  • To break the tie, if any, Random Tie Breaking Rank Generation method will be used.

After the seat allotment, the candidates will have three options:

Freezing: Choosing freezing option implies that the candidate is satisfied with the allotment and is willing to confirm the allocated seat.

Floating: Opting for the floating option means that in the further rounds of CCMT, a candidate is ready to consider choices in all the institutes.

Sliding: Choosing for sliding option is a clear indication that the candidate wishes to consider his/her choices only within the allocated institute, in the further rounds of counselling.

Note: Candidates opting for Sliding or Floating will have to give up the allotment.

Seat Acceptance and Personal Reporting: Candidates who will opt for the freezing option will have to pay the acceptance fee and report at any of CCMT 2017 Reporting Center (RC).

The amount has to be paid through SBI MOPS. However, the balance admission fee of the institute is to be paid at the time of admission.
