This time, the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Rourkela will conduct the central seat allotment process in various NITs, IIEST, IIIT, and Planning and Architecture Schools.
The institute will co-organize the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA), which will include 6-rounds of seat allotment counseling.
The JoSAA counseling registration process for various rounds of seat allocation will begin on September 12, i.e. The CISAB-Special Round will be held on October 24 at the same time, and the entire counseling process is expected to be completed by November 6.
According to Mukesh Kumar Gupta, chairperson of the institute’s local organizing committee, some changes have been made this time for the convenience of the candidates. He stated, “This time, the CSAB has established multilingual phone lines in Hindi, English, Oriya, Bangla, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam to assist parents and students with the local language counseling process. Support documents in multiple languages will be available, as will a special helpdesk for the differently-abled.”
He also stated that 22 help centers have been established in all states and union territories to assist students in their native language. In addition, the institute is using social media to disseminate information about the counseling process. Information is given with a special focus on students from socially and economically disadvantaged groups.
“Our team is making special efforts to help people from rural backgrounds with linguistic barrier,” he said. “As students who want to appear in NIT, IIEST, IIIT, SPA, or GFITs but are having difficulty obtaining information about seat allocation can do so here.”
The Ministry of Education has established the Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) 2022, with the Director of NIT Rourkela as Chairperson. Similarly, the Joint Admission Board (JAB) has been charged with seat allocation in IITs. The chairperson of the JAB will be the Director of IIT Bombay. Six rounds of seat allocation will be carried out by the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA), which is made up of the CSAB and the JAB. After that, there will be 2 extra CSAB special rounds to fill the seats that are vacant.
