Should I go for spot round or not?


Hi Innovators!

Its tough season with mtech admissions as many aim to fulfill their dream of getting the college and branch of their choice. CCMT counselling itself is with so much of confusion as information brochure has details not so clear to many. Now as soon as the third round counselling gets over, one will have to take a tough call on whether to take their allotted seat or Go for NSR (National Spot Round).

The below article is contributed by Akant Sharma, a enthusiastic and valuable contributor at InnovateHub.
Hope the below article help in clearing your doubts on NSR.

Comparing CCMT 2015 & 2014, there is a very subtle but very important difference. The difference is in 2014 internal sliding & round 4 both are done simultaneously while in 2015 first internal sliding will be done & after which NSR will be done.(for me round 4 and NSR are same except fee condition because both involves surrending seat)   Now what is the difference in the above. The difference is internal sliding timing. For example, if one gets computer science seat in MNNIT Allahabad & he surrenders his seat for better NITs like Calicut,Warangal,etc. and suppose in NIT Calicut one has taken Information security & chooses option I or II(in previous rounds which will be automatically upgraded to option II after round 3) and he takes his admission finally.   Then after round 3 some candidates with computer science in NIT Calicut surrenders. & due to internal sliding the candidates of NIT Calicut of information security with option II will upgrade to computer science  thus filling the vacant seats of computer science & making vacancy of Information security in NIT Calicut. Similarly, in MNNIT Allahabad the candidate seat of CS might  be taken by candidates of IS & software engineering in MNNIT Allahabad with option II. So, In this case the candidate may end up losing his seat  But what is definite from above that some seat will be vacant originally holding by candidates that are waiting for IITs. & the seats in higher preference college will also be vacant but of lower priority choices. So according to above example the MNNIT Allahabad candidate which has surrender his Computer Science seat for  higher college will definitely get seat in higher NITs in Information security or software engineering but might not in computer science and even he might lose his seat due to internal sliding in MNNIT allahabad. So what finally should be decided if your preference is COLLEGE and NOT BRANCH then you can go for NSR & if your preference is BRANCH and NOT COLLEGE then you should not go for NSR as you might end up losing your own seat with particular branch.

Information for allotment and reporting for CCMT


Hi Innovators,

Please refer the CCMT Brochure before filling the choices at CCMT RCs. Below I have noted the important points:

5.2 Seat Allotment and Reporting

The first round of seat allotment will be displayed on the websitewww.ccmt.inas per schedule given in Section 5.7. Individual allotment letters will NOT be sent to the candidates.

 All candidates who get a fresh allotment will have to report in person to any one of the Reporting Centers (Annexure – VIII of the Information Brochure) within the scheduled time frame, failing which their seat allotment shall stand cancelled and they will not be considered for further rounds of seat allotment, including National Spot Round (NSR).

 Candidates will have to produce in original, the valid GATE Score Card (downloaded copy is acceptable for GATE 2015)and all other relevant certificates/documents (as mentioned in Section 6.4.1) for verification. Twosets of photocopies of all such documents together with signed printout of registration form, locked choices and provisional allotment letter downloaded from the CCMT website should be available with the candidate at the time of reporting to the Reporting Center.

 Before coming to Reporting Center, the candidates have to pay the part of Institute fee 20,000/- (for all Categories) using their own computers (through Internet Banking/Credit Card /Debit Card) or from a local bank (through NEFT). Proof of payment of part of Institute fee is to be produced at the time of reporting.

 During reporting period, candidate willindicate her / hiswillingness to be considered for all the higher preferred choices (across the Institutes) during further rounds of seat allotment (Option I) OR choose to remain within the Institute allotted to them for consideration of higher preferredchoices (Option II), OR choose to remain with the institute and programme allotted to her/ him (Option III).

 Option I and Option II candidates, if allotted their higher preferred choices during subsequent rounds, will compulsorily forfeit their claim on the seats allotted to them in earlier rounds.

 A Document Verification Note (DVN) will be issued to the candidates at the Reporting Center after verification of all documents, and certificates / credentials.

 Some of the Institutes and programmes have additional restrictions on qualifications, age, gender and categories (given in Annexure VI). Candidates are advised to ensure themselves that they satisfy all the additional criteria before they fill in their choices for these programmes / Institutes. CCMT will not be responsible for any errors / misjudgments made by the candidates.

 The second and third round of allotments will be displayed on the CCMT website as per the schedule given in Section 5.7. Similar reporting procedure will be followed for second and third round of allotments.

 Candidates can approach the Reporting Center to withdraw from the CCMT counselling process and initiate the process of refund of ‘part of Institute fee’ paid by them,during any reporting period.

5.3 Reporting at RC

During first three rounds Candidates who get their seats for the first time in any of the first three rounds of allotmenthave to report to any one of the Reporting Centers during the respective reporting period. Candidates whogiveOption III in any round of reporting can complete their provisional admission process by paying the balance institute fee using their own computers (through Internet Banking/Credit Card /Debit Card) or from a local bank (through NEFT) during the prescribed period given in Section 5.7 and need not report in RCs in the subsequent rounds.

Candidates who have reported during the first round and given the options as I or II,may change their Option from Option I to Option II, or Option I to Option III OROption II to Option III, during second round of reporting, if they want to do so. For this purpose, they have to report to the same reporting centre during the reporting period of second round with the earlier issued DVN.

Candidates who have reported during the secondround and given the options as I or II,may change their Option from Option I to Option II, or Option I to Option III OROption II to Option III, during third round of reporting, if they want to do so. For this purpose, they have to report to the same reporting centre during the reporting period of third round with the earlier issued DVN. After 3rd round counseling, all non-reported Option-I cases will automatically be converted to OptionII.

Candidates who are allotted seats for the first time in the third round, have to pay 20,000/- (for all Categories) using their own computers (through Internet Banking/Credit Card /Debit Card) or from a local bank (through NEFT), before reporting at RC. The reporting procedure is same as that of previous rounds.

Candidates who giveOption II in third round can complete their provisional admission process by paying the balance institute fee using their own computers (through Internet Banking/Credit Card /Debit Card) or from a local bank (through NEFT) during the prescribed period given in Section 5.7 and wait for internal sliding.

Candidates who are not satisfied with the allotment but already paid the part institute fee 20,000/- should report to the same Reporting Center for surrendering their seats and getting their choices unlocked during third round of reporting in order to participate in NSR.

The part institute fee will be refunded later after deducting 1000/- towards processing fee.All candidates, who surrender their seat, forfeit all claims on the seat allotted to them. After the surrender process is over, their original choices would be unlocked. These candidates may modify their choices during the choice filling period for National Spot Round(NSR) as given in Schedule (Section 5.7) Choices of all registered candidates who do not get a seat in round 1, 2 or 3 will be automatically unlocked.They are not required to approach any Reporting Center for getting their choices unlocked.

Important Notices

Notice – 1 : Instructions for allotted PWD candidates

The allotted PWD candidates in each round of allotment are advised to proceed for reporting at any RC on the second day of that round (i.e. for Round 1 – 02nd June, Round 2 – 11th June, Round 3 – 21st June, NSR – 07th July). If there is any difficulty on that particular date, the candidates may request with sufficient justification to the Center-in-Charge of desired RC, in advance, for another reporting date. This will help in arranging the medical board.

Notice – 2 : Corrigendum to the second point of Section 5.2 of Information Brochure

The second point of Section 5.2 of Information Brochure should be read as follows :

“All candidates who get a fresh allotment will have to report in person to any one of the Reporting Centers (Annexure – VIII of the Information Brochure) within the scheduled time frame, failing which their seat allotment shall stand cancelled and they will not be considered for further rounds of seat allotment, including National Spot Round (NSR).”

Hi Innovators,

CCMT Counselling i.e. CENTRALIZED COUNSELLING for M.Tech./M.Arch./M.Plan. It is the counselling for GATE qualified candidates for getting admission into IIITs, NITs, IIEST, and few other National engineering Institutes of India. Now without prior information one can get confused. So here is the latest and all available information for the CCMT counselling.

Previous Year Cut offs:

2013: Round1 Round2 Round3 Round4

This year’s Cut Off:

2015: Round1 Round2 Round3 Round4(NSR)

This years cut off is comparatively lower than last year. There is a clear difference of some 40-50 scores in the below two examples:

1) ABV-Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management Gwalior – (GW)

Information Technology – (IT) Computer Science & Engineering – Information Security – (XF)

2014: 645 OC 580 OB 429 SC 330 ST

2015: 602 OC 523 OB 405 SC 265 ST

2) NIT Trichy

Computer Science and Engineering Computer Science and Engineering

2014:  798 OC 753 OB 630 SC 564 ST

2015: 778 OC 718 OB 604 SC 445 ST

so one should not be disheartened at all. There all lot more opportunities this year. Keep tuned for more information on this.
