A Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) 2018 has been set up by the Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD) to manage and regulate admissions in 97 institutes for the academic year 2018 - 2019. This includes 22 IITs, IIT ISM, 31 NITs, 23 IIITs and 20 Other-Government Funded Technical Institutes (Other-GFTIs). Admission to all the academic programs offered by these institutes will be made through a single platform.
All candidates who have appeared in JEE (Main) 2018 are eligible to register for seat allocation in NITs/IIITs/GFTIs (except IITs & ISM). All candidates who have declared qualified in JEE (Advanced) 2018 are eligible to register for seat allocation in all participating institutes.
Candidates may fill-in their choices of institutes and branches in decreasing order of their preference. Candidates are strongly urged to fill-in as many choices as possible.
Candidates MUST “lock” their choices. For candidates who do NOT lock their choices, their last saved choices will be locked automatically when the time-window for filling-in of choices closes.
JoSAA will conduct Seven rounds that is 1st through 7th rounds of seat allocation for academic programs offered by institutes under JoSAA 2018.
Candidates getting first allotment at any NIT, IIIT or Other-GFTI must report at the nearest CSAB Reporting Centre (for list, visit JoSAA website) with fee deposit e-challan and documents for verification and confirmation of provisional admission.
Candidates getting first allotment in any IIT/ISM must report at IIT Reporting Centre (for complete list, visit JoSAA website) with fee deposit e-challan and documents for verification and confirmation of provisional admission.
At the time of reporting, a candidate is required to fill option for ‘freeze’, ‘slide’ or ‘float’ the choice of academic program.
If in a subsequent round, a candidate’s allotment from NIT/IIIT/GFTI changes to IIT/ ISM, the candidate MUST report ONCE AGAIN at an IIT reporting centre. Similarly, if a candidate’s allotment from IIT/ISM changes to NIT/IIIT/GFTI, the candidate MUST report ONCE AGAIN at any NIT/IIIT/GFTI reporting centre. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of seats allocated in both NIT/IIIT/GFTI and IIT/ISM.
Candidates who do NOT register within the specified time window WILL NOT be able to seek admission for this academic year
Candidates who do NOT fill-in choices within the specified time window WILL NOT be able to seek admission for this academic year
Two times reporting required in case of seat allotment changes from NIT/IIIT/GFTI to IITs/ISM and vice versa.
Once filled-in, choices CANNOT be modified later.
