The application fee for CCAT is Rs 600/-. Candidates may note that the CCAT fee once paid is not refundable.

After filling the online CCAT application form, the examination fee must be paid online. It can be paid using credit/debit cards through the payment gateway that will be opened upon clicking the 'Online' option of the 'Make Payment' step on the main menu of the application. Candidates are advised to follow the instructions/steps given on the payment gateway, and also print/keep the transaction details for their records.

On receiving the examination fee at C-DAC, the ‘Make Payment’ step on the main menu of the online application will be tick-marked, and the status of payment will be updated on the ‘Status Check’ menu. The pdf application form obtained by clicking the ‘View/Print Application Form’ on the main menu will now have the transaction details of the payment made. Candidates facing any issues during online payment may contact C-DAC ACTS Pune through phone (020-25503143) or email (actssupport@cdac.in).

C-DAC’s Online Diploma admission process has two counselling sessions and three rounds of seat allocations. Counselling means online filling of preferences of courses and training centres by candidates. During both the counselling sessions, candidates can give as many preferences of training centres and courses that meet their eligibility.

·      There are two rounds of seat allocations based on the first counselling. This means that using the course-centre preferences given by the candidates during the first choice filling, two rounds of seat allocations (Round 1 and Round 2) will be done. Further details of the first counselling and first/second rounds of seat allocations are given in Sections 15(f-j) of this Admission Booklet.

Depending on their CCAT ranks, candidates will be allocated seats strictly based on the order of preferences of courses and centres given by them during the counselling. If some candidates' ranks are not good enough to get them their top preferences in the first round of seat allocations, they may be offered their lower preferred courses/centres depending on their ranks. Such candidates may be allocated their higher-preferred course/centre in the second round of seat allocation, depending on their ranks. However, if candidates get their first preference in the first round of seat allocation itself, then that will be their final allocated seat and there will be no change for them in the second round of seat allocations. The seats allocated in the second round are final and there will be no further change in them.

·      Through the second counseling, candidates who have not got/confirmed admission are given one last chance to fill their preferences of courses and training centres online for the vacant seats that arise after the second round of admissions. The second counselling is scheduled after the payment of the first installment fee of the second round of seat allocation. The third round of seat allocation is based on the second counseling. The categories of candidates who are eligible to take part in the second counselling, and more details of the second counselling and third round of seat allocation, are given in Sections 15(k-m) of this Admission Booklet.

Based on the CCAT ranks, admissions to various courses at different training centres are offered in the order of preferences of courses and centres given by the candidate and the number of seats available for the courses at the particular centres. Therefore candidates must take utmost care while filling the order of preference of the courses and centres. Under any circumstance, a candidate will not be allocated another course/centre which was not given as a preference during the counselling stage.

Important Note: A candidate cannot join a lower preferred choice if he/she is allocated a higher preference in any round of seat allocation.

Set up in 1988, Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) is a scientific society of the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, Government of India, carrying out Research and Development (R&D) in IT, electronics and associated areas. Different thematic areas of C-DAC's research include high performance computing, grid and cloud computing, multilingual computing, professional electronics, software technologies, cyber security, health informatics, ubiquitous computing, and education & training.


As an institution for high-end R&D, C-DAC has been at the forefront of the IT revolution in the country, constantly building capacities in emerging technologies, and innovating and leveraging its expertise, calibre and skill sets to develop and deploy IT products and solutions for diverse sectors. It has resulted in the emergence of a high-quality intellectual resource base at C-DAC in the form of expert teams with specialised knowledge of various facets of advanced computing.


With such a rich resource base at its command, C-DAC set up the Advanced Computing Training School (ACTS) in 1993 to meet the ever-increasing skilled manpower requirements of the Information Communication Technologies (ICT) industry as well as supplement its intellectual resource base for cutting-edge research and development. Over the years C-DAC has designed and delivered various postgraduate and undergraduate degree and diploma programmes. In addition, C-DAC imparts ICT training to state and national governments and agencies, strategic sectors, corporate and industries, foreign countries and international students, based on specific requirements.


Presently C-DAC is offering Online Diploma courses through its training centres located in cities such as Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Karad, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Nagpur, Nashik, New Delhi, Noida, Patna, Pune, Silchar, and Thiruvananthapuram. Each year, thousands of students and professionals are trained at these centres, enhancing their knowledge-base and equipping them with the latest methodologies in advanced computing so as to make their mark in the ICT industry. So far more than 3 lakh students have passed out from C-DAC. Many of them are successful employees of multi-national and premier Indian ICT companies today, and many more have become booming entrepreneurs.


C-DAC has made strong presence globally by providing visibility and brand name for India through establishing state-of-the-art IT Training Centres and projects in many developing countries like Ghana, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Myanmar, Tanzania, Belarus, Armenia, Lesotho, Seychelles, Syria, Grenada, Dominican Republic, Vietnam, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Cambodia, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, Ecuador, Peru, Palestine, Bhutan, Costa Rica, Panama, Commonwealth of Dominica, Egypt, Morocco, Guyana, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Fiji, Nauru, Niue, Samoa, Cook Islands, Namibia, Sao Tome & Principe, Jordan, Argentina & Solomon Islands, in close association with Ministry of External Affairs and Ministry of Electronics & IT, Government of India.


C-DAC has been awarded as the 'Most Popular Training Institute in India' at the Electronics For You Awards.

The application fee for CCAT is Rs 600/-. Candidates may note that the CCAT fee once paid is not refundable.


After filling the online CCAT application form, the examination fee must be paid online. It can be paid using credit/debit cards through the payment gateway that will be opened upon clicking the 'Online' option of the 'Make Payment' step on the main menu of the application. Candidates are advised to follow the instructions/steps given on the payment gateway, and also print/keep the transaction details for their records.


On receiving the examination fee at C-DAC, the ‘Make Payment’ step on the main menu of the online application will be tick-marked, and the status of payment will be updated on the ‘Status Check’ menu. The pdf application form obtained by clicking the ‘View/Print Application Form’ on the main menu will now have the transaction details of the payment made. Candidates facing any issues during online payment may contact C-DAC ACTS Pune through phone (020-25503143) or email (actssupport@cdac.in).

Candidates can download their admit cards from C-DAC’s website during the dates mentioned under Important Dates. The venue, date and time of CCAT will be communicated to the candidates on the admit cards. Instructions for appearing CCAT will also be given on the admit card. Candidates must appear for CCAT on the date and time at the venue specified on the admit card. Application fee will not be refunded to candidates who are absent or coming late for CCAT.


No candidate will be permitted to appear for CCAT without a valid admit card. The admit card along with a photo identity proof must be presented to the CCAT officials/invigilators for verification at the time of the test.

Candidates will be provided ranks based on their marks in Sections AB and AB+C of CCAT. If a candidate appears for Sections AB and C by choosing Category III in the CCAT application form and qualifies in both, he/she will get two ranks – (i) based on the marks in Section AB, and (ii) based on the total marks obtained in Sections AB+C. If a candidate has applied for category III, but is not qualified in Section AB due to poor performance in it, he/she will not get any rank in Category II or III.


Candidates with the lowest 10% marks in any of the test papers (AB or C) will not be qualified for ranking. Even after the removal of the lowest 10% performers as stated above, if there exist candidates with zero or less than zero marks, then these candidates will also not be qualified for ranking. All qualified candidates will be awarded CCAT ranks.


Tie-Breaker Rule: If two or more candidates have acquired the same marks in Sections AB or AB+C, then the candidate having higher value in the ratio of ‘number of correct answers / number of attempted questions’ will be given the higher rank. Candidates who have the same value of this ratio, and having the same CCAT marks will be given the same CCAT rank.



Admissions to C-DAC’s Online Diploma courses at various training centres will be offered in the order of ranks obtained in CCAT and based on the preferences of courses and centres given by the candidates during online counselling. Only those candidates who are in the CCAT rank-list will be considered for admissions to C-DAC’s Online Diploma courses.


Rank-lists of April 2021 CCAT are only applicable for admission to the May 2021 batch of C-DAC’s Online Diploma courses. Candidates should note that mere appearance in CCAT or being in any of the rank-lists neither guarantees nor provides any automatic entitlement to admission. Qualified candidates have to apply for admission as per the prescribed procedure. 

C-DAC’s Online Diploma admission process has two counselling sessions and three rounds of seat allocations. Counselling means online filling of preferences of courses and training centres by candidates. During both the counselling sessions, candidates can give as many preferences of training centres and courses that meet their eligibility.


  • There are two rounds of seat allocations based on the first counselling. This means that using the course-centre preferences given by the candidates during the first choice filling, two rounds of seat allocations (Round 1 and Round 2) will be done. Further details of the first counselling and first/second rounds of seat allocations are given in Sections 15(f-j) of this Admission Booklet.

     

Depending on their CCAT ranks, candidates will be allocated seats strictly based on the order of preferences of courses and centres given by them during the counselling. If some candidates' ranks are not good enough to get them their top preferences in the first round of seat allocations, they may be offered their lower preferred courses/centres depending on their ranks. Such candidates may be allocated their higher-preferred course/centre in the second round of seat allocation, depending on their ranks. However, if candidates get their first preference in the first round of seat allocation itself, then that will be their final allocated seat and there will be no change for them in the second round of seat allocations. The seats allocated in the second round are final and there will be no further change in them.


  • Through the second counseling, candidates who have not got/confirmed admission are given one last chance to fill their preferences of courses and training centres online for the vacant seats that arise after the second round of admissions. The second counselling is scheduled after the payment of the first installment fee of the second round of seat allocation. The third round of seat allocation is based on the second counseling. The categories of candidates who are eligible to take part in the second counselling, and more details of the second counselling and third round of seat allocation, are given in Sections 15(k-m) of this Admission Booklet.

Based on the CCAT ranks, admissions to various courses at different training centres are offered in the order of preferences of courses and centres given by the candidate and the number of seats available for the courses at the particular centres. Therefore candidates must take utmost care while filling the order of preference of the courses and centres. Under any circumstance, a candidate will not be allocated another course/centre which was not given as a preference during the counselling stage.

Important Note: A candidate cannot join a lower preferred choice if he/she is allocated a higher preference in any round of seat allocation.


11.1 Course Fee

The course fee of e-DAC, e-DMC, e-DITISS, e-DASSD and e-DESD is Rs. 50,000/- + Goods & Services Tax (GST) on it applicable at the time of payments (April/May 2021). GST in March 2021 is 18%.

The computer-based CCAT for admission to C-DAC’s May 2021 batch of Online Diploma courses will be conducted on two dates, viz., 3 and 4 April 2021 in various cities across India.

In order to be considered for admission to a desired course, a candidate’s name must appear in the CCAT rank-list.


(f)

Online Selection of Courses and Centres (1st Counselling)

14-17 April 2021


During these dates, candidates are required to give (online) their order of preferences of courses and training centres by logging in on the C-DAC website using their form number and password. Depending on their CCAT ranks, candidates will be allocated seats strictly based on their order of preferences of courses and centres. Online selection of courses/centres will close on 17 April 2021. Candidates facing any issues during online selection of course/centre may contact C-DAC Mumbai through phone (022-27565308/ 26703251) or e-mail (course-enquiry@cdac.in).


The list of courses offered and the maximum number of seats available at all training centres of C-DAC are given in Table 4 of this Admission Booklet. During counselling, a candidate may give as many course-centre preferences as desired. Rank-wise seat allocation will be done based on these preferences and the availability of seats. Under any circumstance, a candidate will not be allocated another course/centre which was not given as a preference during the counselling stage.


Important Note: Candidates should verify the eligibility of each course before opting for it during choice filling. It will be the responsibility of candidates to prove that they satisfy the minimum eligibility requirements of the courses for which they are seeking admission.


After choosing the preferred courses and centres in the Choice Filling software, candidates should save their preferences. The unsaved preference list will be shown in red background and will be lost upon logging out without saving. The saved preference list can be modified (if required) and again saved by the candidate till 17 April 2021. These course-centre preferences will be considered in the seat allocation process in their order of preferences. Candidates will have the option to print the list of course-centre preferences saved by them.


Candidates can add or delete preferences and also change their order of preferences until 17 April 2021. The last-saved course-centre preferences will be considered as final and a candidate cannot opt for a lower preferred choice if he/she is allocated a higher preference in any round of seat allocation.


Important Notes:

(i)    The ORDER of preferences of courses/centres is very important, as seat allocations will happen strictly as per the order given by the candidates and their CCAT ranks.

(ii) If a candidate has not given preference for a particular course or a centre during the choice filling stage, he/she will not be considered for this particular course/centre in any further admission process.

(iii)  After the last date of choice filling, there is no provision for a candidate to edit/add/delete any preferences, even for the second round of seat allocations.


(g)

Declaration of First Round of Seat Allocation

19 April 2021


The course and centre allocated to the candidates are published online at 5 pm on 19 April 2021. Admissions to various courses at different training centres are offered in the order of CCAT ranks and preferences of courses and centres given by the candidate and the number of seats available for the courses at the particular centres. If some candidates' ranks are not good enough to get them their top preferences, they may be offered their lower preferred courses/centres depending on their ranks. Such candidates may be allocated their higher-preferred course/centre in the second round of seat allocation, depending on their ranks.


Candidates will get to know the course/centre allocated to them by logging in on the C-DAC web site. All the seat-allocated candidates will also receive an e-mail notification. Once a candidate is allocated a centre, no manual request for transfer to another centre may be considered at any stage. Seat allocation will happen only as per the order of preferences already given by the candidates.


 (h)

Last date of payment of first installment course fee for candidates allocated seats through the first round

23 April 2021           (till 5 pm)


Once a seat is offered to a candidate, he/she must pay the first installment fee of Rs. 10,000/- + GST as applicable in April 2021 as a token amount to confirm the admission. The mode of payment of fee is explained in the section Payment of Course Fee. Online payment of first installment course fee should be strictly done before 5 pm on 23 April 2021. Delays due to any reason are not acceptable.

Candidates who have been offered seats through the first round of seat allocation, but have not paid the first installment by 5 pm on 23 April 2021 will not be considered for the second round of seat allocation. It will be assumed that these candidates do not want to take admission and their names will be removed from the second round of seat allocation processing. Therefore, in order to be considered for the second round of allocation, candidates are advised to pay the first installment and confirm their admission, even if the course/centre allocated in the first round is not their top preference. It may happen that the candidate may be allocated a higher-preferred course/centre in the second round of seat allocation.
