The admission procedure consists of the following mandatory phases - online registration and choice-filling through the JoSAA website; seat allocation by JoSAA, to be published through the JoSAA website and online document verification.

The first round of seat allocation will be published in the JoSAA website on October 27 which will be followed by the first round online reporting, fee remittance, document upload, response by candidate to query (if required) and seat acceptance from October 27- 30.

Instead of this, the document verification process would be online this year. In case the situation did not permit the physical presence of candidate at the institutes for admission, the above process would also be done online.
