      Rohith Chintu

      I got a college which is really far away I would like to know if it remains as an option if I go for second counselling or should I first submit the documents and then apply for second counselling ?

      20 Aug, 2019 11:06
      Shobhna Chaturvedi

      Hi Rohith, you may attend second round of counselling but it would be advised to freeze your seat in the college which is currently allocated to you. In case you get the preferred college in second counselling, you may leave your seat in the previous one and get document verification done in the new college.

      20 Aug, 2019 12:16
      Rohith Chintu

      So I just need to pay the challan and wait for second counselling or should I also provide my documents ?

      20 Aug, 2019 13:07
      Shobhna Chaturvedi

      Paying the challan would be enough as document verification would be done only after your seat gets finalized. So that will be the last step.
