JEE Main 2020 Counselling (Started): Check JoSSA Counselling Dates, Registration, Seat Allotment

JEE Main Counselling 2020 has commenced from 6 October 2020. The Joint Seat Allocation Authority is undertaking the entire counselling process. Candidates are required to register themselves. The process has already started. The last date to register is 15 October 2020. JEE Main has three counselling processes namely CSAB NEUT, CSAB SFTI AND JoSSA.

For admissions in IITs, IIITs, NITs and GFTIs, it is JoSSA who is responsible for the entire counselling process. The JEE Main counselling process for 2020 will be an online process. The All India Rank (AIR) of the candidates will determine the college that will be allotted under JEE Main counselling 2020. A worth noting thing here is that JEE Main rank is only applicable for seeking admissions in IIITs, GFTIs and NITs. For IITs all over India, you have to qualify JEE Advanced, first. The preferences filled by the candidates at the time of registration will be an important role in the JEE Main counselling process.
