This year due to the delay in declaring class 12 results by state boards, there was much more delay in the admissions for IIT's NIT's and many more institutions. To overcome this problem all the state boards have agreed to declare the class 12 results by May 31st every year without fail.
This news has brought a relief to all the students who are stuck between the results and admissions. HRD ministry suggested this to all the the state boards to avoid the lag created by delay in declaring results. This often delays the councelling for admissions to technical institutes which are centrally funded. These counselling are done on the basis of Join Entrance Examination(JEE)
Every year the results from state board's for class 12 is delayed by a month compared to other boards. This delay leads postponement of all the other process related to central government institutes. The counselling of the national level exams is delayed, this in turns delays the admission for the Institutes which are based on the central government. Sometimes this also results in non completion of syllabus in some institutes as the date for the 1st semester exams cant be delayed much.
But the above agreement of state boards for declaring the class 12 before May 31st of every year has eased out many processes.
