Ques. Will my choices filled in JoSAA be carried forward or I will have to fill choices again in Special Round?

Ques. Can I participate again in joint seat allocation in the next round once I reject/withdraw the allocated seat?

Ans. No. You cannot participate anymore in seat allocation for the academic year 2021-22 for 7 JoSAA rounds. However, you can participate in the Special Vacant Seat Filling Round conducted by CSAB only for NIT + System institutes.

Ques. Will there be any other round after seven JoSAA Rounds?

Ans. There will be one Special Vacant Seats Filling round after regular JoSAA rounds only for NIT + Institutes. Details of this special round will be available on the website
