New Delhi, June 13: In the first of its initiative, three engineering institutes in Delhi are offering admission to their Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) programmes through joint counselling, which will help students fill a single form each. Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology Delhi (IIIT-D), Delhi Technological University (DTU) and Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women (IGDTUW) are conducting the B.Tech admission through common counselling this year.
These are institutes established by Delhi state government. The registration process will open July 1 and close July 10.
"Students need to apply through the common application form (which will soon be available on jacdelhi.nic.in), pay the requisite fee and fill in their choices," IIIT-D Registrar Ashwani Kumar Kansal, who is also the coordinator for joint admission counselling, said in a statement.
However, the eligibility criteria is different, as IIIT-D would consider students with at least 80 percent marks in aggregate in Class XII (including Physics, Chemistry and Math), 80 percent in Mathematics and a valid JEE Main 2014 score.
While for DTU and IGDTUW a student needs 60 percent marks along with JEE Main 2014 score.
"With the joint counselling process, students will save their precious time. Earlier they had to apply in all institutes separately. The common counselling allows them to directly attend the institute allotted to them. Besides, they need to pay the application fee only once for all the three institutes," added Kansal.
