Two seats are available for preferential allotment in each institute for children of defence/ paramilitary personnel killed or permanently disabled in action during war or peace time operations (DS subcategory). Candidates belonging to DS subcategory should submit the original certificate issued by the competent authority in the Directorate of Resettlement and Rehabilitation, New Delhi under the Ministry of Defence or Ministry of Home affairs, Government of India.
