Yes, you will definately go through counselling to get a seat. However, as your rank will be among the last, you will not get a decent branch like ME, CSE, IT, Chem. or civil. You will be able to get 3-4 branches, which will definately not be suitable to you as these generally are not opted by students. Maybe they do not have much scope, or not much valuable.

Hi Harish,
Cut off is the last's person marks who got the seat last year.
This year it might be different but yeah if you get above cut off means you have got the seat according to last year's counselling.

Hey Harish,
Just to let you know that the cut-off that is anounced,for example like last year it was about 126 for CML(Common Merit List) is not really the cutoff marks above which you would get a seat,it is just that everyone scoring more than this will be listed in the ranklist the actual marks for the last student admitted can be substantially higher.Last year that mark was over 156 if I recall correclty.The students who score marks in between these scores can take admissions in other institutes that offer admission based on JEE Advanced.So if you are talking about that second”cut off”,then what Arun Kumar has mentioned aptly fits.. 
Hope I was able to help :-)
