This centralised system provides a common and convenient platform for online counselling wherein the candidates can fill-in single online application form from their homes and apply to all programs in all the participating institutions to which they are eligible. The candidates are not required to apply to individual Institutes or go to every Institute for appearing in interview/counselling. Thus, CCMT-2019 enormously increases the overall convenience of candidates. The CCMT was initiated in the year 2012 for centralized admission for PG programs and since then has undergone several changes to make it more student-friendly and included newer institutions under its umbrella.

In the CCMT-2019, new features such as online withdrawal and willingness change etc. have been incorporated. The governmental reservation policy on Economically Weaker Section (EWS) is also implemented by many of the participating Institutes/University. Moreover, candidates are allowed to participate in both regular round and the National Spot Round (NSR) even if one has obtained a seat in the regular round. The CCMT-2019 is being organised by the National Institute of Technology Rourkela.
