  1. Admission under the PMRF will be made in 18 broad disciplines.

  2. For each broad discipline one IIT or IISc will coordinate the admission process (review applications, shortlist applicants, constitute selection committees and hold final selections) and will be referred to as the Nodal Institute for that broad discipline.

  3. Given below is the list of broad disciplines along with the respective nodal institution.
