From the Desk of Chairman, CSAB-2017

Dear students, I congratulate all of you for becoming eligible to participate in JoSAA-2017.

The joint admission process for NIT + System (NITs, IIITs and GFTIs) and IITs through a common portal of JoSAA is going to be held in third consecutive year in 2017. Our aim is to fill all the seats of NITs, IIITs and GFTIs through a fair and transparent process which shall also take care of convenience of students.

I wish to highlight the important features of the seat allocation process for admission to NIT+ system and IITs for JoSAA-2017.

This year 1220746 students have appeared for JEE (Main) 2017 and 221738 students qualified for JEE (Advance) 2017. This year also the seat allocation process will be online like previous years and common for both, NIT+ system and IITs. However there are some specific changes which the candidates must carefully observe by going through the brochure and website carefully. The seat allocation process this year would involve seven normal rounds to be conducted by JoSAA-2017 for admission to NIT+ System and IITs, which will be followed by a Special Vacant Seats Filling Round to be conducted by CSAB–2017 only for NIT+ System. Further details of seat allocation process (Business Rules) and other norms including the relevant information of entire counselling process such as registration, choice filling, seat allotment result etc. are available on the portal https://josaa.nic.in. I am sure the JoSAA-2017 seat allocation process will provide a simple and efficient way of admission to the students. I once again take this opportunity to wish all the aspiring candidates and other stakeholders the very best wishes.
