This quota will be supernumerary – over and above the original Home State Quota of each institute.

Candidates belonging to these UTs are also eligible for the seats in NITs other than their “Home State” under “Other State” quota.

Quotas/Reservations in Other Central Institutes: In CFTIs, IIITs and SFTIs, the seats are allocated on the basis of HS/OS/All India Quota, as applicable.
