Last Updated: 5th February, 2014
This section provides only a broad overview of the stages involved in Counselling and admission process.
5.1 Pre-allotment steps
Candidates are strongly advised to read instructions available on CCMT website on registration process and choice filling/ locking process before proceeding with the actual registration process.
Application fee for registration process is non refundable. A registration fee of Rs.1250/- for SC/ST and Rs.1750/- for rest of the categories, payable only by Credit/Debit Card/Internet Banking/e-challan (ICICI/SBI Bank only), is non-refundable and would not be adjusted towards any other fee [refer section 5.2 for e-challan guidelines]. Candidates can generate e-challan during the specified period given in Schedule (Section 5.7.
Candidates are advised first to check their eligibility for various programmes very carefully.
All eligible candidates will have to register and fill their choices ONLINE during the specified period given in the Schedule (Section 5.7) on CCMT website www.ccmt.in to become eligible for seat allotment.
All candidates must carefully enter the correct and verifiable personal information during online registration.
Candidates must read carefully all terms & conditions before clicking on the “I agree” check box.
During this period, the candidates are free to change, reorder, delete and add to their choices of programmes /institutes as per their preference till they lock their choice or till the last date of choice filling.
Candidate must ensure themselves that they are fully eligible and satisfy special eligibility conditions (given in Annexure-VI) for a particular programme before filling up that programme in the list of preferred choices. It would not be responsibility of the CCMT if their admission is later cancelled due to non fulfillment of eligibility criteria of a particular programme which they are incidentally allotted.
All the candidates must lock their final choices before midnight of May 23, 2014.
Candidates will not be able to unlock their choices once these are locked.
If candidates fail to explicitly lock their choices by midnight of May 23, 2014, their last saved choices will be automatically locked. Candidates are therefore strongly advised to lock their choices themselves. Candidates who have not filled even one choice would lose their chance to get admission as their applications would not be processed further.
Candidates must take printout of their registration form and locked choices. This printout, which also mentions the terms and conditions agreed to by the candidates, has to be signed and submitted at the time of reporting for admission.
Registered candidates who do not fill any choice or fail to save them cannot be considered for seat allotment and admission.
If the information submitted by any candidate is found to be fraudulent, incorrect or untrue, the seat allotted (if any) will be cancelled without any further reference. Moreover, such candidate may no longer be considered eligible for admission and will also be liable for legal action.
5.2 E-challan Guidelines
In case you generate e-challan you will need to take a printout of the e-challan, visit any branch of ICICI / SBI Bank only and make the required payment of Registration Fee in order to proceed with your Registration Process. Last date of depositing application fee by e-challan in any ICICI /SBI Bank is given in Schedule (Section 5.7).
CCMT will not be responsible for any payments made by e-challan after the due date as specified in the Schedule (Section 5.7).
E-challan payment could only be made by cash. Branch Transaction ID and Branch SOL ID would be filled by the branch where e-challan would be deposited.
In case you generate an e-challan and do not make the payment in the bank, your Registration Process will be incomplete and you will not receive Login / Password for further process.
