After seats are allotted, candidates can choose any one of these options:

  • Freeze: The option indicates that the candidate has accepted the seat allocated and is not interested in participating in further rounds of counselling.
  • Slide: This option indicates that the candidate has accepted the seat but, if the admissions are open in a better course in the same institute, he/she will go for an upgrade.
  • Float: This option indicates that the candidate wishes to accept the present allocated seat but is also looking for an upgrade if admissions are open in a better/higher preferred institute and course.
  • Withdraw: If any candidate has already accepted the allotted seat, he/she may withdraw the seat by reporting at the allotted institute before the final round of seat allotment.

The seat acceptance fee for general candidates is Rs. 35,000, whereas, for SC, Gen-PwD, ST, OBC-NCL-PwD, ST-PwD, and SC-PwD, the fee is Rs. 15,000. It can be paid through online payment modes (Credit Card, Debit Card, and Netbanking).
