Selection of the candidates will be done in accordance with their inter-se merit drawn on the basis of All India Entrance Examination vis-à-vis the preference of Universities exercised by candidates. In case a candidate has not indicated his/her option for joining a particular university, his/her name will not be considered for that university.

The Selection Procedure will be as follows :

After the merit list is drawn more than double the number of candidates than the total intake only will be informed of their merit rank in the entrance examination. The candidates will also be informed about the total number of seats in each participating University. The candidates will be asked to exercise their options for joining the Universities in the proforma ( which will be sent by JNU ). The candidates will be asked to send to JNU a Bank Draft of Rupee 5,000/- ( Rupee 2,500/- in the case of SC, ST, PH candidates ) as initial security deposit giving their willingness to be considered for admission to the participating Universities in accordance with their options for joining the universities vis-à-vis their inter-se merit in the Entrance Examination. All candidates are advised to check the result on the web site of the university www.jnu.ac.in in the second week of February.

Before excerise the options candidates are advised to check their eligibility as prescribed by different University and ensure that they fulfil the prescribed eligibility.

The candidates who do not exercise their options for joining any of the participating universities will not be considered for admission to that university / universities. Candidates who don not fulfil the eligibility for any University would not be considered for admission to that University/ Universities.

After allotment of seats, the JNU will send intimation to the candidates about their allotment of the university and also to the concerned participating university to which the candidate has been selected. Please note that once allotment of University is made on the basis of inter se merit vis-à-vis options, other options of the Universities given by the candidate shall stand frozen. Candidates are advised to check the allotment of university on the website of the university www.jnu.ac.in in the first / second week of March.

The participating university will then inform the candidate about the complete admission procedure and schedule of their university as well as the amount of fee etc. to be deposited by the candidate. The initial security deposit already sent by the candidate through demand draft to JNU will be sent to the concerned University for refund after first semester.

In case the candidate is offered admission in accordance with his/her options for joining the universities vis-à-vis his / her inter – se merit, but subsequently in case he / she either does not join the concerned university or withdraws during the first semester then in that event, the initial deposit of Rupee 5000/- or Rupee 2500/- in the case of SC, ST , PH categories as the case may be, will stand forfeited.

The initial security deposit of Rupee 5000/-, ( Rupee 2500/- in the case of SC / ST, PH category candidates ) will be refunded in full to those of the candidates who are not offered admission to any of the participating university.

Candidates may note that request for transfer from one university to another will not be entertained under any circumstances. Therefore, candidates are advised not to make any request in this regard.

Only those candidates who will be asked to exercise their option, the list / letter of these candidates will be available on JNU website www.jnu.ac.in although intimation to this effect is also sent to the candidates on their e-mail account. However, the candidates are advised to find out through their own sources whether their names appear in the list and thereby make arrangement for sending their final option together with initial security deposit by the stipulated date. The University will not issue any paper intimation to the candidates. Candidates are advised to regularly check JNU website for updates.
