(Just For an idea Dates are not exact)

This section provides only a broad overview of the stages involved in counseling and admission process. 

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. An application fee of `1000/- for SC/ST and ` 1500/- for rest of the categories is payable only by Credit/Debit Card/Internet Banking/e-challan (ICICI Bank only), is non- refundable and would not be adjusted towards any other fee [refer section 5.2 for e-challan guidelines]. The facility of payment of application fee by e-challan would be available only till 26th May 2013.
  • Candidates are advised to first check their eligibility to various programmes very carefully.
  • All eligible candidates will have to register during May 12 to May 29, 2013 and fill their choices ONLINE during

May 12 to June 2, 2013 on CCMT website 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 (see Annexure-VII) 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 5.00 PM on June 2, 2013.
  • Candidates will not be able to unlock their choices once they are locked.
  • If candidates fail to explicitly lock their choices by 5.00 PM on June 2, 2013, their last saved choices will be automatically  locked  after  this  deadline.  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. Therefore candidates are strongly advised to fill at least one choice of their interest as soon as they register.
  • Candidates must take printout of their registration form and locked choices. This printout, which will also mention 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 choices or fail to save them cannot be considered for seat allotment and admission, except that they may be considered for the spot admission round by respective NITs.
  • 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.

2 E-challan Guidelines

  • CCMT will not be responsible for any payments made after May 26, 2013 by e-challan.
  • E-challan payment could only be made by either cash or DD. In case of DD, please fill the details of DD correctly in the e-challan before submitting it to the Bank.

Branch Transaction ID and Branch SOL ID would be filled by the branch where e-challan would be deposited.
  • Please note in case you generate an e-challan and do not made the payment in the bank, your Registration Process will not be complete and you will not receive a Login / Password.
