Half-Time Teaching Assistantship HTTA

What is HTTA? What is N-HTTA?  
Financial assistance in the form of Half-Time Teaching Assistantship (HTTA) at the rate of Rs.8,000/- per month (tenable for a maximum period of 24 months) will be awarded to Indian nationals doing the M.Tech. programmes, subject to Institute rules. HTTA students are required to assist the department for 8 hours of work per week related to academic activities of the department such as laboratory demonstration, tutorials, evaluation of assignments, test papers, seminars, research projects, etc. The number of seats available under HTTA is indicated in Table 1.
A few seats are available without HTTA (N-HTTA, i.e., without any financial assistance) in some M.Tech. Streams as indicated in Table 1.
Provision exists for the candidates who have joined M.Tech. Streams under N- HTTA category to convert to HTTA at the end of one semester depending on the vacancies in HTTA category and on the basis of their performance in the first semester examinations.

Can I apply for both HTTA and N-HTTA seats?  
Candidates can opt for either HTTA (code ending with Y), or N-HTTA (Code ending with N), or both, in a particular M.Tech. stream. The eligibility criteria for HTTA and N-HTTA categories are the same
