Changes Introduced for 2020

The Human Resource Development Minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank' adds:

“Due to prevailing circumstances, Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) has decided to relax the eligibility criterion for admissions to NITs and other CFTIs.”

Candidates who get to qualify JEE Main 2020 entrance examination will now only be required to possess a passing certificate of class 12th. The marks obtained by candidates in class 12th board exam will not be considered now for admission thus; no such limit of minimum marks has been set for students seeking admission to the NITs.

As per the announcement made by the education minister on 17th July 2020, the Joint Admission Board (JAB) decided to relax the eligibility criterion for students qualifying JEE Advanced 2020. And now, the same has been applied to the criterion for admission to NITs.
