5. Counseling Programme for allotment of candidates:

For the academic session of 2012~13, the entire Counseling process shall be done through “Online e-Counseling mode” to be conducted by the WBJEEB, in the following manner:

(i) Explanation of the process of “Online e-Counseling”: The entire counseling process shall be conducted Online, i.e. a candidate having rank (GMR) in the merit list of JEM – 2012 and/or rank (AIR) in the merit list of AIEEE – 2012 (in separate B. Arch list for candidates willing to admit in B. Arch course); will be required to register and get oneself allotted a seat in any of the participating

Engineering & Technological institutes in the State of West Bengal, as per availability and maintaining inter – se merit thereof, through the website of the WBJEEB and using “e-Counseling” software developed, implemented and maintained by the National Informatics Centre (NIC), Department of Electronics & Information Technology under Ministry of Communications & Information Technology, Government of India. Mutatis mutandis anything whatsoever stated in these guidelines regarding Online e-Counseling; the existing provisions of the Government of India
and/or Government of West Bengal with regards to reservation of seats, eligibility criterion, domicile criterion and other pre – requisites, shall
remain unchanged.

(ii) Steps of “Online Counseling”: Online Counseling shall consist of Registration Process, Choice – filling & Choice – locking Process and three (3) rounds. Therein;

(a). The Registration Process shall require each and every eligible candidate (as per foregoing provisions) to register through filling – up of Specific form in the website of the WBJEEB (i.e. http://wbjeeb.nic.in/) within the Specified time period i.e. w.e.f. 11th June, 2012 to 29th June, 2012, inclusive of both days. The said candidate shall be required to deposit requisite FEE amounting Rs. 500/- (Rupees five hundred only) in any of the CBS branches of the UBI in the account of the WBJEEB mentioning the JEM~2012 and/or AIEEE~2012 rank; details of which shall be made available in the website of the WBJEEB and in the public advertisements to be brought out by the WBJEEB for this Online e-Counseling process. The candidate while completing the web based registration process shall be required to fill up the Bank Receipt Number and later shall be required to show the physical receipt during Admission Process at the Reporting Centre and/or when asked for. The District level Nodal Officer under the aegis of the concerned District Magistrate would supervise, monitor and liaise with the Board as well as would co-ordinate with the respective Person in Charge of the Reporting Centre and with BDO, SDO and District level administrative officials for
smooth conduct of the entire e-Counseling process.

All eligible candidates are required to register ONLINE through Internet from places convenient to them. In addition, since this procedure is being introduced for the first time, Help Centres at Block, Sub Division and District levels are being set up with the assistance of the District authorities which may be used by the candidates for availing critical support required during registration and choice-filling process. The candidates shall not be allowed to change any of the existing data recorded and archived in the WBJEEB database (i.e. details related to date
of birth, religion, category, TFW etc. as they have already been shown their data during result publication now may approach the Board for necessary correction(s), if any). Besides the candidates shall be asked whether they have qualified NATA examination, if they want to become eligible for admission in B. Arch course along with academic and requisite details for completion of Registration Process;

(b). The Choice – filling Process shall require all such validly registered candidates to fill up their choices i.e. their preferred institute vis-à-vis
stream of study (viz. abc engineering & technology institute and xyz engineering stream therein) with specification of their category to be given
additional advantage (viz. SC or ST or PC or Minority or TFW etc.) . In case of any further change required, the candidate may approach the Board directly; Even if any candidate registers having both JEM~2012 and AIEEE~2012 ranks; one can only provide/fill a single set of choices. Based on the respective rank vis-à-vis choices and availability of seats in respective category; a single allotment would occur without violating merit and preference of choice given by the same. It is imperative on the part of the candidate to save and exit the choices filled by one so that one‟s preference is locked and does not get time-barred due to lack of doing so. In order to prevent any such instance, the Chairman of the
WBJEEB shall remain authorised to centrally sign into the database after the window-period of such registration and choice-filling i.e. after 5 pm on 29th June, 2012 by using a digitally signatured, authenticated and one-timepass- key and lock all such preferences last entered and modified by all such candidates, in greater interest of candidates;

(c). The first round shall then try and allocate seats to all such validly registered and choice-given candidates against available vacancies, as per Seat Matrix received from the DTE, West Bengal and as per one‟s choice/preference given thereof maintaining inter – se merit amongst themselves. The allocation process shall take into effect the reservation criterion of all categories (i.e. for SC, ST, PC, TFW, Minority, etc.) and for both AIEEE and WBJEEB, the allocation in the first round shall be done simultaneously out of their respective quantum of seats. Counseling and allotment of students for the Tuition Fee Waiver (TFW) Scheme of AICTE shall be conducted simultaneously. This is applicable only for all Merit Listed candidates under JEM~2012.

(d). As soon as the first round of iteration of the software gives rise to allocation of seat vis-à-vis candidate; the list generated thereby shall be published online, displayed on the WBJEEB‟s website as mentioned hereinbefore and posted on the respective webpage of the candidate, to be accessed by the candidate through one‟s secured user-id & password. If the candidate could provide one‟s mobile number and/or e-mail address, details of allocation would be sent to the same electronically;

(e). The candidate so allocated shall be required to report to any of the remotely located Reporting Centres (RC) across the State within the specified time period w.e.f. 2nd July, 2012 to 08th July, 2012. In case, any of the candidates so eligible yet remains unable to attend any of such RCs within the aforementioned window-period after first-round for whatsoever reason it may be; the respective allocation of seat shall stand cancelled and the candidature of the said candidate shall not be considered in subsequent rounds of Online e-Counseling thereafter. The details of such RCs so identified in consultation with this Department and the list is annexed with this document, shall be published by the WBJEEB in due course and the Allocation Certificate so generated after first round of allocation by the software through web-based application shall bear such list of RCs which shall be allowed to be downloaded and printed seamlessly;

(f). On attending the RC, a candidate shall be required to submit one‟s downloaded and printed Merit Rank details for JEM and/or AIEEE~2012 & Allocation Certificate from WBJEEB website along with Admit Card & Receipt of Online Counseling Registration Fee. Thereafter the original testimonials of the allotted candidate shall be verified physically. If every document conforms to the submission of the candidate given during
Registration and/or earlier; allocation to the said student shall be deemed to be proper. Subsequently, the candidate shall be required to deposit one-time admission and associated fees amounting Rs. 4000/- for candidates allotted under TFW, Rs. 5000/- for six (6) Government Engineering Colleges and nine

(9) Universities (Engineering & Technology Departments therein) and Rs. 40000/- for all other self – financed Engineering & Technology Institutes, through a crossed Bank Demand Draft drawn in favour of WBJEEB, details of which shall be publicized as enumerated hereinbefore for similar instances.

(g). If any candidate wants to avail or not avail the opportunity of up-gradation of his already allotted seat; one shall have to fill a declaration form during reporting at the RC. It goes without saying that the candidate‟s choice of availing or not availing of Up-gradation facility is a discretionary option in the hands of the candidate and the WBJEEB shall have no role to play in this regard. Neither the Board could allow a candidate to exercise this option nor could it deny. But once exercised, the candidate can revert from YES Upgradation to NO Up-gradation during the subsequent 2nd and 3rd round of allotment being satisfied with the level of Up-gradation acquired by one but will be restricted from exercising change from NO Up-gradation to YES Upgradation;

(h). In case, a candidate fails to turn up at the RC, fails to show relevant original documents during physical verification at the RC, fails to
substantiate one‟s claim vis-à-vis one‟s earlier submissions in any manner whatsoever; the WBJEEB shall issue an Allotment Cancellation Certificate to the said candidate at the said RC through the Board‟s authorised representative. Once such certificate is issued, the said candidate shall not be considered during subsequent rounds of Online e-Counseling.

(A). For candidates belonging to SC, ST, PH, Minority Category or availing benefits of TFW, additional benefits would be scrapped if relevant
testimonials are not submitted and these candidates would be considered for the next round of allocation of seats after cancellation of earlier

***** In this respect it should be clarified that the candidates falling under 5(ii)(h)(A) above, might be allotted a seat lower than a higher ranked
candidate as one had availed the earlier allotment with a benefit to which one had no supporting documents and the allotment process under e-
Counseling is based on the submissions made by the candidate online subject to verification to be made after allotment. Hence, the onus of such meritviolation would be on such candidates and the WBJEEB would in no way be held responsible for such;

(i). After a candidate‟s successful verification at the RC and deposition of requisite fees therein; a Provisional Allotment Certificate shall be issued to the respective candidate with copy to the DTE, WB; Vice Chancellor and

Registrar of the concerned University; Principal of the allotted College and Secretary of the Association for Professional Academic Institutes (APAI);

(j). A candidate on being allotted a seat by the RC after depositing required fees and being extended the Provisional Allotment Letter showing details of allotted college/institute along with provision of Up-gradation exercised or not etc. may like to cancel one‟s allotment of seat. If the said seat so chosen to be cancelled is available for iteration during subsequent rounds of allocation amongst remaining validly registered candidates, the entire fee would be refunded by the WBJEEB lest penal deductions would be made by the Board up to an extent of 50% if cancelled after 3rd round of allocation and 100% if cancelled after the final vacancy is generated after 25th July, 2012
when the e-Counseling process is over;

(k). The vacancy generated out of candidates who don‟t turn up at the RC or chose to cancel the allocation made to one or otherwise found ineligible as per foregoing clauses would be considered VACANCY generated out of 1st round of counseling after the last date of Reporting i.e. on 08th of July, 2012;

(l). Once the vacancy status arising out of non-reporting at the RC, Cancellation at the RC, and/or any such reason, as clarified in the foregoing provisions, as the case may be; the cumulative vacancy arrived at thereof shall once again be verified with the existing database. Thereafter the software shall be iterated for the second time and allotment of seats vis-à-vis candidates shall be made during this Second Round of Seat Allotment.

(m). The report in the form of list so generated thereof; shall be used for similar actions alike (e) to (k) with dates of reporting at the RC after 2nd Round will be 12th July to 14th July, 2012 leading on to the eve of Third Round;

(n). Now the residue of vacancy available in the AIEEE quota shall be merged with General quota of residue of vacancy under JEM quota, residue vacancy available in the PC quota under JEM shall be merged with General quota of JEM, firstly residue of vacancy in ST quota under JEM shall be merged with that of SC quota of JEM and thereafter the residue of vacancy of augmented SC quota shall be merged with the General quota under JEM, similarly, upgradation shall continue until such iteration of the software during this Third Round of Counseling; whereby no candidate of inter-se lower merit is placed in higher preference than that of higher merit, if the latter has exercised the option of Up-gradation save and except in cases as enumerated under 5(ii)(h)(A) above. Moreover, the Up-graded candidates shall be intimated at the end of each round of allotment as per usual process mentioned hereinbefore. Therefore, such candidate shall have the option to
stop up-gradation process in between as a change of intent as depicted under 5(ii)(g) above;

(o). The Online e-Counseling Process shall thereafter go onto the Third Round of iteration of the e-Counseling software. Thereafter, similar admission procedure shall follow during operation of Reporting Centres w.e.f. 23rd to 25th of July, 2012. Freshly allotted candidates shall attend the Reporting Centres except for those candidates who have already exercised the facility of Up-gradation. Those candidates whose option for Up-gradation shall fetch an allotment of higher preference exercised by them; shall have to report to the final allotted institute and their Final Allocation Letter shall have these details enumerated specifically so that they are allowed to join classes in the Up-graded institute. It is imperative to mention that the candidate so Upgraded shall not have the right to refuse such offer of Up-gradation because that will lead to creation of vacancy in such institutes which might not have been offered to other candidates due to such exercise of Up-gradation option;

(p). Thereafter the candidates so allotted with the final allotment showing in their respective webpage and informed electronically shall report to the said finally allotted institutes/colleges/departments of universities as the case may be, between 26th and 31st of July, 2012.

***Prior approval from the concerned authorities for conversion of such seats from PC to General, ST to SC and SC to General etc. category must be taken in this regard. A letter should also be issued to the BCW Department by the CSC (E&T) with a copy of these Guidelines, requesting them to send competent authorities at the Board Office before 3rd round of counseling i.e. specifically on 17th and 18th of July, 2012 enabling such conversion as and when required.

(iv) The e-Counseling software will also include functions to be undertaken by all the Participating Institutes (PI) in the counseling process i.e. all the E&T institutes getting seat-allocation through this counseling process. After the candidates report to their respective finally allotted institute during 26th and 31st July, 2012; the respective PI would log on to this web-based application online and upload the reporting details. Therefore after 31st July, 2012, the Board shall be having the details of vacancy as it stands after the entire e-Counseling process is over;

(v) Thereafter the WBJEEB shall communicate the complete counseling and allotment Status to the State Govt. in the Higher Education Department; the Director of Technical Education, Govt. of West Bengal; the Registrar, West Bengal University of Technology and other Universities, Institutes concerned electronically as well as manually forthwith.

(vi) Procedures, as already have been laid down against para 4 (ii) for allotment of seats to Minority Institutions, shall be followed during Online e-Counseling – 2012 and allotment of students under Minority Category. The WBJEEB shall set necessary programme to complete the JELET Counseling for admission to 2nd Year Engineering & Technology Courses through the Lateral Entry Scheme so that vacant seats of JEM-2012 after normal counseling could be awarded to the willing and successful candidates from JELET merit-list. This process shall be done manually and through Central Counseling mode, alike last year.
