Every time they select the candidates based on the JEE (Advanced) 2016 scores. It is the entrance examination; based on the marks the candidates have possibilities to get seats in their favorite colleges. Indian Institutes of Information Technology [IIITs or Triple-I-Ts], National Institutes of Technology [NITs] and some other technical Institutes are also funded fully, and they offer academic programs for  the candidates welfare at the same time they provides more options based on the JEE (Main) 2016 scores.

How Partitioning of candidates will be done

Before the seat allocation the authorities check all the required information about the candidates as first they checks the qualified candidates are partitioned into different categories based on  nationality presence or absence of disability and (birth) categories.

  • Category tag GEN: this category is assigned to the Indian nationals who do not belong to  the SC or ST, OBC-NCL category or else  this also assigned who are fail to produce  the valid SC or ST  and OBC-NCL certificate   and  are NOT Persons with  the
  • The Category tag  of GEN-PwD:  this category is also assigned to the Indian nationals who are NOT belong to  the SC or ST   as well as the OBC-NCL category or the candidate who  are fail to produce  the valid SC or ST , OBC-NCL certificate and are Persons with the Disabilities.  All the candidates are instructed to produce  the valid PwD certificate  in order to assign this tag because it is essential factor.
  • The Category tag of OBC-NCL:  it is also assigned to  the Indian nationals who  are belong to the Non-Creamy Layer of  the  OBC ( Other Backward Classes) and are NOT Persons with the  The candidates are requested to produce the valid OBC-NCL certificate to the respective authorities.  In order to assign this tag all the candidate need to follow this instruction.  Moreover, the backward class taking place of the Central List of the Other Backward Classes. As per the judgment of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India and the judgment is given in March 17, 2015 under the writ petition (CIVIL) NO. 274 OF 2014],  the Jats in the Central List of  the OBC ( Other Backward Classes) for the States of Gujarat, Bihar, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Bharatpur  as well as the Dholpur Districts of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand  does not considered under  the Other Backward Classes.
  • The Category tag OBC-NCL-PwD:  it is also assign to the Indian nationals who are belong to the Non-Creamy Layer of the OBC ( Other Backward Classes) and are the Persons with  the  All the candidates instructed to produce the valid OBC-NCL as well as PwD certificates also assigned the tag and the backward class must be in the Central List of the OBCs.  The candidates who are belonging to the Non-Creamy Layer of the OBC also separated under the two exclusive categories.  At the same time them and are assigned either one of the tags such as OBC-NCL-PwD or OBC-NCL.
  • The Category tag SC:  it is assigned to Indian nationals who  are also belong to  the Scheduled Caste ( SC )and are NOT Persons with the Disabilities, rather than the candidates are  need  to produce  the  valid SC (  Scheduled Caste ) certificate   to the authorities , in order to assign.
  • The Category tag of SC-PwD: This also assigned to the Indian nationals who are belong to the SC (Scheduled Castes) and are Persons with the Disabilities. Normally the candidates needed to produce the valid SC as well as PwD certificates it supports to assign the tag.  Moreover, the candidates are belonging to the scheduled castes   similarly this also divided into two important categories at the same time it also assigned the following tags such as SC-PwD or SC.
  • The Category tag ST:   it is assigned to the Indian nationals who are belong to the ST (Scheduled Tribes) and are NOT Persons with the  In addition, the candidates also requested to produce the valid ST certificate to assign the category tag ST.
  • The Category tag ST-PwD:  in general it is assigned to the Indian nationals and who are belong to the ST (Scheduled Tribes) as well as the Persons with the At the same time, the Candidates have to produce the valid ST as well as PwD certificates to assign this tag.  Normally the scheduled tribes also divided into 2 main categories such as ST as well as ST-PwD.
  • The Category tag Foreign: it helps to assign to the candidates who are NOT the Indian nationals.

The candidates who are registered for the JEE (Advanced) 2016, the category tag is allocated based on the candidate’s declaration.  In general the registration for the JEE (Advanced) 2016 is verified category wise.  At the same time, the category document verification by the JAB also based on the rules as well as regulations.

The candidates who have NOT registered for the JEE (Advanced) 2016 exam, and the category tag is also assigned based on the candidate’s declaration in the JEE (Main) 2016 registration portal.

In order to allocate the seats the NITs as well as some Other-GFTIs, candidates also assigned the state code, which is also provided based on the eligibility criteria.

  • In general, the state code of the eligibility means the code of the state from the candidates where they passed in the 12th In order to get the seats  the candidate has passed Class XII or  the equivalent examination by  the virtue. The eligible candidate can have chances to appear in the JEE (Main) 2016 rather than the codes of the states also same as those given in the JEE (Main) 2016 Information Bulletin.

It is one of the most important factor and the candidate requested to note that the state code. In general, the eligibility does NOT depend upon the native place; it depends on the mark and the topper list. For example, if the candidate appears for the Class XII examination in New Delhi and the candidate having resident of NOIDA or Uttar Pradesh that candidate also able to take the exams and they also need to mention the candidate’s state code of the eligibility. It will be help to take the exams.

  • If a candidate has passed in the Class XII or the equivalent examination from one state and the candidate appeared for improvement from another state means the candidate’s state code of eligibility always differ. The candidate need to get the codes from the first passed institutions where the candidates passed the Class XII or equivalent examination on the state from where the candidate has appeared for the improvement.

As indicated in the business rules and regulations #18 and also #19, the students can become eligible for the seat allocation in greater than the one seat category which is based on the category tag lists as well as the rank lists in that they appear.

If an allocated seats are not in #1 seat category, in the subsequent rounds if the seat allocation, the students can be automatically considered for the up gradation of the seta category. Meaning of the “upgradation of seat category”: Suppose the students with a category tag SC-PwD has allocated the seat under a seat category of SC-PwD. Also, suppose that this student appears in the three rank lists such as CRL-PwD, SC and SC-PwD. For this the student, in the subsequent rounds of the seat allocation, the attempt will be made to provide the seat in a seat category of SC or OPEN-PwD.

An academic program or the Institute have allocated into the students cannot change because of the upgradation of the seat category.
