JEE Counselling Process & IIT JEE 2014 Counselling Dates


Table of Content


IIT JEE Counselling DatesJEE Counselling Process will see a significant change from this year. Last year, separate counseling took place for the IITs and ISM Dhanbad (for students who cracked JEE Advanced) and NITs, IIITs, and other engineering colleges (for students who cracked JEE Main). Since the students who appeared in JEE Advanced exam were among the top rank holders of JEE Main Merit Lists, many of them received offers both from IITs and NITs. They chose one of the allotted seats. As a result, 600 seats at IITs and NITs fell vacant.

From this year, common counseling will take place for all government-funded engineering colleges. Hence, in the counseling of JEE 2014, all the students who have cracked JEE Main and JEE Advanced will be offered seats in a centralized manner. It will help eliminate the chances of discrepancies in seat allotment to students.

 Tentative List of Courses available at various IITs and ISM Dhanbad!


  • ISM Dhanbad does not accept female candidates in its Mining Engineering and Mining Machinery Engineering courses. If female candidates are interested in these courses, they can apply at IIT Kharagpur and IIT-BHU.

  • Candidates interested in Architecture courses at the IITs need to pass an Architecture Aptitude Test (AAT). AAT 2014 will be conducted on June 26, 2014 at all the seven Zonal IITs. Students will have register online for AAT 2014 separately as well as indicate B. Arch at IIT Kharagpur or IIT Roorkee as their course choice during online counseling. AAT results will be declared by June 29, 2014.

Step 3: Seat Allotment

Seat allocation at various engineering colleges, including the IITs, will be done strictly on the basis of All India rank (AIR) and category rank of candidates and their course and institute choices.

Only JEE Advanced qualifiers will be eligible for admission to IITs and ISM Dhanbad this year. From next year, only single-step JEE exam will be conducted for all government-funded engineering colleges.

Case Study:

For ABC course in an XYZ engineering college, there are 50 seats. 250 students indicate their preference for the course. In such a case, for all the ‘Open’ or ‘General’ Category seats, student with the highest AIR will be selected, followed by the student with second highest AIR and so on. If SC, ST, OBC (NCL) or PwD students make it to these seats, they will not be considered a part of merit lists for reserved categories.

For reserved seats, students with top category ranks will be considered.

Highest AIR (or category rank in case of reserved category seats) of the chosen candidates is called the ‘Opening Rank’ for the course.

Lowest AIR (or category rank in case of reserved category seats) of the chosen candidates is called the ‘Closing Rank’ for the course. Students with rank below the Closing Rank will not be selected for the course.

Scores corresponding to the Closing Rank are known as JEE cutoff scores of that course.

Step 4: Reporting to Allotted Colleges

Once the seats are allotted, candidates should contact their Zonal IITs (if they are admitted to IITs) or their respective colleges immediately. Candidates need to be there in person for document verification and fee payment process.

Seats of candidates who fail to report to the Zonal IIT before the given deadline will be forfeited.

Students need to carry Originals and one attested copy of each of the following for document verification:

  • Attested copy of the Passport with name, photo and nationality (for foreign nationals),

  • Category Certificate (for OBC (NCL), SC, ST, PwD, and DS candidates) in the format prescribed in the IIT JEE Information Brochure,

  • Duly filled Application Form (Annexure 1 of the Information Brochure),

  • Duly filled Medical Examination Report (Annexure 2 of the Information Brochure),

  • Mark Sheet and Certificate of Passing of Class XII or Qualifying Exam,

  • Original Admit Card of the JEE Main or JEE Advanced exam (as applicable),

  • Printout of the Seat Allotment letter,

  • Date of Birth proof, which can be Class X certificate or Birth Certificate, and

  • Registration Fees of Rs 60,000 in the form of Demand Draft. For SC, ST category students, registration fees will be Rs 20,000. DD should be drawn in favor of Organizing Chairman, JEE (Advanced)-2013, payable at New Delhi. It will be adjusted against the tuition fee which has to be paid at the time of admission.

Physical Fitness Requirements

  1. At the time of counselling, students need to produce a physical fitness certificate from a registered doctor in the prescribed format. The fitness certificate should state that students are fit enough for the course in which are enrolling.

  2. Students of Mining Engineering, Mining Machinery Engineering, Petroleum Engineering and Integrated M.Sc programs in Geology and Geophysics need an additional certificate from a registered eye doctor stating that:

  • They do not have any form of colour blindness, and

  • They fulfill visual acuity standards as stated by DGMS Circular 14 of 1972 with or without glasses.

Do note that people with one-eyed vision are not allowed to work underground.

Step 5: Provisional Admission of Students

Once the documents of students are verified and they pay the initial fees, colleges issue a final allotment letter to students and they are granted provisional admission. However, if students fail to meet other eligibility criteria, their admission will be deemed cancelled.

Similarly, if their documents are found to be fake at any point of time, they will not only be told to leave college but may also face legal consequences.
