There will be one pending list also, in case if someone does not join the institute or opt for some other course, that seat will be given to candidates in the waiting list/pending list.

I know many local people used to eat in the mess even though they had the option of going home and having a lovely meal cooked by their mothers. If you don't like the food in a particular mess, you can change your mess within 2 days.
