IIT JEE JoSAA Seat Allocation 2016: Important Points to Remember
The Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) will publish the JEE Main ranks on June 23. The ranks will be obtainable from the official website, http://josaa.nic.in
JEE Advanced 2016 Examination has been conducted by seven zonal Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) under the guidance of Joint Admission Board (JAB) on May 22. Paper 1 was conducted from 9 am to 12 pm and Paper 2 was held from 2 pm to 5 pm. The performance of a candidate in this examination will form the basis for admission to various bachelor’s degree programmes in 23 IITs, including Indian School of Mines (ISM), Dhanbad along with other reputed engineering institutes.
Here are a few important points about seat allocation:
Who can register?
All the candidates who have appeared in JEE (Main) 2016 are eligible to register for seat allocation in NIT+ system (except IITs & ISM)
The 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 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 rounds i.e., first through 4th rounds of seat allocation for academic programmes offered by institutes under JoSAA 2016.
Candidates allotted a seat must pay the seat acceptance fee (through e-Challan/SBI NetBanking) and get the documents verified at any reporting center
Participation in subsequent rounds:
A candidate is required to fill option for ‘freeze’, ‘slide’ or ‘float’ the choice of academic program.
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.
A candidate, who has already accepted a seat, can withdraw the seat by reporting at a reporting center before the fourth round of seat allocation.
