About JoSAA

JoSAA 2017 - Joint Seat Allocation Authority is commonly known as JoSAA, consists of representatives from the JAB 2017 (for IITs/ISM) and CSAB 2017 (for NITs, IIITs, and Other-GFTIs). JoSAA Counselling is a common counselling for admission to IITs, ISM Dhanbad, IIEST Shibpur, NITs, IIITs, CFTIs and GFTIs. Only students who have secured JEE Main Rank in Paper 1 or Paper 2 or JEE Advanced are eligible for the JoSAA Counselling. Until the year 2014, Joint Admission Board (JAB) and the Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) conducted their own JEE Counselling to offer admission in IITs, ISM Dhanbad & NITs, SFTIs respectively. But from the academic session 2015-16 onwards Common Counselling for IITs and NIT's is being conducted to fill the seats.

Latest Update: JoSAA has uploaded the seat allotment result for the Round 3. The candidates can check the JoSAA Seat Allotment Result for Round 3 by following the link given towards the end of the page. To check the allotment result, the candidates have to enter their JEE Main Roll Number and Password in the link below.

  • Since there is no weightage of class 12th marks in calculation of ranks in JEE (Main) - 2017, so,  the roll number of class 12th is not verified this year by the CBSE, however, the candidates have to show the mark sheet of class 12th (regular/improvement) with 75% marks at the reporting centres at the time of counselling/admission in IITs/NITs/IIITs and other CFTIs.

The online JoSAA 2017 registration choices for academic programs in participating institutes has started from 15 June 2017. The candidates can register themselves online and can do the choice filling for JoSAA 2017. The link for JoSAA Counselling Registration is given in the section of Application Process.

What is the reason behind Joint Counselling & Seat Allotment?

  • To provide a Common Platform: The main reason behind the collaboration is that all the candidates who are desirous of getting admission in India’s most prominent Engineering Institutions should get a single and common platform to apply for admission. IITs, ISM, NITs, IIITs, and other GFTIs.
  • To do away with the Vacant Seats: Second most important reason is to remove the procedure of multiple reservations of the seats. Until the last year, candidates were in a habit of reserving as many seats as they can for seeking admissions, as a result of which many seats used to remain vacant. To avoid this joint counselling has been introduced wherein students are allowed only to select colleges/courses as per their preference/choice but are not permitted to reserve numerous seats.
