IIT JEE Rankings 2016 out; Dipanshu Jindal, Pratush Maini & Rajesh Bansal emerge as toppers
On 23 June, candidates will be able to find out if they stand a chance to bag any of the 34,781 seats for the 23 Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), the 31 National Institutes of Technology (NITs), the 18 Government-funded Technical Institutes (GFTIs) and the 20 Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs).
This year, IITs have 10,575 seats on offer while the NITs have 18,013 seats up for grabs. Candidates can apply for these seats by filling up the forms of the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA), based on the JEE Main ranks 2016.
The JoSAA, set up by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), regulates the entire process of the JEE Advanced and the joint seat allocation process to a total of 92 institutions through a single platform.
The joint counselling will commence from 24 June 2016.
Aspirants who appeared for the JEE (Main) 2016 and the JEE (Advanced) 2016 must remember following eight points:
1. Registration details
- Candidates who have appeared for the JEE (Main) 2016 are eligible to register for seat allocation in NIT+ system (except IITs & ISM).
- Candidates who have qualified the JEE (Adv) 2016 are eligible to register for seat allocation in all participating institutes.
- Candidates who do not register within the specified time window will not be able to seek admission for this academic year.
2. Mark your choices
- Candidates may list their choices of institutes and branches in decreasing order of preference. Candidates are strongly urged to put in as many choices as possible.
- Candidates who do not fill in their choices within the specified time window will not be able to seek admission for this academic year
3. Lock your 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.
- No modification of locked choices. Once locked, choices cannot be modified.
4. Number of rounds of seat allocation
The JoSAA will conduct four rounds of seat allocation for academic programs offered by institutes under JoSAA 2016.
5. Seat acceptance
Candidates who are 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.
6. Participation in subsequent rounds
A candidate is required to pick an option to 'freeze', 'slide' or 'float' the choice of academic program.
7. 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 the NIT+ system and IIT/ISM.
- Applicants must report twice in case of seat allotment changes from NIT+s system to IITs/ISM and vice-versa.
8. Withdraw option
A candidate, who has already accepted a seat, can withdraw the seat by showing up at a reporting center before the fourth round of seat allocation.
