  • Date of Birth: If the tie between the candidates still does not get resolved, date of birth will be considered. Candidates born earlier will have higher rank than those born later.
  • Draw of Lot: If there is a tie even after applying all the above criteria, then the rank will be decided through a draw of lot.
