Last year, out of 2.6 lakh candidates who cleared the JEE (Main), 1.5 lakh registered for JEE (Advanced). Whereas in 2020, out of 2.5 lakh candidates who cleared JEE (Main) 1.6 lakh had registered for JEE (Advanced.) In both years, only 1.5 lakh students appeared for the test. There are 16,232 seats available, including in all the 23 IITs, which is a considerable increase from 13,000 in 2019. The increase includes 1,583 supernumerary seats for females.
However, in recent times, IITs have been witnessing vacancy issues, especially the new IITs. While 121 seats were left vacant in 2017, it was only 96 in the previous year. According to officials at the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA), older IITs and popular courses do not see vacancies. “Whereas if a student does not manage to get a seat in a course or IIT he/she desires. taking admission to non-IIT technology college is preferred,” an official shared.
