      CDAC offers 5 online diploma courses

      e-Diploma in Advanced Computing
      e-Diploma in Mobile Computing
      e-Diploma in Big Data Analytics
      e-Diploma in Artificial Intelligence
      e-Diploma in Advanced Computer Arts (e-DACA)

      The admissions page for online diploma courses on cdac website yields this page – https://www.cdac.in/index.aspx?id=edu_acts_OnlineDiplomaCourses, where admission info for September 2020 batch is available ATM. For the Sep 2020 batch, admission was indeed through CDAC C-CAT only. However it is not clear, either from this page or from CDAC CCAT 2021 what the mode of admission will be for the upcoming 2021 batch.

      If you are looking for admission in the upcoming batch, please contact CDAC (State wise details are here – https://www.cdac.in/index.aspx?id=contact)

      Otherwise if there is an update in the near future on this, we will surely update here.
