Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 21st Oct, 2019

hello,

to claim ews reservation it is mandatory to submit asset and income certificate. many people has applied for ews certificate and still did not get it.

if at the time of counselling you do not have ews you may show the income and asset certificate. still instructions is not clear about this.

if your jee main January session goes bad, you may re appear in April session, and you need to separately apply for it.

if you want to apply in both session you have to mention it at the time of first time registration. between the two better score will be considered.
