The foundation team of CSAB 2020 comprises of representatives from MHRD, directors of IITs and NITs. CSAB 2020 is closely working along with JAB and NIC to make the JoSAA 2020 admission procedure and counseling procedure smooth.
These UG admissions will be given based on All India Rank of the aspirants in the JEE (Main) exam. Over 35,000 seats in more than 500 courses will be offered to candidates in CSAB 2020.
The CSAB will further be responsible for adjusting supernumerary seats for female candidates to ensure that at least 20% of girl students seek admission to IIEST Shibpur and NITs in this academic session. CSAB is further responsible for the execution of a 10% reservation of EWS in IIEST Shibpur, NITs, and some participating GFTIs.
In view of the coronavirus pandemic, the physical presence for the counseling procedure has been eradicated.
Professor Tripathi said that suitable amendments have been encompassed in rules of the business in terms of online reporting, online admission process, and online document verification, thereby maintaining the sanctuary and safety of stakeholders and candidates. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Ministry of Education this year has reduced the minimum 75% or 65% (SC/ST) marks so that more number of seats can be enrolled in.
Seat allotment procedure this year will encompass six rounds of seat allocation in JoSAA to be carried by JoSAA 2020 counseling for admission to NIT+ and IITs from 6th October to 9th November. This will be commemorated by two rounds to be conducted by CSAB 2020 only for the NIT+ system.
