The JEE Main 2014 Counselling is to be conducted by the Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) 2014 through the National Institute of Technology, Jaipur. Prof. I.K.Bhat who is the director of the Malviya National Institute of Technology will be the chairman for CSAB 2014.

Careers360 had earlier spoken to CSAB 2013 Chairman Prof Sunil. Kr. Sarangi regarding the various controversies that had mired the CSAB as well as the JEE Main 2013 Counselling. Click here to read.

Taking cue from the discussion which revealed a lot of interesting facts about the CSAB, Careers360 is writing an open letter to MNIT Jaipur Director, also the CSAB 2014 Chairman regarding the issues that plagued the JEE Main 2013 Counselling with an expectation that they have been taken care of and that students can expect a glitch free counselling for JEE Main 2014.

Dear Sir,

CSAB 2013 saw major changes in its implementation strategies as well as controversies in the allotments. There were serious flaws in the system due to which   lot of students suffered and in general were dissatisfied with the  Counselling conducted for JEE Main 2013. We at Careers360 would like to know if the legitimate concerns of JEE aspirants, parents etc with regard to the Counselling Procedure would be addressed at least during CSAB 2014 for JEE Main 2014. We have put together the concerns here and hope you would be kind enough to respond to them so that all the stakeholders could at least look forward to a hassle free counselling process.


Q1:  Expectations are high considering that MNIT has successfully been handling the CCMT – the Common Counselling for M.Tech courses for GATE qualified students. But the number of students who will take part in the Counselling are extremely high in the case of JEE Main 2014 comparatively. Can students expect error free Counselling process from the CSAB?

Q2. Who will be handling the website work? CSAB 2013 was handled badly by CDAC with basic errors even in state codes that should not have happened apart from other errors. What can students expect from CSAB 2014 considering that MNIT Jaipur has now ample time to set these issues right?

Q3 The normalization process is still very much unclear to many students. Is CSAB going to handle the normalization calculations for JEE Main 2014? If yes, can students expect a clear transparent process on the same? What will be the changes expected in the technology that will be used to incorporate it into the system? 

Q4. Global sliding was used by CSAB in 2013. Will the same process be followed in 2014? Considering that there are different institutes with various categories, branches of study, can you give us a brief up of how the counselling is proposed to be done in 2014?

Q5. Random Allotments also happened in JEE Main 2013 Counselling. Upgradation failures also happened in the case of 135 students who were later accommodated. Can we expect all these issues to be corrected for JEE Main 2014 Counselling?

Q6. NITs and IITs had a common admission agreement where data about students already admitted would be available between the two. It was one of the well thought plans to avoid vacancies but was withdrawn in the last minute. Can we expect a common single window counselling for the two in 2014? If yes, how will it be implemented?

Q8. Refund was a major issue at the end of the JEE Main 2013 Counselling. While NIT Rourkela had to face a host of problems like limited clearance handling by the bank there, wrong account numbers given by students and online system failure, how is MNIT Jaipur going to ensure that these problems don’t occur?

We at Careers360 hope that the CSAB Chairman will answer the questions raised to put the fears of students to rest. Careers360 hopes that CSAB will ensure glitch free JEE Main 2014 Counselling for all the students who will have qualified and applied for the admissions to the NITs, CFTIS and SFTIs.
