Counselling Process

The counselling process for Engineering Colleges in India is conducted by two major authorities: the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) which is conducted by one of the IITs and the Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) conducted by any of the NITs.

These processes are aimed at providing a fair and transparent system for candidates seeking admission to undergraduate engineering programs in Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs), and other Government Funded Technical Institutes (GFTIs).

Candidates admitted to Josaa Counselling for engineering colleges across India have the option to register for CSAB counselling in case of remaining vacant seats, ensuring additional opportunities for securing admission to esteemed engineering institutions. Here’s an overview of the counselling process conducted by JoSAA :

Josaa Counseling Process

Detailed steps for the JoSAA Counselling are as follows; 

Step 1 Registration: 

In order to participate in JoSAA Counselling Process, eligible candidate should register themselves on the JoSAA Couselling website with following credentials

  • JEE (Advanced) login-id and password for foreign nationals who did not appear in JEE (Main).

After logging in with the provided credentials, candidates are asked to fill out personal and academic information such as name, age, gender, qualification, and other specifics.

After filling out the necessary information, candidates can proceed to the choice-filling process.

Step 2 Choice Filling

  • Candidates should carefully order the academic programs when filling out the choices, keeping in mind that only those choices would be used to determine seat allocation.
  • Candidates are given a 10-day window to fill in their choices which include 2 mock seat allocations. This 10-day window will NOT be extended under any circumstances.

Step 3 Choice Locking 

  • Candidates must “lock” their choices on or before the final day of choice filling after selecting their preferred colleges and academic programs.
  • If candidates don’t lock their choices, the most recent choices saved will be locked automatically when the selection deadline arrives.
  • The choices made by a candidate cannot be changed once they have been locked.  before the choice-filling deadline, candidates may edit their selections by first submitting a request to unlock in the online JoSAA portal. The registered mobile and email will receive an OTP that can be used to verify the unlock request. The candidate’s options will become available after being verified.

Steps 4  Seat Allotment and Seat Acceptance:

  • The candidate is responsible for logging into the JoSAA portal and verifying whether a seat has been assigned in a specific round of seat allocation.
  • If the candidate is given a seat, they must complete “Online Reporting” before the last date or time allotted for the given round—the round in which the seat is allocated—in order to accept the seat.
  • Once all of the documents have been verified, the assigned seat will either be confirmed or canceled. To accept a seat that has been allotted to them, a candidate must download the “Initial Seat Allotment Intimation Slip” and follow the instructions.

Step A Accept the Seat:  The candidate must accept the seat offered and choose one of the following options for the academic program for the next round: “Freeze,” “Slide,” or “Float”

Step B Upload the documents: The candidate must upload each of the necessary documents  listed on the JoSAA Portal.

Step C : Pay the Seat Acceptance Fee:

  • If the candidate does not pay the seat acceptance fee, the documents they have uploaded cannot be verified. The admission fee is distinct from the seat acceptance fee and varies by institute and candidate category.

Step 5: Document Verification: 

Students must get their documentation verified in this step in accordance with the schedule. Verification of the documents will be done online. Students won’t be permitted to report to the designated location for final admission until all of their documentation has been verified.

Step 6: Reporting the college:
