Salient Features of JoSAA

(Last Update :16/07/2016)

The Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) 2016 has been set up by the Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD) to manage and regulate the joint seat allocation for admissions to 92 institutes for the academic year 2016-17. This includes 22 IITs, ISM, 31 NITs, 20 IIITs and 18 Other-Government Funded Technical Institutes (Other-GFTIs). Admission to all the academic programs offered by these Institutes will be made through a single platform.

All the candidates
 who appeared for JEE (Main) 2016 / JEE (Advanced) 2016 should take note of the following important points:

Registration:

All candidates who have appeared in JEE (Main) 2016 are eligible to register for seat allocation in NIT+ system (except IITs & ISM).

All candidates who have declared qualified in JEE (Adv) 2016 are eligible to register for seat allocation in all participating Institutes.

Filling-in of choices: Candidates may fill-in their choices of Institutes and branches in decreasing order of their preference. Candidates are strongly urged to fill-in as many choices as possible.

Locking of choices: Candidates MUST “lock” their choices. For candidates who do NOT lock their choices, their last saved choices will be locked automatically when the time-window for filling-in of choices closes.

Number of rounds of seat allocation: JoSAA will conduct four six rounds that is 1st through 4th 6th rounds of seat allocation for academic programs offered by Institutes under JoSAA 2016.

Seat acceptance: Candidates allotted a seat must pay the seat acceptance fee (through e-Challan/SBI NetBanking) and get the documents verified at any reporting center (josaa.nic.in) for provisional seat acceptance .

Participation in subsequent rounds: A candidate is required to fill option for ‘freeze’, ‘slide’ or ‘float’ the choice of academic program.

Dual Reporting: If in a subsequent round, a candidate’s allotment from NIT+ system changes to an IIT/ ISM, the candidate MUST report ONCE AGAIN at an IIT reporting centre, similarly if a candidate’s allotment from IIT/ISM changes to an NIT+ system, the candidate MUST report ONCE AGAIN at any NIT+ reporting centre, failure to do so will result in forfeiture of seats allocated in both NIT+ system and IIT/ISM.

Withdraw option: A candidate, who has already accepted a seat, can withdraw the seat by reporting at a reporting center before the fourth sixth round of seat allocation.

Important: 

Registration – Candidates who do NOT register within the specified time window WILL NOT be able to seek admission for this academic year

Filling-in of choices – Candidates who do NOT fill-in choices within the specified time window WILL NOT be able to seek admission for this academic year

Dual Reporting: Two times reporting required in case of seat allotment changes from NIT+s system to IITs/ISM and vice versa.

 No modification of locked choices – once locked, choices CANNOT be modified.
