The JEE Main 2024 Counselling schedule is yet to be announced. However,  JoSAA Counselling is expected to be held on June 10, 2024, tentatively at josaa.nic.in.  JoSAA is the primary platform for allocating seats to all participating institutions, including the prestigious IITs. CSAB is a secondary option that provides an opportunity to fill remaining seats in specific institutions after JoSAA is complete. Hence CSAB Counselling will start after the JoSAA Counselling. The exact dates will be notified by the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA), responsible for conducting the counselling process.


It is important to note that the counselling dates may vary for candidates appearing in different sessions of the JEE Main exam. Therefore, it is crucial to keep track of the JEE Main 2024 Counselling schedule based on your exam session.

What is the Difference Between JoSAA and CSAB Counselling?

JoSAA and CSAB are both important entities involved in the seat allocation process for engineering and other technical courses in India after the JEE Main Exam, but they cater to different stages and institutions:


JoSAA (Joint Seat Allocation Authority) Counselling 

  • Conducts six rounds of seat allocation for IITs, NITs, IIITs, GFTIs, and other participating institutions.

  • Eligible candidates must have qualified in JEE Main and JEE Advanced.

  • Offers various branches and specialisations within these institutions.

  • Once JoSAA completes its rounds, vacant seats in some NITs, IIITs, and other institutions may arise.


CSAB (Central Seat Allocation Board) Counselling 

  • Conducts two special rounds of seat allocation only for NITs, IIITs, and other participating institutions (excluding IITs).

  • These rounds are specifically for filling the vacant seats remaining after JoSAA's completion.

  • Eligible candidates include:

    • Those who did not participate in JoSAA counseling.

    • Those who participated in JoSAA but did not get a seat or want to upgrade their seat.

  • Offers the same branches and specializations as available in the CSAB institutes during JoSAA.
