Stage 3:  Online Choice filling, Saving, and Locking
Here, you must list your preferred institutions and branches in decreasing order of preference.

The number of seats available and a list of disciplines offered will be shown based on your eligibility.
Enter as many options as you are allowed to according to your preference.
Before locking in your final selections, you can rearrange your options as many times as you like, edit previously filled options, and add new options.
Note: It’s important to remember that your previously filled choices will be regarded as final if you don’t submit them within the allotted time. Students taking the Engineering & Architecture course and those taking the Pharmacy course must fill out their choices separately by clicking on the relevant links.

For B.E./B.Tech, B.Arch, and B.Plan students- 

  • One seat will be assigned per the student’s preference list based on his choice and merit list after the combined choice filling is completed for all courses.
  • If there are still seats available after the first round of seat allocation, a student may be given a seat with a higher preference. They must also pay the security deposit all at once.
  • Candidates only need to complete one registration form, one list of course options, and are encouraged to select as many options as possible based on their priorities.
  • As a result, they will have a better chance of getting a preferred seat. Performance in JEE Main Papers 1, 2, and 3 will be taken into consideration.
  • The candidates’ preferences and the JEE Main merit list will be the only criteria used to allocate seats.

For Pharmacy Students-

  • Visit the official website, fill out the registration and choice filling forms for pharmacy students, and,
  • Clicking “Apply” will take you to a page where you must enter your information, including your full name, father’s and mother’s names, dates of birth, complete mailing address, gender, state of residence, category, and percentage of your class 12th grade grade average.
  • Uploading Documents: Include scanned copies of the certificates for your state of residence, your category (if applicable), your PwD status, and your date of birth.
  • Fill in your choice from the provided list based on your performance. Try to choose from as many options as you can to improve your chances of getting the open seat. Keep in mind that you will only be able to see institutions in your domicile state.

  • Locking the Planning, Engineering, and Architecture options.
  • Enter your password, check that your choices are locked, and click the LOCK button to secure them.
  • Be aware that saving a choice does not automatically lock it; for instance, a choice that has been saved but not locked can be changed at a later time. A locked and saved choice, however, cannot be changed after the fact.
  • Your most recent saved choice will be taken into account as the final one if you forget to lock your selections. Print out the terms and conditions and your locked choices, then sign them. At the designated center’s reporting time, you must present this document.

Stage-4: Seat Allotment
The candidate’s choice from stage 2 will be processed centrally in this step, and seats will be assigned according to JEE Main AIR and the candidate’s preferred choices in order of merit.
The outcome will be made public on the CSAB’s official website.
Students whose seats have been confirmed must personally report to their Home State CSAB NEUT Reporting Centers with a demand draught made out to “NIT Tiruchirapalli CSAB 20.”
According to a policy, seat allocation for online reservations will take place in two rounds:

The candidate will be assigned a seat in the first round, and the name of the institute and branch will be included in the result that is posted online.
Seats will be assigned in the Second Round based on the seats that are still available at the end of the first list. It is advised to fill out or modify the choices in the first round since no new choice filling will be permitted in the second.
For students in the SC/ST/Reserved categories, first seats will be assigned based on open seats in terms of AIR; however, if they are unsuccessful in obtaining a seat under the open category, they will be given consideration for seats in the reserved category.

Stage-5: Reporting at the Designated Center
Candidates must appear in person at the designated centre with all required paperwork and a demand draught for the security deposits. Candidates who receive seats are required to submit a demand draught for INR 3000 made out to the CSAB NEUT conducting authority. Students who choose not to enrol in the specified college will receive a refund of this amount, which will be treated as refundable security. The college’s entire tuition must be paid directly to the organisation.

Stage-6: Reporting at the Institutions
Candidates who are satisfied with their designated institution and do not wish to attend the second round of seat allocation should report to their assigned college in accordance with the admission schedule of the assigned college after the announcement of the list of seats allotted in the first round.

But in order to attend the second round, applicants must wait for the publication of the second list of seat allotments. Then, in accordance with their admission schedule, they must physically visit the institution to which they have been assigned. Candidates whose first seat allotment letter is for the second round of seat allocation will ultimately be rejected.

Frequently Asked Questions
Ques. After rejecting or withdrawing the assigned seat, can I take part in the joint seat allocation process again in the following round?

Ans. No. You are no longer eligible to take part in the seven JoSAA rounds of seat allocation for the academic year 2022–2023. You may, however, only take part in the NIT + System institute-only Special Vacant Seat Filling Round organised by CSAB.

Ques. Will the choices I made in JoSAA carry over or will I have to make new choices in Special Round?

Ans. A candidate will need to reapply and fill out their selections from the seat matrix of NIT + System Institutes because the Special Round is a process that is only run by CSAB 2022 for NIT + System and is distinct from JoSAA.

Ques. What distinguishes JoSSA from CSAB?

Ans. JoSSA’s counselling sessions are different from CSAB’s. After the JoSSA admissions process for IITs, NITs, and other engineering colleges has been completed, CSAB holds a few special rounds of interviews to fill the open seats at those institutions.
