- Candidates allotted seats under the second round of AIQ/Deemed counselling can only opt for ‘Exit’ with forfeiture of the security amount, which means that if a candidate opts out of the counselling procedure, he/she will not get the security amount back.
- Candidates who are registered in the first round but didn’t get seats are eligible to participate in the second round.
- Registered candidates whose seats got cancelled after being allotted in the first round during document verification are also eligible to participate in the second round.
