if we get 95 percentile in jee mains which nit college do we get seat for free
With 95 percentile your CRL rank would be 53000 approximately. This is not a good rank. You have not mentioned your category. Nevertheless, if you belong to General or OBC category then you would not be able to get good college and branch. If you have some reservations like that of SC/ST then you have the chance to get the same. For more information please check the college predictor tool:

Didi NCHMCT jee exam will postpone which is going to held on 29 August. due to increasing cases of covid -19 .
See, as per the situation till now, we can't say anything that NCHMCT JEE 2020 Exam would be postponed or not not. As their is no official update we can only make assumptions about it that it will be postponed or will happen on 29 August or not.
By the way, in my opinion, if the cases kept rising at a similar pace as of now, then yes it should postponed.
Official information awaited.
