JoSAA-2020 registration process is mandatory for any qualified candidate interested in joining any of the IITs, NITs, IIITs (Triple-I-Ts) and Other-GFTIs (within the purview of JoSAA-2020).

This year JoSAA will conduct six rounds of allotment instead of the usual seven to compensate for the loss of time due to COVID-19 pandemic. The first allotment result was declared on October 17, the second allotment was declared on October 21, the third allotment on October 26, and the fourth allotment on October 31.

JoSAA counselling process is for candidates who have cleared the JEE Advanced exam for admissions to various IITs, NITs, CFITs, IIITs among other prominent institutions. The candidates who are allocated seats can fulfil the formalities online this year. Until last year, candidates had to fulfill the process by showing up to the institute.
