Guys, will it help if we write about previous years' vacant seats to MHRD ? If there are 200 seats, naturally all 200 seats should be open and filled. Their internal logistics/ management issues should not reduce the no. of promised opportunities.

Yep. Go for it. Beurocracy should not snub opportunities.

 A gentle request to converted candidates, who have planned to withdraw admission after paying 1L , please convey the same to admission office/team. Your small step can help ones in the waitlist, those who only have VGSOM as a  lone option. Kindly mail your details like Name, Application Number and Selection Status (like Selected/Waitlisted) to "admissions@vgsom.iitkgp.ac.in" keeping "admission.vgsom@gmail.com" in cc. You can keep the subject of the mail as “Withdrawal of Seat from Admissions 2021-23 || <Full Name of the Candidate>”. Thanks, Hope this helps! Please share if you guys are in any other groups too. 

Thanks in Advance 😄
