Centralized Counselling for M.Tech./ M.Plan (CCMT) is an admission process for providing a convenient platform for the students to apply for M.Tech./M.Plan programmes, based on their GATE score of year 2012 or 2013, in various NITs across the country and some Centrally Funded Technical Institutions such as ABV-IIITM Gwalior, IIITDM Jabalpur, National Institute of Foundry and Forge Technology Ranchi and Sant Longowal Institute of Engineering and Technology Longowal. This centralized system has replaced the older system, in which a student had to apply to various institutes and then visit these institutes individually to appear for interview/counselling. This system used to cause lot of difficulties to students such as multiple applications, travelling long distances to various institutes across the country for their respective admission process and missing some institutes due to common admission dates. Centralized counselling provided a system wherein the students can fill one online application from their homes and apply to all the programmes of all participating institutions to which they were eligible. Overall convenience of students has increased enormously due to centralized counselling and simplified their efforts tremendously.
CCMT was successfully organized by MNIT Jaipur for twenty participating NITs in 2012. This year also, CCMT is being organized by MNIT Jaipur with two more NITs, two IIITs, and two other centrally funded technical institutions participating in centralized counselling, thus extending more opportunities to aspiring students.
