With JEE (Main) rankings delayed, common counselling for IIT and NIT in limbo


NEW DELHI: Common counselling for admissions to NITs and IITs was conceived as a noble idea but has turned out to be a nightmare for children and parents as the wait is getting endless. 

Till late on Tuesday, CBSE that conducted this year's JEE (Main) could not make public the All India Rank. That meant, Joint Admission Board that conducts JEE (Advanced) also had to postpone ranking since Joint Seat Allocation (JoSA) had to be done. "Registration and Filling-in of choices in JoSAA portal can begin only after CBSE announces JEE (Main) 2015 Paper-1 and Paper-2 ranks. After CBSE announces the ranks, it will take at least 2 to 3 hours to open the JoSAA portal to the candidates for online registration and choice filling-in at JoSAA site," the IIT JEE (Advanced) website announced. JEE (Main) rank list was scheduled to be declared on June 24. 

Senior officers in the CBSE say the delay has been caused by "external factors." "Since ranking has to give 40% weightage to class XII results, we realized results of state boards do not come at the same time," he said. "Work is going on relentlessly and we will have the ranking very soon, may be on Wednesday. We had asked state boards to give results by June 22," he added. 

However, HRD ministry sources say the entire operation could have been planned properly by the CBSE. For instance, state boards could have been told to declare class XII results earlier than previous years. One HRD official said, "A bigger problem could be in store when actual joint allocation begins. There will be technical glitch and that could delay the process even further." He says that if further delay takes place IITs/NITs could even take the plea that common counselling should be done from next year. 

Within HRD, there is also a view that NITs/IITs are not keen on joint counselling. In fact, the two fell in line only when the ministry reiterated in Delhi high court that it will be done from this year. NITs/IITs wanted this to happen from 2016.
