allotted it will be shown in the portal and the allotment order will be sent to candidates. Candidates can approach the institution, where seats have been allotted for admission.
