The entire process that a candidate has to undergo, consists of seven stages:
1. Registration & Applying for online test.
2. Writing NIMCET 2014 test.
3. Choice filling & Locking:
Candidates satisfying eligibility and qualifying criteria will be awarded with NIMCET-2014 rank. The result/ranks of the eligible candidates will be announced on 11-06-2014. The candidates need to download the rank cards from the website.
Candidates who got a rank can login and fill the choices of participating institutes in their order of preference between 16-06-2014 and 23-06-2014. They can modify these choices (or) reorder them any number of times before locking.
It will not be possible to access their choices after locking. All the candidates have to lock their choices on or before 5 pm on 23-06-2014. The choices of all candidates will be automatically locked by server at NIMCET-2014 at 5 pm on 23-06-2014.
4. Online Seat Allotment and personally reporting at any remote/participating institute:
Candidates will be offered seats based on their choices in the order of NIMCET-2014 rank in three rounds of allotment. Candidates who are allotted a seat must report to any one of the participating institute on the dates specified in each of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd rounds.
Reporting at any institute other than the allotted institute is called Remote Reporting. Remote reporting is permitted in first and second rounds of allotment only. During this reporting, all the candidates have to get their original academic documents, caste and relevant certificates verified and pay the initial fee Rs.10,000/- in the form of a State Bank Collect and give their option in the option form. They will also be issued a provisional admission letter.
Note: Candidates, who get seats in first round of allotment and do not report at any reporting center between 30-06-2014 and 01-07-2014, will be permanently deleted from the database and will not be offered any seat in subsequent rounds of allotment. Similarly, candidates who get seats only in second round (but not in first round) and do not report at any reporting center between 07-07-2014 and 08-07-2014 will be permanently deleted from the database and will not be offered any seat in the subsequent rounds of allotment.
5. Getting Admitted into the Allotted Institute:
After the third round of allotment, candidates are required to physically present at the latest allotted institute for admission between 17-07-2014 and 18-07-2014 and attend the classes.
6. Surrendering seats by the candidates:
Candidates who got seat allotted/upgraded in any round(s), and do not wish to join the institute, but wish to participate in the final round of allotment must approach a reporting center, surrender the seat between 21-7-2014 and 22-72014 by submitting a prescribed application. At a later stage, these candidates will receive Rs.9,000/- either through DD or online transfer in to their account based on their choice entered in the prescribed application while surrendering.
7. Fresh Choice filling and final round of allotment:
After third round of reporting, vacant seats in all Participating NITs will be published in the website http://nimcet2014.nita.ac.in on 25-07-2014. Candidates who were not allotted any seat from first to third round of allotment and those who have surrendered their seats are only eligible to fill fresh choices on 26-07-2014 for final round of allotment. Final round of allotment will be done on 28-7-2014 and candidates, who are offered seats in this round, must report to the allotted institute between 4-8-2014 and 5-8-2014 to attend the classes.
