The JEE Main Counselling 2024 is the last step to securing admission into an engineering college after the aspirants have cracked the JEE Main 2024 exam.

To get the overview, last year, the counselling was conducted online for all candidates beginning from June 19, 2023. Once allotted a college through counselling, candidates will be required to visit the college for verification of their documents and confirmation of a seat.

The JEE Main Counselling 2024 involves three processes:

  • JoSAA: This is the combined counselling for candidates who qualify for both JEE Main and JEE Advanced. JoSAA alone allots the seats available in 110 engineering institutes, including various IITs, IIITs, NITs, and other GFTIs.
  • CSAB NEUT: This is the counselling held for supernumerary seats available in the North Eastern states and Union Territories. It is organised by the Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB).
  • CSAB SFTI: This counselling process is conducted separately for 18 SFTIs (Self Financing Technical Institutes) by the Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB). The allocation of seats is strictly based on the order of preference given by the applicants based on their JEE Main AIR in Papers I and II, respectively.
