JoSAA Counselling Round 1 Result Announced

Joint Seat Allocation Authority, JoSAA Counselling 2021 is underway for admissions to IITs, NITs. The Round 1 Seat Allotment Result has been released. Candidates can check the result now on the official website –

JoSAA Counselling 2021 registration process started on October 16, 2021. This result is the final one for candidates looking for a seat for admissions at the end of Round 1. Before this, a Mock Seat Allocation was conducted in two rounds for candidates to get an idea about the same.

Candidates must visit the official website of Counselling –  On the Homepage, click on the link that reads, 'Round 1 Seat Allotment results.' Alternatively, candidates can also click on the direct link given here to check JoSAA Counselling 2021 round 1 result.  Enter your credentials to login like JEE Main application Number and Password. Your JoSAA Counselling 2021 result for round 1 of seat allocation will be displayed on your screen.   Download and take a print of the same for future references.

After the seat allotment result is released, a candidate has to accept the seat online by choosing any of the options - freeze, float, slide, for the academic program they want. However, it must be noted that these options will be available to only those who don't get admission in their first choice

Freeze: When a candidate chooses this option, it means they have accepted the seat allotted to them. This would also signify that the candidate is happy with the seat allotted and would not participate in further rounds of counselling. 

Float: When a candidate chooses this option, this means that they are accepting the seat offered to them. However, if a seat is available in an academic program of higher preference, the candidate will accept it. This would signify that candidates are available to participate in subsequent rounds of counselling. 

Slide: When a candidate accepts this option, it means that they are accepting the seat allocated to them. However, if admission to an academic program of higher preference is available within the 'same institute', the candidate will accept it. These candidates will also be considered for subsequent rounds of counselling.

  • 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 credential, 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 valid certificate of category GEN EWS/OBCNCL/PwD/DS/OCI/PIO/state code of eligibility or declaration of gender and the allotted seat gets cancelled 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).

Candidates must note that after they check their results and in the event of getting a seat, they must proceed with fee payment, document verification and online reporting. It should be done from October 27 to 30, 2021.
