What is the reason behind Joint Counselling & Seat Allotment?

  • To provide a Common Platform: The main objective to conduct the joint counselling is to provide a common platform for all the candidates. Hence, the candidates who are desirous of seeking admission in one of India's most popular Engineering will get a single and common platform to apply for admission to IITs, ISM, NITs, IIITs, and other GFTIs.
  • To do away with the Vacant Seats: The second reason for conducting joint counselling and seat allotment is to elude the process of multiple reservations from one candidate. Until the last year, the candidates used to reserve many seats as they can for backup of which the seats at most of the time remained vacant. To ignore any such activities, joint counselling has been introduced wherein students are allowed only to select colleges/ courses as per their choice.
