    Yes lateral entry students are eligible if the degree is from a full time course and also from a recognised University.Among correspondence courses,only AMIE degree holders are eligible and not other correspondence degrees.You are perfectly eligible if you have a B.tech degree whether after 12th or after Diploma.All the best
