Rules For Allotment Of MTS Projects

Each participant has to give his/her preference regarding the functional area and the states he/she wants to do his/her MTS. This will be done only on an individual basis. The classification of the functional area were marketing, development, systems, finance, human resources and operations.

 There are certain weightages for the preferences while deciding the allotment of the projects as shown in the Individual Preference Matrix (IPM).

The weightage for states falling outside this list is 10 points.


If there is no projects from the states and the functional area given by a participant, there will be no adjustments made in the participants PM.

No changes will be allowed in the IPM after submission of the same. All individuals have to give a choice of 6 projects after the list of projects is released. In case more than one participant is interested in a particular project, then draw of lots will be resorted for deciding the projects.

Allotment of the projects

If there is more than one participant who has put a project as his/her first choice then his/her scores on the IPM will be taken to allot the project. If there is still a tie in the scores on the IPM, draw of lots will be resorted to allot the project. If a participant does not want to take up a project after it is allotted to him/her through the draw of lots then, he will be eligible for allotment of projects after all the remaining participants have been allotted their projects. The Individual Preference Matrix (IPM) will help in the allotment of projects according to the preferences of the students and minimize the chances of a tie. This will also help in solving cases where more than one individual vies for the same project. The allotment process will be carried out in the following manner. After the IPM of each student has been collected, all the projects will be displayed under the above-mentioned categories. Each student will be asked to give preferences for four projects. Then the IPM scores of each student will be calculated. The Project will be allocated on the basis of both the IPM score and the project preference

Choosing of the partner

Suppose a person who has the highest score for project "A" has to choose his/her partner. Now he/she will have to choose his/her partner from amongst only those people who have opted for this particular project "A". This group consists of all those people who had filled Project "A" as one of their preferences. Thus we are excluding those who have not filled this project "A" as their preference.


The management traineeship project

Suppose A and B are students who want to be partners. As given in the rules if they want to go together then they should fill in the same preference but if they do so then they have a chance to lose as the project of their choice may not come from the required state so to maximize their chances of going together they will fill in different choices. This will help them to choose either of the projects if both of them get the project of their choices, either of which will be acceptable to them. For this purpose they would settle for the top preference of either. Now to attain this purpose both of them need to have total of their individual IPM highest for their individual choice of state and functional area.

 The relative ranking of both should be such that both of them get the highest ranking for at least one combination of state and functional area that each wants and the other should get the next highest total for the one the other has highest ranking for on the IPM for example if A wants Delhi-Marketing and B fills in Pune-Finance then A’s second preference would be Pune-Finance and B’s second choice would be Delhi-Marketing. Now A’s IPM total for Delhi-Marketing combination would be 100 and similarly would B’s total IPM for Pune-Finance would be 100 and their second best options that would be vice versa would have totals of 88 each (Pune-Finance for A and Delhi-Marketing for B).

The payoffs: if A chooses Delhi –marketing then his payoff for Delhi- marketing would be 100 and be chooses this as his second option then the associated payoff for B will be 88. Similarly if B chooses Pune –finance as his first option and A chooses this as his second option then the associated payoffs for both will be 100 and 88. the negative payoff for both of them is that they are unable to go together and this way their payoff is equivalent to nullity.
