The counseling process is followed in a series of steps and the applicants must keep a close eye on the dates and the steps of the process. After the respective entrance exams are conducted, the qualified students are allotted their institute with the help of the counseling process.
1. Depositing the Counseling Fee:
Candidates are required to deposit Rs.1000/- as a non-refundable counseling fee. After filling in all details, candidates get two options for payment, them being either cash payment (challan) or net banking options (credit card/ debit card/ E-wallets).
Candidates must check their fee payment status and make sure the transaction has gone through from the official website and obtain printouts for further steps.
After paying the counseling fee, the candidates are required to enter their CET details in which they are required to fill in their academic and personal details.
Candidates must take two printouts of the registration form.
3. Choice Filling
The choice filling is perhaps the most important step in the seat allotment process. Without it, candidates cannot be allotted their seats.
Candidates are required to fill out their choice of allotment seats after the registration process. They must select their desired choices from all available combinations of institutes that provide the MCA course.
Once the choices are filled, no candidate is eligible to fill in the choices of their preference or alter them. They are advised to fill in the maximum number of choices to increase the maximum number of chances of getting their desirable seats. The candidate should take a printout of their filled choices after clicking the “save” button.
4. Allotment of Seats (in every round)
After filling the choices according to the Candidate’s desires, the seats to the colleges will be allotted based on merit and the respective category and region of the candidates. Candidates are required to check their results from the candidate login account on the official website. If they are happy with the seat allotted to them, they can print the provisional allotment letter. Candidates are then required to pay Rs. 40,000/- to confirm their seats as a part of the academic fee.
5. Freezing the Allotted Seats
If the candidates are not satisfied with their allotted seats and do not wish to take part in any future counseling rounds, they are required to freeze their seats by choosing the ‘freeze option’
6. Withdrawal of fee (if required)
the academic fee, they can do so by selecting the withdraw option on the login account before the last date. After the fee is refunded and withdrawn, the candidate will not be considered for subsequent rounds of counseling except for ‘spot’ counseling.
7. Last Round of Allotment
After the final round of allotting seats, there will be no further option to withdraw the seat and fee refund, In the last round of online counseling, the category-wise and region-wise seats will be converted to the unreserved category of seats.
8. Sliding of Allotted Seats
Candidates with allotted seats, who have paid their academic fees and frozen their seats, and have not gone through the withdrawal process will be considered for the sliding round of online counseling. The sliding round is based on the preferences selected by the candidates in the initial rounds, and their merits. After the conclusion of the sliding round, the seat-allocated candidates must report to their respective institutions for verification of documents and submission of the balance amount of the fee.
9. Reporting to the Campus
After the sliding round ends, candidates can generate their provisional admission slips along with their enrolment number. They are required to report to their allotted college along with the admission slip, the provisional allotment letter, the academic fee receipt, and other necessary documents. If the candidate is not able to provide the documents necessary, their admission process is canceled. If seats are left vacant in the institutions, the university can update its status on the university website and conduct a spot round of counseling.
10. Spot Counselling
The spot round is finally conducted after the completion of the admission process for the vacant seats. Spot round is organized through offline mode, and candidates have to pay Rs. 2000/- as counseling fee for the same. All candidates with the ‘not admitted’ status must participate in spot counseling. Candidates who have withdrawn their seats can also take part in the spot counseling round.
MANAGEMENT QUOTA PROCESS IN IPU
Management Quota is a lifesaver and a second opportunity for those who wish to take admission to IP University but have failed to get admission through the regular counseling process, or have not been able to secure a good rank in CET or National Eligibility Test (JEE, NEET, NIMCET, CAT, and CLAT-UGC)
All the students, including the students from the National Capital Region of Delhi and Outside Delhi and who have given the Common Entrance Test (CET) or National Eligibility Test (JEE, NEET, NIMCET, CAT, and CLAT-UGC) are eligible for taking admission under the Management Quota no matter what rank they have secured. Under Management Quota your rank is not considered, but it is mandatory to have CET rank or National Eligibility Test (JEE, NEET, NIMCET, CAT, and CLAT-UGC) rank.
There is a pre-defined procedure to fill seats of management quota in IP University. The procedure ensures transparency in the admission procedure. It also allows more deserving candidates to get admission to the college of their demand. The Management Quota procedure is somewhat similar to the counseling process and allows the students to get a clear idea of their admission.
Following are the steps for the Management Quota Admission process-
The institute firstly must advertise its management quota seats. The result of advertising leads all interested candidates to fill the forms and reduces discrepancies in the admission process. It allows for the procedure to be transparent and fair. The Institute must provide at least 18 days for the candidates to fill out the form.
2. Prepare a Rank List
After the applications are received and the deadline has crossed, the institute must prepare a merit list based on the marks of the students in the concerned exams. The Institute is also required to publish a merit list of candidates as per the total seats available.
After the list is published, the institute is required to call the candidates for counseling for the course. The counseling cant is longer than 2 rounds and must be done within 3 days after the merit list is published. Moreover, the institute must update the remaining management quota seats after every round of counseling.
After the management quota admissions are done on the institute’s side, they must report it to the designated officer. The officer will check if the procedure is followed thoroughly and approve its credibility. After the approval, the institute can admit the students.
