As a result, candidates would be permitted to make fresh option registration from Wednesday 1 pm to Thursday noon (12 pm). 

The medical allotment, scheduled for Monday, has been postponed in the changed scenario. The first allotment list will now be published on November 20 based on options received till Thursday noon, a CEE press release said.

Candidates can also rearrange and delete unwanted options during the new registration window.

As reported earlier the fees for merit seat has been set at Rs 11-22 lakh and NRI seat at Rs 20-30 lakh. This is almost three times the amount recommended by the Justice R Rajendra Babu Committee.
