Govt. of India reserves a few seats in Engineering/Technology/Architecture/Pharmacy courses in AICTE approved institutes across the country. These are for students belonging to 12 North East States and UTs namely Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Manipur, Nagaland, Sikkim, Tripura, Dadar & Nagar Haveli, Daman & Diu, Andaman & Nicobar Islands and Lakshadweep. This is because these states and UTs do not have engineering colleges/polytechnics or have lack of facilities for education in specific field of technical education and for certain categories including foreign students.

To have the maximum possible participation of eligible students, MHRD has taken a decision of conducting seat allotment on such seats through a Centralized Seat Allotment Board for North Eastern States and Union Territories (CSAB NEUT).
