    Important information regarding eligibility
    WBJEEB do neither verify the information provided by any candidate during on line application nor verify any certificate of date of birth, domicile, income, reservation category, academic qualification etc. for deciding the eligibility of the candidate. Admit cards are issued only on the basis of the information provided by the candidate. Also, normally there is no scope of correction/change of any information after the final submission of online application.

    Every admission is provisional subject to verification of documents. Verifications are to be done during counselling and subsequent admission and registration with the university. If at any stage after examination it is found on scrutiny that the applicant is otherwise ineligible, his/her candidature shall be treated as cancelled even if he/she secured a Merit Rank in the PUBDET-2024 and/or a seat has been allotted to the candidate.

    Hence, securing a Rank in the PUBDET-2024 does not constitute a right/guarantee in favour of a candidate for his/her claim for admission if he/she fails to comply with the specified norms and standards.
