This preference option is not available for Special Courses of Study and certain other regular / professional programs ( such as MCA on the main campus ).


Give your order of preference carefully. No section of the online preference form should be left blank. If any section is left blank, it will be presumed that candidate is not interested in that option. Candidates will get another opportunity of making changes in the entries made in the Online Preference Entry Form on the day of counselling ( prior to verification of documents ). Admission to Paid Seats will be done after the regular fee seats are full.

All those candidates who opted for Paid Seat while filling up the ‘Preference Entry Form’ at the time of Counselling will be arranged in order of merit, their preference of a course ( as given in preference entry form ) and availability of seats. In case a candidate, who initially got provisionally admitted in regular fee seat of his / her lower preference, gets an opportunity of higher preference course / honours / honours ( combinations ) / location under Paid Seat, he / she will be considered for Paid Seat for the course to migrate from his / her lower preference to higher preference.

After preference entry form is finalised, get its printout, sign it and submit it alongwith other required original documents at the Verification Desk.

Based on the preference of candidate given at the time of counseling, there could be change in course options, location and seat type ( free to paid and vice versa ). The final allotment done in this manner shall be binding on the candidate.
