Detailed seat matrix is expected today, Organizing Chairperson of JEE Advanced 2023 Bishnupada Mandal told The Indian Express.
A total of 17,385 seats are available in all 23 Indian Institute of Technology (IITs) across India, indicating a slight increase from last year’s total of 16,598 seats.
Prof. Bishnupada Mandal, Organizing Chairperson of JEE (Advanced) 2023, stated, “Based on the information available to us, the total number of seats available for admissions in IITs this year is 17,385, including the female supernumerary seats. However, JoSAA will declare a detailed seat matrix on Monday.”
The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE)-Advanced result was announced on Sunday, revealing that 43,773 out of 180,372 candidates successfully cleared the entrance test for admission to undergraduate programs in the 23 IITs. Among the qualified candidates, 7,509 are females.
The registration process for the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) counseling will commence on Monday. However, there is currently no clarity on the detailed seat matrix under JoSAA.
Out of the qualified candidates, 43,605 are Indian nationals, while 13 are foreign nationals. Additionally, 155 overseas citizens of India (OCI) candidates have qualified for admission to IITs.
Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) / Person of Indian Origin (PIO) card holders who obtained the said status before March 4, 2021, will be treated on par with Indian nationals for the seat allocation process in JoSAA/CSAB-2023 for GEN and GEN-PwD seats. The OCI/PIO candidates will also benefit from female supernumerary seats.
Candidates aspiring to secure admission to IITs and the NIT+ system must attain at least 75% marks in the 12th Class or be in the top 20 percentile in the 12th Class examination conducted by their respective Boards. For SC/ST/PwD students, the qualifying marks would be 65% in the 12th Class examination.
