Polytechnic Admission process is automated and conducted through a web based single window system. Application, design, development and implementation of the admission process are handled by Curriculum Development Centre by the in-house development team. The Centre has coordinated the admission process since 2008-2009. Initially a Desktop application was developed and installed in all the Nodal Polytechnic Colleges. Later the admission software was upgraded into a fully web based software in 2010-2011. The software is refined every year with new features and modules. This year we have incorporated the SSLC database with the admission software for getting SSLC marks and student details automatically. The software interfaces are user-friendly and simple, for ease of access to candidates. The continuous support, feedback and encouragement received from all stakeholders have helped us to improve the system tremendously. The software was designed by the Project Officer, SITTTR.
About 1.5 lakhs applications are received for over 12500 seats in the state every year. Separate Rank Lists and Select Lists are prepared for each of the 14 districts.
