NIT-T’s help centre to guide students in counselling

As the organising institute for Central Seat Allocation Board 2019, Ministry of Human Resource Development, the National Institute of Technology - Tiruchi (NIT-T) has established an office with a help centre to guide students for effective participation in counselling process.

Director of NIT-T Mini Shaji Thomas is the chairperson of the CSAB 2019 and co-chairperson of the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) 2019 which will manage and regulate the joint seat allocation for admissions to 107 institutes, including 23 IITs, 31 NITs, 25 IIITs and 28 other government-funded technical institutes.

Admission to IITs is on the basis of JEE (Advanced). NITs, IIITs, Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur [IIEST] and other government-funded technical institutes admit students on the basis of JEE (Main). Admission to all the undergraduate academic programmes offered by these institutes will be made through a single platform and coordinated by JoSAA and CSAB for seven rounds.

From this year, 10% reservation will be provided for students belonging to Economically Weaker Sections for admission in central educational Institutions. Moreover, in keeping with the MHRD’s decision to improve gender balance in undergraduate programmes at IITs and NITs to 17% (approximately) in 2019-20, supernumerary seats will be specifically created for girl students.

The seat allocation process would involve seven normal rounds, to be conducted by JoSAA-2019 for admission to IITs and NIT+ system, followed by two special rounds, to be conducted by CSAB 2019, only for NIT+ System.

All candidates who have appeared in JEE (Main) 2019 are eligible to register for seat allocation in NIT+ system (except IITs). All candidates who have been declared qualified in JEE (Advanced) 2019 are eligible to register for seat allocation in all participating institutes including IITs.

Candidates may fill in their choices of institutes and branches in decreasing order of their preference. Candidates are expected to fill in as many choices of their interest as possible, a press release said.

Candidates must “lock” their choices. For candidates who fail to do so, their last saved choices will be locked automatically when the time-window for filling in of choices closes. Once locked, choices cannot be modified. Candidate registration and choice filling for academic programmes under JoSAA ends on June 25. Last round (7th round) of seat allocation will be on July 18. Specifics on seat allocation process could be sourced at JoSAA 2019 portal (https://josaa.nic.in).
