  1. Candidate reporting at IIT- centre after Round1 allotment and Accepted the offered Seat opt for ” Slide ” option , but later not submitted Switchover Form for ” Slide to Freeze “in any IIT reporting centre .
    In that case , hopefully Offered Seat ( changed or not changed from Round1 to Round6 )will automatically be Freezed .
    Please reply and mention the referred clause of JOSAA 2018 in Y/N .
