On receipt of the application, you will be intimated the name and address of the project guide, who in turn shall assign the project work to the candidate.

I have just received a letter from IEI regarding project work. It is stated in the letter that "This is to confirm that you have been registered for the project work in Electrical Engineering branch, having optional subject code nos. 411, 414, 415 with the following Project Guide, whose name and address are given below:" Does it mean that I have to select a project topic from optional subjects 411, 414 or 415?

No. Code numbers 411, 414 and 415 are your optional subjects in Section B. The topic of the project work will be given to you by the project guide.

What if the project guide I assigned is not interested, out of station, or expired?

In case the Project Guide allotted to you is not available, you should contact the Chairman of your attached centre and submit an application to this effect for allotment of another Project Guide. Applications for another project guide should not be sent to IEI HQs, but to chairman of IEI local centre. See addresses of IEI centres to contact chairman.

What is the impact of grade "D" in projec/lab work?

As for role of grade "D" in project work/lab experiment, read following examples carefully:

Example: I have got grade "D" in one subject in just concluded AMIE exam of section B. I have passed all other subjects with total GPA more than 6. My lab is submitted but project is not submitted. Should I appear in the subject in which I got grade "D"?

No. Grades of AMIE Project work and Lab experiments are considered in CGPA (not in GPA). So if your project/lab is not submitted and you got grade D in latest attempt (provided GPA is over 6), you need not appear in any subject. just wait till your project/lab is submitted (both internal and external) so that CGPA can be awarded. Afterwards, you will be declared pass.
