ICAR AIEEA UG 2017 Counselling
I. Method of Selection and Admission through Counseling
ICAR AIEEA UG Method of Selection
The candidate declared / notified as qualified for ICAR AIEEA UG counseling, based on the merit – rank, shall report for counseling as per Counseling schedule. Candidate shall forfeit the claim for admission if he / she, in – person or through Authorized representative, does not report for counseling. Candidate who has not been declared / notified as qualified for counseling, shall not be considered for admission on ICAR seats in any Agricultural University at any stage.
Candidate will be recommended for admission in the subject / degree program of choice in the Agricultural Universities on the basis of merit in the ICAR UG entrance examination and availability of seats at his / her merit – rank during counseling.
List of original documents with self – attested photocopies, photographs to be produced at the time of counseling is as under :
- All certificates and mark sheets / grade reports, in original related to Class X and XII, Transfer Certificate / School Leaving Certificate, Character Certificate from the School last attended.
- In case of candidates from SC, ST and non – creamy layer of OBC categories, Original Certificate as per
- Central Government requirements and issued by Competent Authority
- Medical Certificate in case of Physically Handicapped ( PH ) candidates issued by Medical Officer of any Government Hospital with description of the kind and the degree of disability.
- In case the Date of Birth is not mentioned in Class X Certificate, Date of Birth ( DOB ) Certificate.
- e- Admit Card, counseling call/invitation letter from ICARin original.
- Three recent and clear passport size colour photographs same as pasted on the Application Form.
- Domicile certificate.
- Authority letter / undertaking in the prescribed format, if the candidate is unable to attend the counseling personally.
Admission through ICAR UG Entrance Exam Counseling
The candidates qualified for counseling and called for consideration for provisional admission to the Agricultural Universities would be generally larger than the number of seats available, provided they have achieved a minimum of 50% marks for General and UPS categories and a minimum of 40% marks for SC / ST / PH categories in the Entrance examination. For OBC, it will be as per Supreme Court directives in this regard. The competent authority may relax the minimum qualifying marks in case the required number of candidates to be called for counseling are not available.
The candidate, invited for counseling, will have to fill a prescribed Counseling Form at the time of counseling. Candidate should give his/her options for choice of subject / degree program and University in order of preference and present the same at the counseling desk when his / her name and rank is announced through Microphone / Public Address System.
The candidate or authorized representative called for counseling ( personal appearance ) should bring the counseling intimation letter issued / downloaded from ICAR website, Admit Card, All Original Certificates with Mark – sheets, SC / ST / PH / UPS / OBC Category Certificate etc. in original for verification and submission. An amount of 2,000/- ( Rupees Two Thousand only ) in Cash, should also be brought as part admission fee to be deposited with the Registrar of the allotted university.
Authorized representative should also bring the duly filled-in Authority Letter, attested by competent authority. One individual shall not act as representative for more than two candidates.
Candidate, not fulfilling the eligibility condition (s) at the time of counseling, will forfeit claim for admission and will not be considered for seat allocation. Candidature in such cases shall be rejected summarily. No correspondence shall be entertained thereafter in this regard.
In view of the limited time availability for counseling at the counseling desk, each candidate is advised to keep a ready list of options, in case the filled in options of the candidate have been exhausted by the time candidate reaches the counseling desk. Candidate taking more time at the counseling desk may be asked to come at the end of the queue so that time of the remaining candidates is not wasted. In that case, the candidate shall lose claim of seat at his / her merit – rank.
In case, all seats in a subject at the University opted for, are exhausted by the time candidate reaches counseling desk, he / she shall have the option to provide fresh choices of subject / university, wherever the seat is available. The candidate shall have no claim for change of subject/University thereafter.
Against total number of ICAR seats available for a particular degree program in a university, not more than 40% of ICAR seats from one State would be allocated to any one university in that subject under a particular category. While computing 40% number, mathematical method of rounding to the nearest integer would be adopted except where there is only one seat, in which case, the whole seat would be allocated.
Candidate reporting late for counseling beyond the time specified on the specified counseling date, may be considered for admission on the counseling date, subject to valid / acceptable reason for late reporting, only out of the subjects & Universities available at the time of his / her actual counseling. He / she will lose any claim for seat at his / her merit-rank due to – late reporting.
The fact that a candidate or his / her representative has appeared for Counseling, will not ensure admission unless a seat at the rank of the candidate for Counseling is available and he / she meets all eligibility requirements.
It should be noted carefully that ICAR allocates the University, whereas the choice of College within the University allotted shall be regulated by the University itself. Candidate may not approach ICAR, thereafter, for any specific College within the allotted University.
xii) In case a candidate has been allotted a university and subject at the time of counseling and the same has been accepted by the candidate, any request for change / transfer of subject / university thereafter, will not be entertained by ICAR. The candidate, once admitted in a degree program as per his / her merit – rank and availability of seat at the time of counseling, will not stake claim for change of subject / University later on after his / her counseling is over.
All candidates or their authorized representatives reporting for Counseling will be required to submit original certificates and mark sheets to the Registrar of the allotted University, otherwise admission may not be granted. All original certificates submitted by the candidates may be sent to their respective Boards for verification. In case a candidate wishes to withdraw the original certificates after the admission, he / she shall directly request the allotted University for the same.
If any candidate fails to deposit the part admission fee and original certificates as required, the admission would not be granted and candidate would forfeit his / her claim for admission.
In case any particular Board is not recognized or has been derecognized by some university, ICAR will not be responsible for admitting students of that Board in the universities not willing to admit such candidates.
Filling of Vacant Seats after the ICAR Counseling
ICAR seats, if remain vacant, even after filling up with waitlisted candidates, shall automatically stand released to the Agricultural University concerned for filling up at their level and as per the procedure in vogue by the respective university. These seats will no more be called as ICAR seats and will be treated as university seats. Once the counseling / admission process, including the waitlisted candidates, is over, filling up of any subsequent vacancies created due to non reporting of candidates or any other reason, shall not be the responsibility of ICAR. No correspondence in this regard will be entertained either from the universities or from any candidate.
The candidate admitted provisionally to an Agricultural University through ICAR examination, shall have to report to the concerned Agricultural University on the date of registration, as notified by the concerned University. The candidate is, therefore, advised to be in constant touch with the University allotted. Date of joining / registration at the university must be enquired from the university official present during the counseling and carefully noted.
No correspondence from the candidates / guardians / parents will be entertained for seeking permission for late registration / admission in the universities or issuing any direction in this regard.
