Details of JAM Counselling

After JAM 2021 results are announced, a qualified candidate should apply ONLINE only using the prescribed Admission Form available at JOAPS website, irrespective of the Institute where the admission is sought.

Irrespective of whether a candidate has qualified in one or two Test Papers, only one duly completed Admission Form should be submitted. The duly completed Admission Form must list, in an option form, all the programmes at IITs (along with the order of preferences) where the candidate is seeking admission.

Detail Process

Upon logging into the JAM Online Application Process System website (JOAPS), the candidate needs to provide the required information, such as choice of the programmes in order of preference, educational qualifications, the percentage of marks/CGPA, category, PwD status, etc. After carefully choosing the order of programme preferences based on the ER and MEQ of the programmes at Admitting Institutes, a payment of ₹ 600/- is to be made as non-refundable processing fee.

The Admission Form will not be considered if it is found incomplete in any respect or if it is not accompanied by the payment. The candidate will not be considered for admission, irrespective of satisfying the ER and MEQ of any programme(s) for which the Admission Form has been submitted. Also, a candidate will be considered for admission only to the programme(s), given in his/her Admission Form.

First Admission List

Taking into consideration the order of preference as given in the Admission Form and corresponding rank(s) in the Merit List, the First Admission List for each programme under JAM 2021 will be prepared by the Organizing Institute and announced on June 16, 2021 (Wednesday) on JAM 2021 website.

After the declaration of the First List of Admission, intimation will be sent by the Organizing Institute to the candidates concerned. Along with the submission of acceptance form, these candidates will also have to pay an advance seat booking fee (₹ 10000/- for General/OBC- NCL/EWS category candidates and ₹ 5000/- for SC/ST/PWD category candidates) online through JOAPS, within the deadline mentioned in the offer letter. This amount will be transferred to the Admitting Institute and it will be adjusted against the Institute Fee at the time of Registration.

Second Admission List

If seats remain vacant after the first admission process is over, the Organizing Institute will prepare a Second Admission List. This second list will be announced by the Organizing Institute on July 01, 2021 (Thursday) on JAM 2021 website. An intimation based on the second list, if any, will be sent to the candidates concerned by the Organizing Institute.

Candidates who have been intimated about the offer through the Second List but not through the First List, must submit their acceptance form, along with an advance seat booking fee (Rs. 10000/- for General/OBC-NCL/EWS and ₹ 5000/- for SC/ST/PWD category candidates) paid online through JOAPS. This amount will be transferred to the Admitting Institute and it will be adjusted against the Institute Fee at the time of Registration.

Third Admission List

If seats remain vacant even after the second admission process is over, the Organizing Institute will prepare a Third and Final Admission List. This third and final list will be announced by the Organizing Institute on July 16, 2021 (Friday) on JAM 2021 website. The intimation will be sent by the Organizing Institute to the candidates concerned.

Candidates who have been intimated about the offer through the Third List but not through the first two lists, must submit their acceptance form, along with an advance seat booking fee (₹ 10000/- for General/OBC-NCL/EWS and ₹ 5000/- for SC/ST/PwD category candidates).

With the Third and Final Admission List, the admission process based on JAM 2021 will come to a close.

Special Note

If a qualified candidate is allotted a seat through the First Admission List and if the offer of admission is accepted, the lower preferences of the candidate, if any, will be automatically cancelled. However, the candidate will remain on the waiting list for all the higher preferences (if any). Qualified candidates, who are not allotted any seat in the First/Second Admission List, will remain on the waiting list in the next round of admission(s). If a qualified candidate fails to accept an admission offer, he/she will not be considered further in the admission process.
