The MHRD has written to the IIT Council to consider its suggestion of bringing even the JEE Advanced under the ambit of the National Testing Agency along with the other entrance exams that are to be conducted by the agency like the JEE Main which is also the eligibility test for the JEE Advanced. It is reported that the MHRD has also approached the IIMs with a similar proposal for CAT such that the NTA becomes the testing agency in all respects for all the higher education entrance exams.

IITs are reportedly not convinced or happy about the proposal to allow JEE Advanced under the aegis of the National Testing Agency. The general consensus is that the NTA has just been set up and is relatively new. Therefore it is not as equipped to hold an important exam like the JEE Advanced as it has very little operational experience. However the concerned officials are expected to revert to this proposal by December 15. More clarity on this matter will be available after this date.
