IITs and NITs to have joint seat allocation process this year

IITs and NITs will conduct joint seat allocation process for admission this year.

Around 80 IITs, NITs, IIITs and other centrally funded technical institutes with more thatn 32,000 seats will be available for students to choose from.

The HRD Ministry recently set up a joint seat allocation authority to regulate the common process. It will meet this weekend to finalize details of the process before releasing an official notification.

Unlike individual processes followed by both sets of institutions for many years, all courses offered by these institutions will be available on the same online platform from this year.

This is the second major move implemented by the ministry to bring together tech institutions in the country.

Earlier, the Centre had worked towards holding a common entrance test for engineering institutions across the country, JEE (Main). It was later decided to have a two-level screening test for IITs.
