Prof. Sunil Kr Sarangi
Director & Chairman, CSAB-2013
Date: July 19, 2013.
Sub: Confusion regarding dates for ”Reporting to Institutes”.
Two rounds of normal counselling are now over and every successful candidate has
reported to an RC and obtained his final (almost) seat allotment. One round of upgradation is
due today and some upgradation is expected. In the mean time, institute reporting date has
been announced to be 20th
I am receiving queries from parents on the tight time schedule for reporting and a fear that
“unless one reports to the Institute within these 3 days, he will lose his seat”.
This message from me is only to confirm that there is no such danger. A seat, now allotted,
is yours for ever. It will never be given to another candidate. There is no time limit from
CSAB side on when you can report to your institute. Please check with your institute and
follow their advice.
Your seat will never be refused to you; but unless you join early you will lose attendance
and, depending on the rules of your institute, you may be debarred from exams.
Therefore, please join your institute as early as possible, but do not panic if you cannot make
it in 3 days. If you report during announced 3 days, i.e. between 20th
July 2013, the
admission office will be 100% functional and your process of joining will be easier.
All institutes are requested to also abide by the above spirit and permit students to join within
a reasonable period (say 1, week) of the starting of classes. Needless to say, attendance
issues will be handled according to rules of respective institutes.
With best wishes,
Sunil Kr Sarangi
