Admission Counselling

JEE Main Counselling Procedure 2021:

The JEE Main Counselling Procedure or Admission Procedure 2021 will start immediately after the JEE Advanced Result 2021 is declared. The Counselling Procedure will be conducted by JOSAA 2021 or Joint Seat Allocation Authority 2021 in coordination with the Joint Admission Board or JAB of the IITs or Indian Institutes of Technology and CSAB or Central Seat Allocation Board of NITs, IIITs, and CFTIs or GFTIs. After JOSAA two special rounds are conducted by the CSAB 2021 or Central Seat Allocation Board for the Counselling of remaining vacant seats in the NITs, IIEST Shibpur, IIITs, and GFTIs after the completing of JOSAA 2021 Final Counselling Round.

The JEE Main Counselling Procedure 2021 also includes the CSAB NEUT 2021 or Central Seat Allocation Board for North Eastern States and Union Territories which is conducted for admissions to the candidates who belong from the following states and Union Territories on the basis of JEE Main Score:

Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Tripura, Sikkim, Nagaland, Mizoram, Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Lakshadweep, and Daman & Diu.

 

*Please Note: These seats are different from the seats that are offered in CSAB 2021 in NITs, IIITs and GFTIs.

The Counselling by JOSAA 2021 will be done on the basis of Common Rank Lists of JEE Main and JEE Advanced 2021. The admissions in only the IITs will be based upon the Ranks of JEE Advanced for the rest the admissions will be based on the JEE Main 2021 Rank.

Also, in the Counselling the admissions will be given to candidates based on their respective category Rank and for some colleges like NITs also on the basis of their Home State as some of the seats are reserved for the Home State Quota in many NITs. The Home State is the state from which the candidates completed their class 12th or its equivalent.

The JEE Main Counselling Procedure 2021 is as follows:

  • After the JEE Advanced Result 2021 is declared the JOSAA Counselling Schedule will be declared and the registration on the JOSAA Portal will open.
  • Registration for AAT 2021 or Architecture Aptitude Test 2021 will also begin just after the result. So, candidates interested in studying Architecture from the IITs can register for it.
  • Candidates have to register on the JOSAA Portal with their JEE Main 2021 Application Number and Date of Birth.
  • After the seat Allotment in Initial Rounds candidates can choose to either Freeze, Float, or Slide.
  • Freeze: Candidates accept the offered seat and indicate that they are content with the allocated academic program and that they do not want to participate in further rounds of seat allocation. Such candidates will NOT be considered in subsequent rounds of admission.
  • Float: Candidates accept the offered seat and indicate that, if admission to an academic program of better/higher preference in any Institute is offered, they will accept it. Else, they will continue with the currently accepted academic program. Such candidates will be considered in subsequent rounds of admission.
  • Slide: Candidates accept the offered seat and indicate that, if admission to an academic program of better/higher preference is offered within the same Institute, they will accept it. Such candidates will be considered in subsequent rounds of admission.
  • For candidates who choose the float or slide option, allocation of a seat in an academic program of his/her higher preference would automatically result in the forfeiture of the seat accepted by the candidate in the earlier round. (Candidates are advised to keep their log-in credentials, i.e., login Id and password, strictly confidential to avoid any misuse).
  • Slide and float options will be available to only those candidates who are NOT offered admission to their first choice.
  • Slide and float options are NOT available in the last round of seat acceptance.
  • Except in the last round of seat allocation, a candidate can change from float to slide/freeze and slide to freeze by online reporting.
  • If a candidate opts to freeze against a seat, the option cannot be changed.
  • During the seat allotment period of a particular round of seat allocation, if there is a change in the credentials of a candidate due to failure in producing a valid certificate of category GEN-EWS/OBCNCL/PwD/DS/OCI/PIO/state code of eligibility or declaration of gender and the allotted seat gets canceled then the candidate will be considered for seat allocation in subsequent round(s) as per the updated credentials. In such cases, the candidate must report again online for accepting the freshly allocated seat (with a new undertaking for choosing float or slide or freeze).

After the last Round of JOSAA 2021, the remaining seats that are left vacant in the NITs, IIITs, and GFTIs will be declared by JOSAA, and admissions into the same will be conducted by the CSAB or Central Seat Allocation Board in two special Rounds based upon the JEE Main 2021 Rank.

Simultaneously of the JOSAA 2021 and CSAB 2021 the CSAN NEUT 2021 Counselling will be carried on for the admissions of the candidates of the North Eastern States and Union Territories and the four Union Territories as mentioned above.

After all the JEE Main Counselling Procedure 2021 is completed the classes in all the respective institutions will begin and the new session for the courses commences.
