C-DAC’s Online Diploma admission process has two counselling sessions and three rounds of seat allocations. Counselling means online filling of preferences of courses and training centres by candidates. During both the counselling sessions, candidates can give as many preferences of training centres and courses that meet their eligibility.


  • There are two rounds of seat allocations based on the first counselling. This means that using the course-centre preferences given by the candidates during the first choice filling, two rounds of seat allocations (Round 1 and Round 2) will be done. Further details of the first counselling and first/second rounds of seat allocations are given in Sections 14(f-j) of this Admission Booklet.

    Depending on their C-CAT ranks, candidates will be allocated seats strictly based on the order of preferences of courses and centres given by them during the counselling. . If some candidates' ranks are not good enough to get them their top preferences in the first round of seat allocations, they may be offered their lower preferred courses/centres depending on their ranks. Such candidates may be allocated their higher-preferred course/centre in the second round of seat allocation, depending on their ranks. However, if candidates get their first preference in the first round of seat allocation itself, then that will be their final allocated seat and there will be no change for them in the second round of seat allocations. The seats allocated in the second round are final and there will be no further change in them.

  • Through the second counseling, candidates who have not got/confirmed admission are given one last chance to fill their preferences of courses and training centres online for the vacant seats that arise after the second round of admissions. The second counselling is scheduled after the payment of the first installment fee of the second round of seat allocation. The third round of seat allocation is based on the second counseling. The categories of candidates who are eligible to take part in the second counselling, and more details of the second counselling and third round of seat allocation, are given in Sections 14(k-m) of this Admission Booklet.

Based on the C-CAT ranks,admissions to various courses at different training centres are offered in the order of preferences of courses and centres given by the candidate and the number of seats available for the courses at the particular centres.Therefore candidates must take utmost care while filling the order of preference of the courses and centres. Under any circumstance, a candidate will not be allocated another course/centre which was not given as a preference during the counselling stage.


Important Note: A candidate cannot join a lower preferred choice if he/she is allocated a higher preference in any round of seat allocation.

Step 4 C-CAT Application – Payment of Examination Fee

The next step is the online payment of C-CAT fee. The details of payment are given in the section C-CAT Fee

Step 5: C-CAT Application – Selection of Examination Date

Once the examination fee is paid, candidates have to choose the date for appearing C-CAT, depending on the seat availability. C-CAT dates will be sequentially allocated to candidates (on first-come, first-served basis) as per their online applications. Once the capacity is full on any C-CAT date, that date will no longer be shown in the drop-down list on the online application form.

Candidates must ensure that they do not use any study/reference material / text books / external communications, etc. during C-CAT, which shall be treated as “use of unfair means”.

(e) Announcement of C-CAT Results 5 September 2020

The list of courses offered and the maximum number of seats available at all training centres of C-DAC are given in Table 4 of this Admission Booklet. During counselling, a candidate may give as many course-centre preferences as desired. Rank-wise seat allocation will be done based on these preferences and the availability of seats. Under any circumstance, a candidate will not be allocated another course/centre which was not given as a preference during the counselling stage.


Important Note: Candidates should verify the eligibility of each course before opting for it during choice filling. It will be the responsibility of candidates to prove that they satisfy the minimum eligibility requirements of the courses for which they are seeking admission.


After choosing the preferred courses and centres in the Choice Filling software, candidates should save their preferences. The unsaved preference list will be shown in red background and will be lost upon logging out without saving. The saved preference list can be modified (if required) and again saved by the candidate till 8 September 2020. These course-centre preferences will be considered in the seat allocation process in their order of preferences. Candidates will have the option to print the list of course-centre preferences saved by them.

Candidates can add or delete preferences and also change their order of preferences until 8 September 2020.The last-saved course-centre preferences will be considered as final and a candidate cannot opt for a lower preferred choice if he/she is allocated a higher preference in any round of seat allocation.


Important Notes:

If some candidates' ranks are not good enough to get them their top preferences, they may be offered their lower preferred courses/centres depending on their ranks. Such candidates may be allocated their higher-preferred course/centre in the second round of seat allocation, depending on their ranks.

Candidates will get to know the course/centre allocated to them by logging in on the C-DAC web site. All the seat-allocated candidates will also receive an e-mail notification.
