  • After counselling is over, the JoSAA 2022 Cut-Off Ranking, Opening and Closing Ranks are announced.
  • The entire counselling and allocation process will be done online. 
  • Once the seats have been allocated, to confirm admission candidates need to get their documents verified and pay the admission fee at the allocated college.

Counselling Procedure:

JoSAA Counselling 2022 procedure includes registration, choice filling, seat allocation, and admission confirmation. 

Step 1: Registration: To begin, candidates need to register for JoSAA Counselling 2022:

  • Visit the official website of JoSAA 2022- www.josaa.nic.in.
  • Click on the registration link
  • Register using your JEE Main 2022 Roll number and Password.
  • Candidates who have qualified JEE Advanced 2022 may register using their respective passwords.
  • Fill in the basic information including nationality, state eligibility code, gender, and more.
  • Review the details and re-confirm them.
  • Once submitted, no personal information (except contact information) can be changed by the candidates.

Step 2: Choice Filling: After registration, candidates need to fill in their preferred college and course and lock their choices.

  • Log in to the official JoSAA Counselling 2022 portal by entering your roll number and password.

  • Next, go to ‘Choice Filling & Locking’ and fill in enough choices to improve your chances of getting a seat.
  • Lock your filled choices before submitting.

Note: Choice filling is completely free of cost and no changes can be made once the filled choice is locked.

Step 3: Mock Seat Allotment: JoSAA 2022 mock seat allotment will be held by authorities to help applicants in knowing their chances of admission into their desired colleges. If the colleges and courses allotted during the mock seat allocation are unsatisfactory, the candidates may change their order preferences accordingly. 

  • The mock seat allotment process will begin on 23 September 2022.
  • Candidates can check the mock seat allocation by visiting the official website.
  • Log in using your JEE Main 2022 application number, and password.
  • Download your provisional allotment letter and take a printout.

Since the allotment is not final, the candidates will have enough time to change their order of preferences.

Step 4: JoSAA 2022 Seat Allotment: Following mock allocation, the final JoSAA 2022 seat allocation will be held in 6 rounds. Seats are assigned to candidates based on their scores in qualifying exams (JEE Main & JEE Advanced) and their selected preferences. To check the JoSAA 2022 Seat Allocation result, follow the given steps:

  • Visit the official website www.josaa.nic.in.
  • Click on the “View Seat Allotment Result” link.
  • Log in using your JEE Main 2022 application number, and password.
  • Your JoSAA 2022 seat allotment result will be displayed on the screen.
  • Download the allotment letter and take a printout.

After seat allotment, candidates can choose any one of the following options:

Freeze: Candidates must choose this option if they are happy with the seat they have been assigned and do not want to take part in any additional rounds of counselling.

Float: Candidates must choose this option if they want to accept the seat they have been assigned but are also open to upgradation and admission to higher-preferred institutes or courses.

Slide: Candidates should choose this option to confirm their allotment but are also open to upgradation and admission to higher-preferred courses in the same institute.

Step 5: Seat Acceptance: After downloading the allotment letter, candidates need to pay the seat acceptance fee which is as follows:

Category Fees (INR)
SC, ST and PwD categories Rs 15,000
Other categories Rs 35,000
  • Fees can be paid through online payment modes (Credit Card, Debit Card, and Netbanking).

Step 6: Reporting for Document Verification: Once the candidates have accepted the seat, they need to report at the prescribed reporting center to get their documents verified.

  • Candidates must arrive at the designated reporting center on the specified date and time.
  • Candidates should bring all their original documents as well as photocopies for verification.

Note: For candidates who select the float option may get a better seat in the next counselling round, therefore they must report again with the documents for verification.

Step 7: Reporting for Admission: After completing all the processes, candidates need to report at their allocated JoSAA college to finish further formalities of the admission procedure to confirm their admission.

JoSAA 2022 Important Points:

  • Candidates must register on the official web portal to participate in the JoSAA counselling.
  • The choices must be filled in by the candidates. They won’t be qualified for any seat allocation if they fail to do so.
  • Double-check your choices before locking them because you won’t be able to change them beyond that point.
  • Candidates need to report again at the reporting centers if they get another seat during subsequent seat allotment and they want to take the later one instead.
  • Any candidate who wants to switch from an NIT to an IIT or vice versa must report to the new institution. Failing to do so will result in admission cancellation.

CSAB Counselling:

  • Upon completion of JoSAA counselling, if any vacant seats are remaining, then CSAB conducts some special rounds to fill up the vacant seats for NITs, IIITs and various other colleges.
  • You can switch to CSAB if you didn’t get any seats from JoSAA.
  • CSAB does not conduct the counselling process for admission into IITs.
  • Even if you already have a seat, you can still apply for the CSAB special rounds because there’s a chance you’ll get a better branch.
