( This centralized system has replaced the older system, wherein students had to apply individually to various Institutes and go to every Institute for appearing in interview/counseling. The older system caused a lot of difficulties to students such as filling multiple applications, travelling long distances to various Institutes across the country and missing some Institutes due to overlapping admission dates. Centralized counseling has provided a system wherein the students can fill one online application form from their homes and apply to all programmes in all the participating institutions to which they are eligible. The overall convenience of students has been enormously increased due to centralized counseling. )

The counseling process consists of following steps:

  • Online Registration
  • Choice Filling
  • Locking of Choices
  • Online Seat Allotment
  • Seat Acceptance fee deposit
  • Personal Reporting at a Reporting Center
  • Getting Admitted to ‘Allotted Institute’
