Important information

  • Only Online Applications will be considered, except for the O-DM course and C-SC course.
  • Application fee for courses M.Tech., PG Diploma, M.Sc., PG Diploma (IIRS-ITC JEP) and Certificate Course: Short Course on Remote Sensing and Image Analysis (C-RS) : For Indian nationals – Rs. 1,000; For Foreign nationals – USD 100. 
    • Fee should be paid online.
    • Candidates applying for M.Tech. course may choose maximum two specializations (wherever eligible) at the time of submitting the application, without any extra application fee (i.e. total application fee for two specializations is Rs. 1,000 only for Indian nationals and USD 100 for foreign nationals). However, they will have to finally opt only one specialization out of the two chosen specializations at the time of entrance test, since entrance test will be conducted for one specialization only for a candidate.
    • Candidates applying for P.G. Diploma course in Remote Sensing & GIS may choose maximum four specializations (wherever eligible) in order of their preference. However, application fee of Rs. 1,000 for Indian nationals and USD 100 for foreign nationals will be applicable for choosing up to two specialisations; if a candidate chooses three or four specializations, the application fee will be Rs. 2,000 for Indian nationals and USD 200 for foreign nationals.
  • Instructions for Appearing Candidates:
    • Candidates in the final semester/year of the qualifying degree can also apply for the P.G. Diploma, M.Tech. and M.Sc. courses under the “Result Awaited” category. However, such candidates must submit the proof of marks/grades (cumulative marks/CGPA) till the pre-final semester/year at the time of submitting the application, without which the application will be treated as incomplete and will be rejected.
    • In case of candidates applying for M.Tech/M.Sc. courses, they must bring a certificate in original from the Competent Authority of their Institute at the time of interview stating that: (i) by 30th June, 2019, he/she will have appeared for examination in all subjects required for obtaining his/her qualifying degree; and (ii) he/she has obtained requisite marks [i.e. 55% or equivalent upto pre-final semester/year in case of candidates applying for M.Tech. course, and 60% or equivalent in case of candidates applying for M.Sc. course]. However, admission of such candidates, if selected, will be provisional and they will have to submit the marksheets/certificates of final semester/year on the date of registration (during admission) or before the last date as announced/decided by IIRS. Non-fulfilment of this condition will automatically result in the cancellation of the provisional admission.
    • The candidates applying for P.G. Diploma course should submit the marksheets/certificates of final semester/year on the date of registration (during admission).
