Best wishes!

Hi Manisha,

As you haven't mentioned your category, so I am assuming it to be OC. Hence, you have good chances of securing a seat in Vidya Jyothi Institute of Technology because as per last year's cutoff the closing rank for OC was around 4800 which you qualify hence, I think you have good chances of getting a seat in VJIT.

All the best.
