India is a vast country with widely diverse language and culture. The marking system of our educational program is as wide-ranging as our language and culture.
It is some time unfair to rank the students, based only on their marks, particularly when they are coming from different states and on top of that with
various educational systems. At the same time it is too much of a tasking to the students to appear for different examination for admission into the
same program. Due to this in the year 2015, most NITs having two year M.Sc. program and some CFTIs came up with the idea of Centralized Counseling in
the name of CCMN (Centralized Counseling for M. Sc./M. Sc(Tech) admissions to NITs and CFTIs) to admit eligible candidates.
Admission to M. Sc/M. Sc(Tech) Programme by CCMN started in the year 2015 with the participation of 13 NITs and 02 CFTIs and was organized by
National Institute of Technology Rourkela. Down the year, CCMN 2016 took its shape in the present form with developments and optimization in manifolds.
CCMN 2016 had an increase of 02 more institutes from NITs and the total Participating Institutes (PIs) were 17 which include 15 NITs and 02 CFTIs.
NIT Calicut & MNNIT Allahabad was the new welcome.
CCMN 2015 & CCMN 2016 were unique in its nature, where the entire process of admission was done through online counseling. As a result,
the candidate can complete the entire process of admission online and report to the admitting institute only at the time of start of fresh session.
Unlike CCMN 2015, candidates who participated in CCMN 2016 had no trouble of travelling to the nearest PI for Surrender which was even made
Online with OTP confirmation. Similarly, CCMN 2017 was hosted successfully with participation from 16 NITs and 02 CFTIs.
Upon decision by all Directors of NITs & CFTIs, Counseling for admission to M. Sc/M. Sc(Tech) programme by CCMN 2018 is organized for the 4th time
by National Institute of Technology Rourkela with participation from 18 NITs and 02 CFTIs. We believe with this procedure, it will make the admission
process to M. Sc/M. Sc(Tech) progarammes of NITs and CFTIs completely hassle free to the students.
CCMN 2018 is glad to announce about the participation of 22 institutes (20 NITs and 2 CFTIs) for online counseling and admission to M.Sc/M. Sc(Tech)
programmes and the list of participating Institutes (PI) is as follows:

“All candidates wishing to take admission at NITs/CFTIs for any M. Sc/M. Sc (Tech) programmes should go through the Centralized Counselling procedure
followed by CCMN 2018, organized by National Institute of Technology, Rourkela only.”
It is to be noted here that, the applications and admissions for IISc/IITs does not have any bearing and link to the application and admission
process for NITs and CFTIs by CCMN 2018.
Online application process for CCMN 2018 will commence from (Will be updated).
At this juncture CCMN 2018, take this opportunity to thank all participating institutes for their participation in CCMN counseling and agreeing to a
common eligibility criterion for admission. CCMN 2018 hope in future more institutes will extend their participation in CCMN.
CCMN 2018 wishes all JAM aspirants for an enthusiastic career!
