1. Home University (HU) seats – Deadly Competition:
Home students have advantage 70% or 84 seats is reserved for Home University candidates i.e. for the University under the jurisdiction of which that institute is located. Home University seats are available for allotment through CAP only for the Maharashtra candidates having their Home University status as of that University. Example Mumbai Student applying for Mumbai based colleges like Sydenham KJ Somaiya and Welingkar.. Home advantage ends here as open seats are only 38 in every college.

2. Other than Home University (OHU) Seats – Most difficult competition :
15% or 18 seats as per the type of institute is reserved for Other Universities i.e. for the Universities other than the University under the jurisdiction of which that institute is located. Such seats are called as OHU seats. OHU seats of an Institute are available for allotment through CAP only for the Maharashtra candidates belonging to Universities in Maharashtra State other than the University under the jurisdiction of which that institute is located. Candidates can opt for the seat of any other University (excluding his/her home university) under this provision of OHU seats. Example Pune students applying for Mumbai based college. This category has the most difficult competition as there are only 09 open seats.

3. All India Seats (for MS and OMS candidates) – Deadly competition :
These 15% or 18 seats seats are available for allotment through CAP for the both eligible Maharashtra and Outside Maharashtra State candidates. Provision of reservation for backward class categories is not available i.e. All India level seats are treated as belonging to the “General Category”. Example Delhi Student applying for Mumbai colleges. But as most of the students are not aware of this competition is very less for 18 seats all open seats…
So you should focus on the 1 seat which you want rather than focusing on less seats.
