No, you are not eligible to appear in IIT examination after completion of your three years Diploma course because, IIT's does not offer Lateral Entry admissions in B.E/B.Tech course. Only candidates who have completed 12th standard with Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry subjects from a recognised board are eligible to appear in IIT examination. So, being a Diploma holder, you are not eligible to appear in IIT examination.

No,candidates with diploma degree are not eligible to get admission in IIT.

To get admission in IIT candidates have to appear and qualify in both stages of JEE examination.

But, you are not eligible to appear for JEE examination. So, you are not eligible for admission, but you can pursue B.tech through LEET examination.

1. Diploma candidates are not eligible for admission in bachelor of technology in Indian Institute of Technology as they can only apply for Joint Entrance Exam Main for admission in NIT and other government engineering.

2. Second option for you to get admission in second year of engineering is through Lateral Entry Entrance test.

You can't get admission in IIT after completion of diploma.

Only 10+2 passed students are eligible for IIT & diploma is not equivalent to 10+2.
Also IIT doesn't offers lateral entry admissions to B.Tech.

So, you can't get admission in IIT but you can get admission in another university.

Yes, you can pursue bachelor's degree in engineering after diploma. However, you must know that diploma candidates are not eligible for JEE Advanced exam even when they clear Joint Entrance Exam Main.

So, you can pursue Bachelor's degree in engineering from colleges like NITs, IIITs, government engineering etc but not eligible for admission in IIT for B.Tech.

Other than JEE Main, you can apply for state technical universities exam called Lateral Entry Entrance Test. This exam gives you opportunity to get direct admission in second year of engineering. For LEET, a candidate must have scored at least 60% marks in diploma.

IIT stands for Indian Institute of Technology and it is India's best university for technical courses.

Candidate with diploma degree are not eligible to appear for JEE examination and hence not eligible to get admission in IIT.

As to appear for JEE examination the required eligibility is candidate must have passed 10+2 from any recognised board.

JEE examination is conducted in two stages and candidates after qualifying in both stages are eligible for admission in IIT.
