  • Only one team will be allowed to represent a college in the challenge.
  • In case of multiple entries from the same college, the teams would be clubbed together in a single team.
  • For selecting a Team Leader from a college, we will connect the entries before 1st September. After mutual agreement between multiple teams within 3 days, Team Leader should be decided and an official document with new team members should be submitted by 4th September.
  • After 1st september, i.e. if there are still multiple teams from the same college, the execution of Preliminary tasks should be done by the teams in collaboration with each other. They can give the submissions separately although.
  • If multiple submissions(of Preliminary task) even after 4th Sept the better performing entry reserves the right to select the team leader and further entries would be clubbed.
  • After you apply for the Basic track, the decision to let you continue in Basic track remains with E-Cell, IIT Bombay. We can even make you participate in Advance track. The decision made by E-Cell IITB will be the final and unquestionable.
  • Semifinalist teams will be selected based on their performance in preliminary tasks.
  • Please find attached NEC Brochure here. This can be used to show to your faculty when required.
