The shortlisted candidates of all the six IIMs will be merged to make a combined short-list for further processing.
The criteria given in Table 1 will be used to rank the students in different categories (General, NCOBC, SC, ST and PWD) and for shortlisting of candidates based on ranking within categories for further processing.
