JoSAA Seat Allotment - Procedures, Important Dates & Cutoffs
JoSAA is an abbreviation for Joint Seat Allocation Authority which is governed by MHRD, India. Once all the results for JEE (Mains & Advanced) are released by NTA, a first round of Seat Allocation is conducted in online mode on JoSAA's website. The Institutions involved in this are IITs, NITs, IIITs, SPAs and CFIs to admit students in UG Engineering/Architecture Courses. Except IITs, all the above mentioned colleges take admissions of NRI/PIO/OCI Students through their SAT Subject Scores (DASA Scheme).
Based on DASA Scheme, each of the dasa participating colleges have 15 % of the seats reserved for NRI/PIO/OCI Students. It also involves a subset i.e. CIWG Scheme in which 1/3rd of the 15% seats of DASA is reserved for NRI Students from Middle East.
Note: According to the latest update from DASA, from session 2021-22 onwards, JEE Mains Rank is mandatory for NRI/ PIO/ OCI/ FN Students to be eligible for DASA & CIWG Schemes. Hence, 2020-21 will be the last year when SAT 2 scores will be considered for DASA/CIWG Scheme.
