Executive summary

  • Seat allocation was done jointly with NITs, IIITs (Triple-I-Ts) and Other GFTIs. The deferred acceptance (DA) algorithm was used for seat allocation using multiple rank lists from three different examinations viz., JEE (Main) 2015 Paper-1, JEE (Main) 2015 Paper-2 and JEE (Advanced) 2015.
