RESERVATION OF SEATS
Types of Reservation: Out of the total Merit Seats available in Govt./Aided/Self Financing affiliated colleges for various PG Courses, seats will be reserved for different categories under the following main items:
(a) Reservation for nominees (b) Reservation for Persons with Disabilities (c) Special Reservation and (d) Mandatory Reservation Centralised Allotment Process:
Admission/ Allotment of seats under merit quota is governed by a Centralized Allotment Process. Selection/ Allotment of a candidate to any college will be based on the rank of the candidate and the availability of seats. While a reserved category candidate entitled to admission on the basis of his/her merit will have the option of taking admission to the colleges where a specified number of seats have been kept reserved for reserved category, but while computing the percentage of reservation he/ she will be deemed to have been admitted as an open category candidate and not as a reserved category candidate.
After the allotment, the prescribed fee due to the University will have to be remitted by the candidate to any branch of Federal Bank , as per the time schedule prescribed. Once the candidate remits the fee, a fee receipt will be issued by the bank, which shall be produced at the college at the time of admission. It is obligatory for the candidates to report to the college to which he/she is selected. Failure to appear before the Principal concerned for joining the course on the notified date and time will result in the forfeiture of his/her admission to the course and he/ she will not be considered for any vacancies arising in future.
Vacancies arising after the first round of allotment of seats will be filled up according to the rank of the candidate and reservation norms. Option exercised at the time of counseling will be final and the candidate is bound to accept the allotment as per the option. There will be no mutual transfer between the candidates from one college to another.
