First a small primer on NIMCET:
NIT MCA Common Entrance Test (NIMCET) is an all-India entrance test conducted by the NIT (National Institute of Technology)s for admission to the MCA programme in the NITs. First NIMCET was conducted in 2005 and since from than, it is being held every year. Source: Wiki
NIMCET exam has come as a boon for the MCA aspirants, as previously students had to apply to each NITs individually and also go through the selection process separately for each NITs. With NIMCET exam, you need to apply only once for the 11 participating institutes (in NIMCET-2011) and post selection in NIMCET, your admission is done through a centralized counseling.NIMCET-2011 seat-break up institute-wise:
