HRD Ministry issues directions to IITs to release supplementary merit list for admission this year


The HRD Ministry has issued directions to the IITs to release a supplementary merit list for admission this year.

IIT Kanpur, the organising institute for JEE-Advanced this year, has been asked by the ministry to release a merit list with the number of candidates, which is twice the number of total seats on offer in each discipline and each category. The institute will have to release the supplementary merit list before joint seat allocation for IITs and NITs begins this week.

The number of candidates who qualified the exam has always been at least twice the number of seats on offer however this year, around 18,000 students on the merit list are only 1.6 times the total seats, making it the smallest number of qualified candidates since 2012.
