The final admission is only confirmed after a candidate has paid the required admission fee. Fee payment must be completed before the deadline specified by the college. In case a candidate withdraws from the admission process or fails to complete the fee payment before the deadline, their seat will be transferred to a Wait Listed candidate, who will then be asked to confirm admission.
