Padma Angmo, Secretary, Higher Education, Ladakh, explained that due to the limited number of institutions offering these professional courses in these regions, the Government of India is implementing this program.

The Central Seat Allocation Board-North Eastern States and Some of Union Territories (CSAB NEUT-2024) will conduct two rounds of seat allotment. Candidates can register from June 17 to 24, select and prioritize courses online from June 18, and lock their choices by July 1.

The first round of allotment will take place on July 8, followed by the second round on July 22. A ‘spot round’ will be conducted by the respective Directorate of Technical Education (DTEs) of participating North-Eastern states and UTs.

The Secretary advised Ladakhi candidates and their parents to regularly visit the CSAB-2024 website for updates and download the complete brochure containing the schedule of events, available seats, and related information.

To ensure maximum participation of eligible students with transparency, the Ministry of Education has decided to conduct seat allotment through a Centralised Seat Allotment Board (CSAB) for North-Eastern States and Union Territories (NEUT).

The Government of India has assigned the National Institute of Technology Karnataka (NITK) Surathkal to conduct online counselling for all NE states and UTs under the chairmanship of Director, NITK Surathkal.

CSAB NEUT-2024 will allocate seats based on JEE (Main)-2024 scores for engineering/technology and architecture courses.

Pharmacy course allotment will be based on aggregate percentage of marks obtained in class XII.

Seat reservations for different categories will follow the rules of each state and UT. Candidates with 45 per cent (GEN/EWS/OBC-NCL) or 40 per cent (SC/ST/PwD) in class XII (or equivalent) exams are eligible for counselling.
