JoSSA ignoring the seat vacancy issue at IITs/ NITs, as private institutes experience swarm of children for admission
Around 3000 seats still empty at campuses at NITs, IIITs and GFTIs and JoSSA says counseling days are over. What’s with providing a miserable situation to mighty aspirants?
JoSSA was mainly appointed for filling in the vacancy during admissions at NIT/IIT campuses, as every single seat counts. But as students are ditching these campuses and are entitled for fee refund, there has been growing symptoms for more seats to be offered.
But, with the turn of the events, the message posted by JoSSA states that, “JoSAA Counseling is over. There will be no Spot Round from JoSAA 2015. As per the business rule of JoSAA 2015, the candidates who have allotted a seat and reported in any RCs, their Seat Acceptance Fee will not be refunded.”
The also added, “For the vacant seats in NIT+ system, CSAB 2015 will take decision on 5th August, 2015. For more details kindly visit JoSAA web site (josaa.nic.in)/CSAB web site (csab.nic.in) after 5th August 2015.”
The spot round has been scheduled nearby 5th August 2015, and STFI choice filling on 6th August 2015, which has been a drastic blunder as both are considered as the last dates for fee payment for Self Financing Technical Institutes (entitled with JEE system) and STFI form submission respectively.
JoSSA must take necessary steps with ideal consideration for this situation.
