Special Counselling deadline extended by CSAB
Further changes have been brought to the special counselling session conducted by CSAB (Central Seat Allocation Board) as the deadline for the counselling process has been extended to August 17. The extension of the deadline has been made to fill all the vacant seats in NITs, IITs and GFTIs.
On August 7, CSAB declared the schedule for the special counseling session. As per the earlier schedule, the declaration of the allotment of seats was supposed to be done by August 12 but CSAB has now decided to continue the counseling procedure till August 17.
Almost 5,550 seats in NITs, IIITs and GFTIs are lying vacant, out of which almost 3100 are in NITs.
CSAB had earlier stated that only students not allotted a seat in JOSAA 2015 can apply for the special counseling session but now students with JEE (Mains) ranks without any seat can apply for the process.
