Last Updated - March 12, 2018

JEE Main Counselling 2017 will be conducted by Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) in July 2017. JEE Main Counselling and seat allotment will be held in 6 rounds for admission to engineering and architecture courses in various government and private colleges. JoSAA will provide a single online platform for application to these colleges to candidates. The applicants who qualify in the JEE Main can register for the seat allotment process. Seat allotment will be done online on the basis of rank, category and other factors. They have to then report to the allotted institute for document verification and payment of fees.

JEE Main will be held on April 2, 2017 and the results will be declared on April 27, 2017. The exam is held for admission into various IITs, NITs, IIITs and other government and private engineering and architecture colleges.

What to bring for JEE Main Counselling 2017?

Candidates have to register for the counselling process online. They must fill their preference form for college choices. The candidates have to pay a Seat Acceptance fee via any of the online methods and then report to the allotted institute for admission to their particular courses.  A merit list for each college will be put up by the authority based on the choice of college.

There are about 44 counselling centers and candidates have to report to the center allocated to them. Applicants must bring original documents and multiple attested copies for document verification along with the requisite annual fees for the course. The certificates for caste validation, disability, multiple disability, etc. have to be in a specific format. The format for all these certificates can be downloaded from the official website .

Important Guidelines for JEE Main Counselling 2017

The applicants must follow some strict guidelines to ensure a smooth running of the counselling process. These instructions are as given below:

  • JEE Main Counselling rules are declared by the Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB).
  • Only those students that have secured qualifying marks in the JEE Main are eligible for the seat allotment process.
  • Number of seats available in different categories will be announced on the online portal 
  • Only one seat will be allotted to each candidate depending on his rank, marks, category and availability of seats.
  • Option to reject (or not accept) the allocated seat-Candidates who want to reject the allocated seat can do so as follows:
  1. By NOT remitting the seat acceptance fee (and not report at the reporting center)
  2. If the seat acceptance fee has already been remitted, by not reporting at the Reporting Center. Seat acceptance fee will be refunded to such candidates. Candidates who reject allocated seat cannot participate anymore in Joint Seat Allocation for the ensuing academic year.
  • The NITs reserve 50% of their seats for students from their state i.e. Home State Quota. The other 50% is thrown open for candidates from all over India.
  • The candidates have to fill up their choice for engineering as also architecture colleges at the same time to avoid vacant seats at the end of the allotment process. Such candidates will get their highest preference be it an engineering or architecture college according to their marks and rank.
  • Those Union Territories that do not have a NIT such as Lakshadweep, Kandvi, Daman and Diu, Andaman and Dadra and Nagar Haveli will receive Home State Quota at the nearest NIT. Seats reserved for students hailing from such UTs are supernumerary. These candidates will be awarded seats over and above the Home State Quota seats of the respective NITs.
  • Dual Reporting is a process under which candidates may report twice, and can switch seat allocated in one institute with the seat allocated in another one. Applicants will require this Dual Reporting if they want to change their allotment of seats from NITs, IIITs or Other GFTIs to an IIT/ ISM. Same rule applies if the candidate wants to change his seat from an IIT/ ISM to another of the above institutes. Candidates who will fail to do so will end up losing the seat in both.
  • IITs and ISMs conduct preparatory courses of one-year duration for SC, ST and PwD candidates. If some seats are left vacant, the limited number of candidates are admitted to this preparatory course on the basis of further relaxation of admission criteria.
  • If there are less number of seats available under a particular category in an academic program than the number of candidates with the same category-wise rank seeking admission to the program, then all those candidates will be offered seats by creating a requisite number of supernumerary seats.
  • A candidate who has already accepted a seat allotted by JoSAA can withdraw the seat by reporting at a reporting center before the last round of seat allocation. Candidates who have exercised ‘withdraw option’ will not be considered for subsequent rounds of seat allotment. Seat acceptance fee will be refunded to these candidates after deducting the processing charges of INR1000/-. There is no option of withdrawing an accepted/allotted seat after the announcement of the last round of seat allocation.
