According to the varsity’s estimated data, around 59,730 applications have been received out of which 22,186 applications were approved, and 11,248 students secured seats by making the payment. Hence, the varsity approved around 37.14 percent of the applications by 5 p.m., Wednesday.
The first cutoff admissions took place between 12th October and 14th of October. Hence, the aspiring candidates had a period of 3 days to complete the admission procedure. However, a phenomenally huge number of applications were made only within the 3 days of the first cutoff admission.
The first cutoff admissions are now closed. Hence, 14th October was the last date to apply for admission under the list. However, fee payment can be made up until October 16.
