The Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) is expected to declare the first allotment results in the special round of counselling for admission into engineering courses shortly on its official website

The Board had earlier confirmed the date for allocation of seats under the special rounds in an official notification.

It is to be noted here that only those candidates will be considered for seat allocation who have properly registered themselves, submitted the application fees and locked their choices.

The board was expected to release the allotment results at around 5 pm on Friday, however, the link for allotment list is not yet up on the website.

A report in Careers 360 had earlier pointed out that the CSAB had extended the registration, fee payment and choice locking last date and time, hence the allotment of seats could get delayed.

Under the changed schedule, the report added, candidates were allowed to register for CSAB special round 2020 till 4 pm on 20 November, and the choice locking could be done till 5 pm on 20 November.
