Accept and freeze: The candidate who wish to keep the seat offered to him/ her and do not wish to update any further.


 Accept with the upgrade: Choosing this action will reserve the seat and will also enable the candidate to upgrade the seat in further rounds.


 Reject with quit: Choosing this option will reject the offered seat and the candidate will not be considered for the admission procedure in further rounds.


 After selecting Accept and freezeor Accept and upgradee. the options that reserve the seat, the candidates will have to pay a fee of Rs 10000/- (General /OBC-NCL) or Rs 5000/- (SC/ST/PwD category Applicants) to reserve the respective seat. And if one chooses to Reject and Quit an OTP will be sent to the registered mobile number to confirm the action.


Applicants who receive the seat from their higher preference list don’t need to pay again to reserve the seat. And if someone cancels the seat during the second round, can choose to withdraw and the fee will be refunded to their account after deducting Rs 1000/- processing fee.


 If there’s still any seats remaining vacant they will be allotted to the candidates through third admission list by June 2019.This will be the final list, after this list, the admission process will stop for the 2019-2020 session.
