That is the sole point of COAP.
To not enable a competitor with better rank to obstruct different seats in each IIT.
Here is the thing that hopefuls with better rank used to do before :-
They connected for all the best establishments. Presently assume that they were chosen in all the IITs they connected for yet didn’t get their coveted branch which was their best inclination. So they dismissed none of the offers till last round in anticipation of an upgradation of their inclinations in each IITs. Furthermore, in the last round they chose one out of the considerable number of offers accessible for them.
Presently as they dismissed a large portion of their offers in last round numerous seats went empty.
Furthermore, even in light of this many lower rank applicants settled with the offers they got in before rounds.
Presently what’s the part of COAP ?
Basic Offer Acceptance Portal will take every one of the offers of a competitor from each IITs he/she has been shortlisted and show on its page.
COAP page will have 3 alternatives for you to choose:-
1) ACCEPT and FREEZE
You need to ACCEPT just a single out of the considerable number of offers that you have been shortlisted for. Also, FREEZE that on the off chance that you are happy with it.
2) RETAIN and WAIT

3) REJECT and WAIT

There will be different such adjusts.
Presently due to this competitors with higher rank won’t have the capacity to hinder numerous seats in each IITs and this will enable applicants with bring down rank to get into great IITs.
What’s more, even this will guarantee that no seat is left empty.
Expectation it clears your uncertainty.
