Published on : 24th May 2019 Author : Himanshu Basant Bhatt
Engineering is lot more than a field of study; it is part of our life. It is the most sought-after career option after completing the 10+2 level of education. It has been observed that many students fail to clear the qualifying entrance exam; consequently, failing to grab a seat in their preferred engineering colleges. However, they can, too, get direct admission in B.Tech course. In this article, we have compiled all the possibilities that an engineering aspirant can make the most of. The popular disciplines of engineering for B.Tech./ B.E. courses are:
- Computer Science & Engineering
- Information Technology
- Civil Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Electronics & Communication Engineering
- Petroleum Engineering
Besides these disciplines; Aeronautical, Biotechnology, Petroleum and Automobile engineering are gaining popularity among the students.
The admission to engineering programmes in India is done through the entrance examinations such as JEE Main, JEE Advanced, and state-level entrance exams such as KEAM, COMEDK. Some institutes also conduct their own entrance examinations such as VIT and BITS. All the government colleges offer B.Tech. admission only on the basis of merit list prepared for the entrance exam.
However, some colleges/institutions also provide direct admission into an engineering course. These are mostly private colleges as they are provided with an option to keep some seats under management quota. We will discuss such colleges, the procedure for direct admission, the fee under the direct admission scheme and much more in the article ahead. So, read on for complete information.
What is Direct Admission?
Direct admission means admission without taking any entrance examinations. It is also known as an admission under management quota. The management reserves some seats for direct admission which are known as Management quota seats. 25% of the total engineering seats in any particular college are under the management quota. Direct admission is generally done in private colleges/institutions.
Who can go for Direct Admission?
Candidates who can consider for direct admission in B.Tech programmes include:
- Those who haven’t received good marks in the entrance examination.
- Those who do not wish to take a year’s gap for pursuing the course.
- Those who haven’t appeared for the entrance examination or who don’t want to appear in any such examinations.
Direct Admission Procedure
Candidates are required to do some research for direct admission in B.Tech course. They need to shortlist some good colleges and inquire them for their management quota admission process. Candidates are required to fill the application form and submit it along with all the required documents at the administration office/admission cell of the particular institute before the last date. The admission is provided on a first-come-first-serve basis. However, some instituted also consider the marks in class 12th board examination. The candidates are also required to pay the donation fee at the time of admission. Let’s move onto the next section for knowing about the fee details.
Fee under Management Quota
For securing a management quota seat, the candidate has to pay a fee other than the course fee. This fee is known as ‘donation fee’. The donation fee is the additional fee that a candidate has to pay for direct admission. This means such candidates have to pay a donation fee plus college fee. Thus,
Fee under Management Quota = Donation Fee + Course Fee
The donation fee is to be paid at once in lump-sum. The fee is not accepted in instalments. However, some colleges might provide a time of one month for depositing the full fee amount. This fee is paid only once during the complete duration of the course. The might get revised every year as on the discretion of the management.

Alternative - Direct Admission in B.Tech without Donation Fee
If you want to take admission in B.Tech. courses without paying any donation fee, you just have to appear for JEE Main exam. Even if you don’t qualify the JEE Main cut-off, you will receive a rank. On the basis of that rank, you can participate in the private colleges counselling process for admission in the B.Tech. courses. The counselling is conducted by the Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB). Thus, candidates can visit the official website of the board at csab.nic.in to participate in the counselling process. The candidates are just required to pay the counselling registration fee and course fee. This way, you can save one year gap from your academics.
We hope that the above information on admission into engineering courses through management quota will be useful for all of you who are not able to qualify JEE or who haven’t taken the exam. We would again warn you to not fall for the frauds who ask money and guarantee your admission in top colleges. Admission through management quota or CSAB opens a second chance to focus on your career. What is done is done but from now onwards for the four years of engineering course, you must focus on studies for a bright career.
