This includes 23 IITs, 31 NITs, 26 IIITs, and 33 other government-funded technical institutes. What is JoSAA counselling? It is responsible for seat allocation to candidates who qualify for JEE Main and JEE Advanced 2023 and wish to get admitted to IITs, NITs, GFTIs, or IIITs.

The candidates must choose the institutions and courses according to their liking, as they will be considered in the seat assignment session. The final allotment, however, is merit-based.

Dual Reporting in JoSAA 2023 Counselling

The candidate will have to report to the center twice under JoSAA 2023. It will only be applicable if the allotment has been upgraded at some rounds of counseling. If the candidates were first allocated a seat at the NITs and got upgraded to IITs or any other institute, then the candidates will have to report for IIITs and the NIT rounds.

In simple words, if a candidate's seat is changed from IIT to NIT+system and vice versa, they have to report at both of the reporting centers one after the other to make sure that their admission is confirmed. Failure to do so will result in the cancellation of the candidature of the applicant.
