2. In the Application Form, the applicant should indicate his preference for each KIP, in the order or priority. Ministry will attempt to allot the first preference of each applicant to the extent possible. If there are too many applicants for a specific KIP, the allotment of candidates will be on first-come-first serve basis and subject to fulfillment of all eligibility criteria.

3. Since organizing four KIPs together is an exercise which involved detailed coordination, deadline for accepting applications is 23rd October 2016.
