FREEZE, FLOAT AND SLIDE OPTIONS
At the time of accepting the seat, a candidate can opt to ‘freeze’, ‘slide’ or ‘float’ the choice of academic program for subsequent round(s), if any, of joint seat allocation.
(A) Freeze: Candidates accept the offered seat and indicate that they are content with the allocated academic program and that they do not want to participate in further rounds of seat allocation. Such candidates will
NOT be considered in subsequent rounds of admission.
(B) Float: Candidates accept the offered seat and indicate that, if admission to an academic program of better/higher preference in any Institute is offered, they will accept it. Else, they will continue with the
currently accepted academic program. Such candidates will be considered in subsequent rounds of admission.
(C) Slide: Candidates accept the offered seat and indicate that, if admission to an academic program of better / higher preference is offered within the same Institute, they will accept it. Such candidates will be considered in subsequent rounds of admission.
(D) For candidates who choose the float or slide option, allocation of a seat in an academic program of his/her higher preference would automatically result in the forfeiture of the seat accepted by the
candidate in the earlier round.
NO Reporting: If you have accepted a seat in IITs/ISM in the previous round and now you have got a seat in any of the IITs/ISM only, then you DO NOT have to report to any RC.
Similarly, candidates continue with seats in NITs/IITs/Other-GFTIs do not have to report again.
Dual Reporting: If your seat in the previous round was in IITs/ISM and it is upgraded to a seat in NITs/IIITs/Other-GFTIs, then you must report once again to an RC of NIT+ system and accept the seat as per the reporting schedule of current round. It is similar if your seat in NITs/IIITs/Other-GFTIs is upgraded to a seat in IITs/ISM.
RC to Report: A candidate who is currently having a seat in NITs/IIITs/Other-GFTIs must only report to an RC of NIT+ system for any further service (e.g., withdraw or change of option). Similarly, those who are having seats in IITs or ISM must only report to an RC at IITs. Every time candidates must bring their documents for identity verification along with seat acceptance letter.
Withdrawal of Seat: Candidates who want to avail “withdraw” option must fill-in the requisite details (bank A/c No and cancelled cheque JPG image along with few basic details) online, generate Withdrawal Request Letter and carry the same to an RC for final formalities. Withdrawal cannot be processed without reporting at an RC.
Change of Option: Candidates who want to change their option (float/slide) of participating in further rounds must report to an RC along with filled-in form “Change of Option for Further Rounds”.
