This year the number of students decreased in JoSAA IIT NIT Joint Counselling notification latest news update 2023 in hindi

The major cause for this is considered to be the compulsion of board eligibility for IIT-NIT Admission this year because this year students must have 75 percent in 12th board or top-20 percentile according to the respective board's category for admission to IIT-NIT has been made compulsory. Concession was being given for the last three years and 12th passed students were eligible for admission.

After the release of the board top-20 percentile score and due to the requirement of 75 percent eligibility announced earlier, students have stopped taking interest in counseling considering themselves ineligible even after getting a better rank.

One of the causes for this is that after seat allotment, the students have to deposit a counseling fee of around 40,000 rupees & after that the allotted seat is confirmed only after checking the documents. In such a condition, there is every possibility of cancellation of allotment in case of non-fulfilment of eligibility.
