Various govt scholarships like Medhavi Chhatra, and other scholarships may be offered by colleges for the students.
They have a criteria like if you have scored more than 90% in class 12, then you are eligible for the scholarship in some colleges. Also if you had a good JEE rank, then you may be eligible. So it is very subjective and depends on college to college.

I got 5606 rank in uptu ,88.32 Percentile in jee And 92 %in boards will I get cse branch in good college?
Well brother, I can understand your situation. I know you have worked hard for JEE mains but I believe with 88.32%ile in CRL category, you won't be getting decent college which I can recommend you.
Though with home state quota, there might be an increased chance of your's getting a seat but with such a rank it is very hard to get.
So, I would suggest you to prefer state engineering colleges. Some state eng. colleges are way better than even mediocre ranked NIT.
Also, I would recommend you to do take part in JoSAA and go to through all the round even the spot round. May be, some good fortune can turn your destiny.
Or the better recommendation can be
To prefer Thapur. It is one of the older colleges in education industry with better Alumni than many of the NIT's.
I got 5606 rank in uptu . And 92 %in boards will I get cse branch in good college?
Congratulations on getting such a good rank. Yes, you have a fair chance of getting a good college. Unfortunately you will not be able to get a government college if you belong to general category but you are eligible to get admission in JSS Noida, which is the best private college affiliated to AKTU. You might get CSE here otherwise you are sure to get CSE in AKG, KIET and ABESEC. I hope this information was helpful!
I wish you all the very best!
