The CSAB constitutes of NITs, SPAs, IIITs, GFTIs and other select reputed institutions or deemed universities.

CSAB NEUT holds counseling only for seats reserved in AICTE approved Institutes in India that are not covered under CSAB for the North Eastern States

Hi Deeksha, The state from where you have passed your 12th board examination is state of eligibility and if you are belonging to another state and passed the exam from another state then you have to produce a residency certificate.

Hi Rishika, No, there is no spot round allotment. However, there is a special round of counseling for NITs institutes only after all the 7 rounds of seat allocation are over. In this phase, candidates can choose to fill new choices.
