JEE Main Online Choice Filling Details
CBSE and CSAB are two different and independent boards playing their unique roles in JEE Main Admissions 2013. CBSE conducted JEE (Main) examination and published the merit list. CSAB only uses the merit list published by CBSE for seat allocation purposes. CSAB is not responsible for any error either in marks or in merit ranks of JEE (Main) -2013.

Government Technical Institutes (GFTIs) are National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT and IITDM), Centrally Funded Technical Institutes (CFTIs) and State Funded Technical Institutes. Private Institutes are called Self Financed Technical Institutes (SFTIs).
