New Delhi: The All India Council for Education, an autonomous organisation under the Union Human Resource Development Ministry, is planning to give 7 chances for JEE (Advanced) instead of 5 that was given until last year. The government intends to accommodate more students as many seats remain vacant after 5 rounds of counselling. The ministry feels that some more students who either miss it by a margin or who change their mind at the last moment will get the admission if given a few more chances.

Sources in the ministry said that the government decided to give 2 more chances of counselling for JEE (Advanced) in order to fill up the vacant seats, which are sizable after counselling is over every year. However, the time given for the counselling will remain the same so that the admission procedure is completed within the stipulated time period. There have been instances for the past several years when seats remained vacant.

After the last year’s joint counselling of Indian Institute of Technology, National Institute of Technology and funded organisations, were left with 73 vacant seats. Out of these 73, IIT (BHU) alone had 38 vacant seats while the NITs could not fill 1,518 seats.

Similarly, the Indian School of Mines (Dhanbad), which got the status of an IIT last year, had 23 seats vacant. There are around 20 institutes known as Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) run by the government and non-government support where around 407 seats remained vacant until the completion of counselling. The worst condition was with the -financed institutions where out of 3,873 seats only 2,610 seats were blocked. Similarly, every year seats in these technical institutions remain vacant.

So the ministry decided to give 2 more chances for counselling so that students interested could be accommodated in the seats remaining vacant. One more chance could also be given to such students who change their mind at the last moment.
