Provide cut-off mark to shorten delay in IIT, NIT admissions: JEE tells schools

New Delhi

The Council of Boards of School Education (COBSE), after conducting a meeting, has asked schools to provide the top 20 percentile cut-off to JEE Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JOSAA) for class XII examination results before June 10 in a bid to enure no delay in admission to Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institute of Technology (NITs) and other engineering colleges. 

"IITs and other institutes have informed the COBSE about the problem they face during the admission process if school boards delay this. June 10 should be last date for providing such information which is vital for the admission process," said an official, seeking anonymity.

What is JOSAA 2016?

Joint Seat Allocation Authority or JOSAA 2016 has been set up by the Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD) to manage and regulate the joint seat allocation for admissions to 92 institutes for the academic year 2016-17. This includes 22 IITs, ISM, 31 NITs, 20 IITs and 18 Other-Government Funded Technical Institutes.

Important instructions for students:
