1 Introduction to COAP

COAP provides a common platform for the registered candidates to make the most preferred choice for admission into an M.Tech. Programme in the participating Institutes or job offer from participating Public Sector Units (PSU’s). Eight institutes (IIT Bombay, IIT Bhubaneswar, IIT Delhi, IIT Guwahati, IIT Indore, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Madras, IIT Roorkee) joined in COAP 2017 and seventeen institutes (IISc, IIT BHU, IIT Bbs, IIT B, IIT D, IIT G, IIT H, IIT I, IIT (ISM) Dhanbad, IIT K, IIT Kgp, IIT M, IIT Mandi, IIT P, IIT R, IIT Ropar, IIT Tirupati) participated in COAP 2018. In 2019, twenty one institutes and a PSU NPCIL (refer pages 14-15 for the complete list) came together and participated in COAP for filling their M.Tech. seats or job vacancies.

2 Salient features of COAP

 COAP refers to Common Offer Acceptance Portal, on which all Participating Institutes / PSU’s will upload their offers in a common time window as specified.
 The registered candidates can access the admission / job offers by registering at COAP from all the participating institutes / PSU’s where they have applied for M.Tech admissions / jobs.
 For admission into M.Tech program in any of the participating institutes or applying for a job in any participating PSU, every candidate should also apply to the corresponding Institute/ PSU

 To understand the mechanism of looking at all the available offers and making a specific choice out of the offers, the candidates are advised to read the guidelines and then register at COAP 2020.
 COAP is not an Application Portal for M.Tech admission in any participating institute. Candidates should apply separately to the respective Institute(s) for M.Tech admission / PSU for the job.
 Each participating Institute / PSU will follow the selection procedure as per the norms and guidelines of the respective Institute.
 To access and make a decision on the most preferred choice out of the offers (if any) made by participating Institute(s), each candidate should register at COAP.
 COAP registration is completely free. Note that providing COAP registration number has been made mandatory by the participating institutes in their M.Tech application portals.

1. Candidate must be an Indian National.
2. Candidate should have a valid GATE score (Qualified in GATE 2020/2019/ 2018).
3 Guidelines for COAP 2020

The purpose of COAP is to fill all the M.Tech. seats in the participating institutes and also to provide a common platform for all the participating PSU’s to upload their Job offers to the GATE Qualified candidates. The objective
is to enable fair chances to all participating institutes as well as M.Tech. admission seekers/ PSU Job seekers. To realize this goal, the following guidelines have been proposed 1 Participating Institutes/ PSU’s upload their offers (seats/ jobs) during some prefixed dates (See Table 1&2) and the registered candidates can choose any one of the available offers, during each round of offers. A candidate can select maximum of one offer out of all available offers in each round. Candidates will have the following THREE options in each main round.

1.1 Option 1- ‘Accept and Freeze’: This option should be selected if a candidate is willing to accept one of the available offers and does not like to be considered for upgrading to higher preferences, if any, in the subsequent round(s) of admission. Candidates selecting this option WILL NOT be considered in the subsequent round(s) of admission in any of the participating academic Institutes and PSUs. After clicking the ‘Accept and Freeze’ option, the candidate should click submit button to confirm the submission of his/her decision. Subsequently, the candidate should visit the respective Academic Institute’s Admission Portal or PSU’s Job Portal and follow the procedure as per the instructions on the respective website. Congratulations.

1.2 Option 2- ‘Retain and Wait’ : This option should be selected if a candidate indicates his/her partial acceptance to any one of the available offers and also would like to be considered for upgrading to the candidate’s higher preferences, if any, in the subsequent round(s) of offers. Candidates selecting this option WILL NOT be considered for the other rejected offers in the current round. However, if any higher preferred offer is made in the next round then the existing ‘Retain and Wait’ offer will be released. However, a candidate can choose “Retain and Wait” on the same offer (same institute and same program) only twice. Nevertheless, the candidate will be considered for other higher preferences, if any, in the subsequent round(s) of admission offered in the participating academic Institutes and PSUs. After clicking the ‘Retain and Wait’ option, the candidate should click submit to confirm the submission of decision.
1.3 Option 3- ‘Reject and Wait’ : This option should be selected if the candidate is not willing to accept any of the offer(s) of admission / job in the current round. Nevertheless, the candidate will be considered for other higher preferences, if any, in the subsequent round(s) of admission offered in any participating academic Institutes and PSUs. Please note, the same offer will not appear in the subsequent rounds as you have rejected this offer. After clicking ‘Reject and Wait’ option, the candidate should click submit to confirm the submission of decision.

2. After making the final choice, candidates have to complete the submission procedure by clicking ‘submit’ button. Without completing the submission procedure, it will be treated as if the candidate has not accessed the COAP (vide 5).

3 After selecting an offer of joining / admission with “Accept and Freeze” option, the candidate should visit the concerned organization’s Webpage / Institute’s M.Tech. Admission portal for the subsequent admission / joining procedure. The admission / joining procedure should be completed by the candidate within the due date specified by the admitting institute / PSU.

4 Once a candidate declines / rejects offer(s) in a particular round, the candidate will not be considered for the same offer(s) thereafter. However, the candidate (either with option ‘Retain and Wait’ or with option ‘Reject and Wait’) will be considered for the higher preferences, if any, in the subsequent round(s) of offers.

5 Candidates should visit COAP Portal during each round of offers till the decision of “Accept and Freeze” is  made by the candidate. If a candidate does not access the COAP or does not make a decision during a particular round of offers, then all offers made during that round will be considered as Rejected by the candidate. Nevertheless, in case, the candidate has given higher preferences, then the candidate will be considered for higher preferences, if any, in the subsequent round(s) of offers.

6 In the Decisive round of offers (last round of main rounds and all additional rounds), registered candidates will be provided with only in two options of “Accept and Freeze” or “Reject”.

6.1 Candidate should select the option “Accept and Freeze” if the candidate is willing to accept one of the offers. After clicking the ‘Accept and Freeze’ option, the candidate should click submit to confirm the submission of decision. Subsequently, the candidate should visit the respective Academic Institute’s Admission Portal or PSU’s Joining Portal and follow the procedure as per the instructions on the respective website. The admission / joining procedure should be completed within the due date.

6.2 Candidate selects the option “Reject”, if the candidate is not willing to accept any of the offers in the current round. Then all offers made during that round will be considered as Rejected. The candidate should click submit to confirm the submission of decision. If a candidate does not access COAP or does not make a decision during the final round of offers, then all offers made during that round, will be considered as
