To ensure gender diversity, female candidates will be assigned a grace score of 30 as given in Table 3. Similarly, to ensure subject diversity, candidates having a non-engineering background at graduation will be assigned a grace score of 30 as indicated in Table 3.

The eligible candidates are then ranked on the basis of their actual Grand Total Score (Table 3) and top specified number will be called for the PA process above a required percentile.

The six new IIMs coordinating the PA process 2014, viz., Kashipur, Raipur, Ranchi, Rohtak, Trichy and Udaipur, are together likely to call candidates for the PA process about 10-12 times (or more if decided so later) their total number of seats. However, in case any of the six older IIMs (Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta, Indore, Kozhikode and Lucknow) are willing to share their PA scores with the six new IIMs, wherever IIM Rohtak’s (and other five new IIMs) shortlist is common with the sharing older IIMs, the common candidates will not be required to appear for PA process separately with IIM Rohtak (and five other new IIMs). The common candidates will be intimated in due course of time, on the names of older IIMs sharing PA scores with IIM Rohtak (and five other new IIMs).

B. Preparing Final Shortlisted Candidates (FSL)

A weight of 50% will be assigned to CAT Total Score (Scaled to 100). The following scores or weights are assigned during the PA process: PI and WA 30; and WE, PAP and any other component that may be included 20. Minimum cut off may be applied to PA components.

C. Offer Acceptance Fee & Withdrawal

A candidate receiving admission offer from IIM Rohtak (IIM-R) and Accepting the offer within the stipulated date needs to send along with Offer Acceptance (OA) an Offer Acceptance Amount (OAA) of Rs. 50,000/ -. A candidate can subsequently withdraw the OA within the withdrawal date specified in the Offer Letter (OL). In this case, OAA will be refunded after deducting 20% as processing charges. If a candidate registers for the programme, his/her OAA will be adjusted against Term I Fee. In the event of withdrawal from the Programme after registration, NO refund of OAA or Term Fee will be made.
