Whereas, the West Bengal Joint Entrance Examinations Board (WBJEEB), vide Notification No. WBE/CN-055-16 dated 24.08.2016 has already published the necessary Guidelines for admission to 2nd Year (3rd Semester) of under graduate level Engineering & Technology Programmes in the academic year 2016-17 through the State Common Entrance Examination for the said program (i.e. JELET-2016).


Whereas, in the said Guidelines the West Bengal Joint Entrance Examinations Board (WBJEEB) has already notified necessary venue, period of counseling, application procedure, counseling fee, eligibility criteria, reservation policy as well as other relevant information towards admission in 2nd Year (3rd Semester) of under graduate level Engineering & Technology Programmes in the academic year 2016-17.


Whereas in the said guidelines it has been mentioned that candidates will be required to take admission to the allotted University/ Institutes within five days from the date of allotment.


Whereas it has been observed that some seats in the second year level are still vacant after the completion of such allotment and admission process in different participating Universities and Institutes of the State offering under graduate level Engineering & Technology programmes.


Now, therefore it is clarified that on completion of the centralized counseling and admission process, the participating Universities and Institutes of the State may pursue the admission procedure in the Under graduate level Engineering & Technology Programmes in the Universities and Institutes as notified here under:

1. The seats remaining vacant in the second year level will be open for admission through decentralized counseling for diploma holder students in Engineering & Technology programmes as well as B.Sc. passed students following the same guidelines in terms of eligibility criteria for different Universities and Institutes.

2. The participating Universities and Institutes willing to admit students through such decentralized counseling process shall have to follow a complete transparent admission procedure inviting application from the intending diploma holder students in Engineering & Technology Programmes from AICTE approved Institutions as well as B.Sc. passed students from UGC Recognized institutions by posting necessary notice, as against declared vacancy position by the University/ Institutes in respect of the said programmes, in their respective Notice Board and/or the Institutional website.

3. The candidates will be offered the said vacant seats in the following order of preference:

a) Candidates with JELET-2016 Rank who are otherwise eligible for admission to 2nd year of under graduate level programmes in Engineering & Technology courses as per the Norms and Guidelines provided by the AICTE will be given the first preference. Admission must be made strictly on merit and preference.

b) Candidates with diploma in Engineering & Technology from AICTE approved institutions who are otherwise eligible for admission under the scheme, will be given the second preference.

c) Candidates with B.Sc. degree from UGC Recognized Institutions who are otherwise eligible for admission under the scheme, will be given the next preference.

4. For the candidates under the category 3(a) and (b) the list of equivalent disciplines as given hereunder has to be followed.
