Note: Above mentioned are the minimum eligibility criteria and do not imply entitlement.

The relaxation, if any, in the cut-off criteria shall be to ensure a sufficient number of candidates for each of the categories for the WAT and PI process. The participating IIMs/Admission Committee at IIM Sirmaur reserve the right to have a higher/lower cut-off than those mentioned above.
