Why Did NTA Release JEE Main Helpline Numbers?

The NTA released JEE Main helpline numbers to help candidates get accurate information about their JEE Main examinations straight from the source. There is a lot of misinformation or conflicting information on the internet, which can lead to confusion. So, to help students get accurate information or to even verify information that they have seen elsewhere, the helpline numbers were introduced. Today candidates can use the numbers to find more information about the examination dates using the helplines.

Given that JEE Main is now held in two distinct sessions, candidates can be confused with conflicting information about examination dates and centres. With the helpline numbers, now they have a way to crosscheck and ensure they are prepared for the right examination dates.

The helpline numbers can also be useful in helping students clear any other doubts regarding their examination. Whether they need to appear for session 2 or what the process would be to appear for session 2 all of these questions can be answered on the helpline numbers. These are the main reasons why the helpline numbers were introduced.

However, given the sheer number of students that will be appearing for JEE Main 2024, it is good that you also keep the support email address handy. Why? Because it might be difficult to get the phone lines open at the time of need because of high number of candidates. So, if you are unable to get your queries answered on phone, be sure to get send an email to NTA as well.
