GNDU have B.Tech lateral admission. However Electrical engineering branch is not available here. So think about some other branches. Further JEE Main is not required for lateral admission. However University will conduct own entrance exam.

To get into NITs via JEE Mains, you'll need to have passed 12th grade with at least 75% marks (or be in the top 20% of your class). For SC/ST students, the minimum is 65%. There's no upper age limit.

It's impossible to say for sure, but your EWS rank should be significantly better than your CRL rank. Think somewhere in the ballpark of 10,000 to 20,000. This is just an estimate though, as the exact difference can vary each year.

No, you can't change it for JEE Advanced after filling out the Mains form. Your category sticks from Mains to Advanced.
