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.
