CSAB to allocate engineering seats

The Human Resource Development Ministry has set up a central board to allocate seats in the centrally funded technical institutes, except Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), to those who cleared the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE-Main), conducted last month.

The final all-India merit list is expected to be released by the Central Board of Secondary Education before July. The JEE-Main result, which was announced by the CBSE on May 7, only reflected the scores of the candidates not their ranking and allocation of seats.

The final list will reflect allocations of seats and scores, based on performance in JEE-Main and class XII board marks, normalised under a formula, sources told Deccan Herald.
The Board conducted the JEE-Main (pen and paper mode) on April 7 for admissions to 30 National Institutes of Technology (NITs), four Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) and a range of other engineering colleges. The online test was held between April 8 and April 25.

Seat allocation board

The Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB), to be headed by the director NIT-Rourkela, will comprise directors of all the NITs, IIITs and other centrally funded institutions as members. One official each from the HRD Ministry, CBSE, AICTE will also be part of it. For the admission to these colleges, the CBSE has decided to use the JEE-Mains performance and the normalised board performance in the 60:40 ratio.

The CSAB shall ensure compilation and dissemination of information relating to the participating institutions, highlighting specifics in case of each of the institutes.
While ensuring proper scheduling and transparency of the admission process, the CSAB will also look into grievances of the candidates and court cases.
