Chennai: The Joint Seat Allocation Authoity (JoSAA) has announced the First Round Seat allotment today (28 June 2017). Nearly 1.5 Lakh successful candidates filled their choices through JoSAA for their preferred programs and the total number of choices hovered around 1.7 crores.

Out of these, 36,114 candidates got seats in the first round across 97 institutes and 11,000 candidates were offered seats in IITs. Close to 18,000 candidates got seats in NITs, about 3000 in IIITs and about 4,000 in other GFTIs. The opening and closing ranks of the institutes can be found at the following link : http://josaa.nic.in/result/result/OpeningClosingRank.aspx

Out of 11, 000 candidates with seat offers from IITs, 994 female candidates were shortlisted in the first round for admission in various IITs. It is heartening to note that 5 qualified candidates have been offered seats in various IITs through DS category wherein the children of defence/paramilitary personnel killed or permanently disabled in action during war or peacetime operations get preferential seat allocation. It is equally encouraging to note that 46 candidates were offered Preparatory Course in the first round for admission to IITs.

The MHRD plan of attracting foreign students to IITs bore fruit this year as 2 candidates were offered seats in IITs. Though the number of candidates under foreign category is small, it is believed that there will be better participation from foreign candidates in the coming years.

Now, the first round of seat acceptance for admission into IITs, NITs, IITs and other GFTIs conducted through Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) is all set to begin on 29 June and will continue till 3 July. All the reporting centre institutes are geared up to welcome the prospective students. JoSAA will continue to allocate seats for 7 rounds over 3 weeks so as to minimize vacancy in these elite institutes.
