A candidate is expected to freeze, slide or float the academic programme offered. By choosing ‘freeze’, you accept the seat allotted to you and withdraw from further rounds of counselling. ‘Float’ means that you accept the seat that has been allotted to you but would want a better programme. Whereas ‘slide’ again means you’ve accepted the seat but you seek for a different course in the same institute in which the previous programme was allotted. Once locked, no modifications can be made in it. Candidates who don’t choose any of the options wouldn’t be able to get admission in this academic session.

The release date of the first allocation list is October 17. And candidates can accept seats through ‘online reporting’. The online reporting session includes a number of tasks to be performed- fee payment, document upload and response by candidates to queries if any. Candidates who get allotted in Round 1 can report online, make fee payments, and upload documents from October 17 to 19. Also, there will be six counselling rounds this year instead of seven sessions.
