JoSAA 2018 Counselling - Freeze, Float and Slide Options


At the time of accepting the seat, a candidate can opt for three options that are freeze, float or slide the choice of academic program for subsequent round(s), if any, of joint seat allocation. The three options are discussed below:

  • Freeze: In this case, the candidates accept the offered seat and indicate that they are content with the allocated 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: In this case, 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: In this case, 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.

From the above three options of accepting the seats, the 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.

Document verification for JoSAA 2018 Seat Allotment/ Counselling

  • Candidates who are allocated a seat in an IIT or ISM have to report only at a reporting centre of the IITs.

Dual Reporting for Document Verification

  • When a candidate chooses float option, and if that candidate is Allotment a seat in an IIT/ISM in one round and in NITs/IIEST/IIITs or Other-GFTIs in a subsequent round, then the candidate has to report once again for document verification and seat acceptance at a reporting centre of NITs.
  • Similarly, if a candidate is allocated a seat in NITs / IIEST/IIITs (Triple-I-T) or Other-GFTIs in one round and in an IIT/ISM in a subsequent round, then the candidate has to report once again for document verification and seat acceptance at a reporting centre of IITs.
