Candidates will NOT be able to change their choices / preference order any more.


  1. Seat Allocation: The computer system allocates seats to candidates based on their merit rank vs candidate’s choices in their category e.g. Open, Gen, SC, ST, OBC-NCL, PWD, EWS etc. There will be 5 rounds of automatic seats allocation. Candidates will have to exercise their “Seat Acceptance Options” in each round they participate in, as given below.


  1. Options: If a seat is allocated to the candidate, they will receive an “Initial Seat Allotment Intimation Slip”. They must exercise one of the 3 choices provided-to ‘freeze’, ‘slide’ or ‘float’. Please read point XVIII on pages 31-35 of the Business Rules PDF. For both slide and float options, the candidate can retain their seats, while trying to improve their program or institution as per the choice list they have submitted.
