There are TWO steps in the application procedure. Candidates must first register by entering their name and valid e-mail address in the appropriate registration boxes below. An application password will then be automatically sent to the candidates' e-mail address; the e-mail address and the password must be entered in order to fill out the Online Application Form. The Application Form also requires the names and e-mail addresses of two referees. When the form is submitted, the candidate will receive an e-mail containing his/her Online ID, an account password, and confirmation that s/he has applied for INAT-2016. E-mails will also be automatically sent to the two referees, requesting them to fill and submit the online Confidential Assessment Form. The candidates should inform their referees about the Assessment Form. Note that each applicant must submit his/her Application Form before the referee fills the Assessment Form. Please e-mail The Co-ordinator at email@example.com in case of any problems with the online forms.
Based on the applications and referee assessments, a subset of the candidates will be short-listed and invited to take the written test, to be held in Pune on Thursday, December 8, 2016. All outstation candidates who are invited to take the test will be paid travel support as per the prevailing rules. Candidates with more than 55% in the qualifying examination may walk-in for the written test by producing a valid photo identification. Also bring with you a copy of your most recent marksheet. You should report at the Chandrasekhar Auditorium, IUCAA by 9:00 a.m. for verification of these documents, to ensure that there are no logistical problems. In the case of walk-in candidates, travel support will be paid as per rules only to those candidates who qualify for the interviews. Based on the marks in the written test, a further subset of the candidates will be invited to attend two interviews, by two different committees. The final selection will be based on a combination of the marks obtained in the written test and the interviews.
Please register yourself as a candidate for INAT-2016. If you have already registered and have received your application password, you can proceed to fill the Online Application Form below.
