JEE-ADVANCED Counselling Schedule

The JEE Advanced Counselling serves as a basis for admission of candidates in top engineering institutions. Currently, the counselling process is done by JoSAA (Joint Seat Allocation Authority).

JoSAA has been set up by the Ministry of Human Resources Department to manage and regulate joint seat allocation to 23 IITs, 31 NITs, 23 IIITs, and 20 other Government Funded Technical Institutes.

  • Candidates who have declared qualified in JEE (Adv) 2017 are eligible to register for seat allocation in all participating Institutes.
  • Candidates may fill-in their choices of Institutes and branches in decreasing order of their preference. Candidates are strongly urged to fill-in as many choices as possible.
  • Candidates must “lock” their choices. For candidates who did not lock their choices, the last saved choices will be locked automatically when the time for filling-in of choices closes
  • JoSAA will conduct seven rounds of seat allocation for academic programs offered by Institutes under a time period.
  • Candidates allotted a seat must pay the seat acceptance fee (through e-Challan/SBI NetBanking) and get the documents verified at any reporting center ( for provisional seat acceptance.
  • A candidate, who has already accepted a seat, can withdraw the seat by reporting at a reporting center up to sixth round of seat allocation.
