What is JoSAA?

JoSAA, or Joint Seat Allocation Authority, is a body created by the Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD). It handles the joint seat allocation for admissions in over 100 institutes, such as IITs, NITs, IIITs, and Other-Government Funded Technical Institutes (Other-GFTIs). The goal is to streamline the admission process for these institutes through a single platform, reducing the number of vacant engineering seats nationwide. This ensures a smoother, more effective, efficient, transparent, and faster admission process. JoSAA manages the admission process for 23 IITs, 31 NITs, 26 IIITs, and 38 Other-Government Funded Technical Institutes (Other-GFTIs). The seat allotment in the seven rounds of JoSAA Counselling in 2024 is based on the merits of candidates and their preferences for courses and colleges.
