NATA Counselling 2019 - The Council of Architecture (COA), which is the exam conducting body, doesn’t conduct counselling of NATA. Instead, candidates have to apply in the desired institute among the paricipating institutes separately based on their NATA scores for admission to B.Arch course. To be eligible for participation in NATA 2019 counselling, candidates have to score the minimum cutoff marks in the two individual components and also in aggregate. Additionally, the NATA applicant would also have to meet all the other eligibility criteria specific to the institute. Again, since there is no centralized counselling of NATA 2019, there is no uniformity in the counselling processes adopted by these institutes. Go through the rest of the article to learn the full details of NATA counselling 2019.

Key points related to NATA Counselling 2019
COA doesn’t conduct admission counselling. It is only responsible for conducting NATA, which is the qualification exam for admission to B.Arch course
The participating institutes of NATA conduct separate counselling sessions.
To be eligible for counselling conducted by these institutes, one needs to qualify NATA 2019. In other words, the candidate has to meet the aggregate and also component-wise minimum marks determined for the exam.
Each institute is free to decide their own counselling norms, so the mode and process may vary from one institute to another. For example, apart from the eligibility criteria prescribed by COA, the candidate will also have to meet any additional eligibility criteria that the institute may demand.
There are some 477 institutes that offer admission to their B.Arch courses based on NATA scores.

Loopholes in current system and proposed national-level NATA counselling
The Council of Architecture in a recent press conference has stated that there are some loopholes in the current decentralized counselling process.
Since in current system one has to apply separately to each institute, it is time consuming. There are also lot of logistics and cost involved, with the candidate frequently having to college hop.
Also, a number of seats goes vacant in colleges. Considering how so many deserving candidates miss out on a seat, such wastage of seats is criminal.
In view of these loopholes, COA is planning to conduct a national-level common for NATA 2019 qualified candidates. In a common counselling system, the candidate will be able to apply to all participating institutes through one common portal. Also, seats that goes waste in current system will be offered to other state candidates, provided merit list of local candidates is fully accommodated.
The final decision on the proposed changes haven’t been taken yet. So, we have to wait and watch whether COA will go ahead with it planes. And if it does and makes changes to NATA 2019 counselling process, details will be updated on this page.
