DASA is a Government of India scheme for admission of foreign nationals in leading institutes of India such as NITs and IITs. Admission in various UG and PG architecture and engineering programs is offered to applicants with a valid Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) score.

Applicants will need to register for the spot round separately, even if they've registered for the previous rounds. In the spot round, vacant seats will be allotted to candidates. Those who have not been allotted a seat yet can apply.

The applicants who have been allotted seats previously but are not satisfied with their results can also apply for the spot round. However, they will only be able to do so, if they had chosen the option to freeze their seat during the previous round. If an applicant has already reported to the institute, then they can no longer register.
