JoSAA 2017 Counselling restarted after Supreme Court vacates its stay on 10 July 2017. Earlier a ed light was shown to the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) after encountering with the multiple petitions by the students on the 18 Marks Policy of IIT Madras, and the stay was given to the seat allocation procedure when already 29425 students were allotted seats in the 23 Institutions. Now the supreme court has lifted its stay and directed the conducting body to continue the JEE Advanced Counselling procedure (JoSAA) to reinstate the admission process as the final hearing on the whole matter.

  • "We are inclined to vacate the order passed on July 7 and also convey that we are not inclined to interfere with the counselling and admission process, and high courts should act accordingly and not interfere in the admission process."
  • The extra marks were granted in the wake of a printing error in a Hindi language paper.
  • The Supreme Court reminded its 2005 decision to not allow bonus marks to candidates who have not attempted the incorrect questions as it is difficult to re-evaluate more than two lakh answer sheets.
