What are the Lock, Upgrade and Withdrawal options?

Lock – The ‘Lock’ option confirms admission of the candidate to the allotted NLU. After exercising this option, the candidate shall not be considered for further upgrade to any other NLU of choice in case of any vacancy arising at subsequent stage during counselling process.

Upgrade – This option offers you an opportunity to upgrade your allotted seat to a NLU of higher preference via subsequent allotment list. Therefore the option helps the candidate in securing a seat without locking it for a certain NLU, rather with a chance of upgrading it to the NLU of next higher preference in the next allotment rounds.

Withdrawal – Exercising this option, a candidate can withdraw his candidature from the admission process. In such case, the candidate will forfeit the right to be considered eligible for admissions and therefore the counselling committee will refund the remaining amount paid by the candidate against the counselling fee after deducting a certain amount from the same.
