Applicants who have been assessed as having at least 40% impairment regardless of the type of disability will be provided with a fee concession only if they meet this requirement. As part of the application process, the candidate must also submit the certification to the allotted institute.

To be considered for admission to MTech programs at IITs, the candidate will need to register separately through COAP. To gain admission into NITs, IIITs, and some CFTIs, candidates will need to participate in the Centralized Counselling for MTech.
