The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India took a policy decision in 2002 to conduct an All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) annually, doing away with many of the large number of entrance examinations that were being conducted till then by various institutes in the country for admission to undergraduate degree programmes in the disciplines of Engineering/Technology and Architecture/ Planning. This initiative has been widely accepted and appreciated.
A Central Counseling Board (CCB) constituted by the Govt. of India coordinated admissions to UG degree programmes in engineering, technology and architecture in respect of selected institutes till 2012. This year, Central Counseling Board (CCB) has been renamed as Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) and the same has been constituted with Director, National Institute of Technology Rourkela, as its Chairman. The Office Memorandum of Ministry of HRD, Govt. of India is placed at Annexure V of this brochure.
30 NITs, 6 IIITs/IIITM/IIITDM, 13 Central/State Government funded Institutes and Self Financed Technical Institutes (SFTIs) will admit candidates on the basis of their rank in JEE (Main)-2014 Common Merit List (CML) to the first year of Engineering/Technology and Architecture/Planning programmes through a centralized seat allocation procedure, for the academic session 2014-15.
Important features of the admission procedure, fee refund rules, admission schedule, list of Reporting/Help Centers, list of Participating Institutes with total number of seats, fee structure and contact addresses, seat distribution in the Institutes etc., are given in this brochure. Candidates are advised to read this brochure carefully and visit csab website www.csab.in regularly for updates and for details regarding the entire online admission process.
The entire seat allocation process comprises of four steps:
Step 1. Online registration: In this process, candidates eligible for central seat allocation should register themselves for online seat allocation in the CSAB website during July 01-05, 2014 from places convenient to them. Spot Round and Extra Spot Round registrations can only be done during July 17- 20, 2014.
Step 2. Online choice filling and locking of choices: After registration during July 01-05, 2014, candidates will be able to exercise their choices of branch and institute on the CSAB website using Internet during July 01-08, 2014 from places convenient to them. Candidates can lock their choices during July 06-08, 2014 and must lock the choices latest by 05:00 PM of July 08, 2014 from any place of convenience. The order of the choices is important and the seats will be allocated to the candidates in the order of the choices only.
Step 3. Declaration of Seat Allocation and Document verification: Candidates will be offered seats based on their choices in the order of merit (JEE (Main)-2014 All India Rank) over two rounds of allocation. Candidates who are allocated a seat will report to any one of the ‘Reporting Centers’ during the time frames specified, get the documents verified and pay the initial fee to mark their acceptance of the offer of seat. They will also be issued a provisional admission letter.
Step 4. Getting Admitted to Allocated Institute: Candidates are required to be physically present at the Institute where the candidate is getting admitted (herein after called ‘Allocated Institute’) after verification of all original documents as per the procedure of the allocated institute.
For most of the candidates the entire admission process is over at this stage.
Spot Seat Allocation: For the seats left vacant after the first two rounds of seat allocation process, there shall be spot round and extra spot round during July 17-20, 2014, where intending candidates are required to register (registration not required for those candidates who have already registered during July 01–05, 2014, i.e. in Step 1), fill in fresh choices, pay fees and then lock choices (at RCs only). For details please see Section 5.
In case of any dispute arising out of the seat allocation process at any stage up to the final allocation of Institute and/or branch, the decision of Chairman, CSAB-2014 shall be final. The jurisdiction for legal disputes, if any, will be limited to the High Court of Odisha at Cuttack, only.
For smooth functioning of admission procedure resulting into maximum number of candidates getting admission to the course and institute of their choice and minimizing the number of vacant seats, Chairman CSAB appeals to the candidates to carefully follow the admission procedure given in this brochure.
