A day is divided into multiple sessions and the first session begins at 8:00AM. The candidate will be allowed to participate in accordance with the notified time schedule and as per the stipulated rank ranges only.
The candidates are required to get the original documents verified and later to register themselves in the counter where it gets entered into the computer system. Unless the candidate is registered he/she cannot participate in the seat selection process. As biometric verification, photo verification and signature verification will be made, the candidate’s physical presence is compulsory. Candidate may be accompanied by only one person (parent or guardian) for the seat selection.
Once the registered candidate comes to the seat selection after verification of documents, a merit list is generated for each of the session. Unless a candidate who has a better rank gets the opportunity to select a seat, a candidate who has the rank next to him cannot think of bypassing him. The candidate has to wait for his/her turn at the seat selection terminal.
A dynamic screen will show course-wise and college-wise availability of seats, which helps the candidates to make up their mind in advance. The moment the option is exercised, the computer will show one seat less against the course and college from which the candidate has selected the seat. Therefore, once a candidate selects a seat according to order of merit, it cannot be changed subsequently.
The entire seat selection process is computerized right from the stage of registration till the stage of printing of the Allotment letter. The highly sophisticated software used in the system has the ability to control the initial registration, provide data for selection of the seats by the candidates in the order of merit, payment of fees and finally printing of Provisional / Confirmed Allotment letter.
For Medical / Dental Seat Counseling
After seat selection, the candidate has the option of getting either Provisional or Confirmed allotment letter.
Provisional Allotment Letter (only during first round counseling) will be issued, if the candidate wishes to retain the original documents and submit only a set of attested photocopies of the documents and the Demand Draft for the prescribed annual tuition fee. However the Candidate cannot report to the college with the provisional allotment letter.
A candidate who has taken provisional allotment can confirm his seat by converting the Provisional Allotment to confirmed allotment which enables the candidates to report to the college allotted. However, once a candidate obtains confirmed allotment letter after surrendering the provisional allotment further surrender of seat is not permissible.
The candidates are required to get the Provisional letter of allotment converted into to Confirmed Allotment on or before the prescribed date (to be notified later) by submitting all the Original Documents and then report to the allotted college.
If the candidates fail to get provisional allotment letter converted into Confirmed Allotment Letter on or before the prescribed date (to be notified later) they will not only forfeit the selected seat but also lose a sum of Rs.50, 000/- of the fee deposited as penalty and receive the balance in the form of Crossed Cheque in the name of the Candidate only. Seats thus falling vacant due to forfeiture will be added to the pool and offered in the Second and Final round of Counseling.
Confirmed Allotment letter will be issued only, if the candidate submits all the Original documents along with the Demand Draft for the prescribed annual tuition fee. Candidates can report to the college with the Confirmed Allotment Letter. Candidates are required to make photocopies of confirmed allotment letter that will be required for final round of counseling. This is all the more applicable for candidates who might have reported to the colleges by submitting their confirmed allotment letters at the college level.
For Engineering / Architecture Seat Counseling
After verifying the original documents one set of attested photocopies and Demand Draft drawn on Nationalized Bank in favour of COMEDK payable at Bangalore for Rs. 50,000/- are required to be submitted by the Candidate. The balance tuition fee as applicable and all the original documents are required to be submitted to the College at the time of reporting.
After seat selection, the candidate will be issued only a Confirmed allotment letter. The Candidate will then go to the Bank counter and deposit the Demand Draft for Rs.50,000/- and obtain fee receipt and the allotment letter which has security features.
21. The seat Allotment letter has built in security features and cannot be duplicated. No Duplicate Allotment letter will be issued for any reason. If it is found that the allotment letter issued to the candidate is tampered, COMEDK reserves the right to cancel such allotment and withhold the fee paid.
22. If the Confirmed Allotment Letter is lost, the Candidate will lose the selected seat as well. Hence the candidates are cautioned to be more careful and submit the same only at the College allotted while reporting.
