The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India took a policy decision
in 2002 to conduct an All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) annually,
doing away with many of the large number of entrance examinations that were being
conducted till then by various institutes in the country for admission to undergraduate
degree programmes in the disciplines of Engineering/Technology and Architecture/
Planning. This initiative has been widely accepted and appreciated.
A Central Counseling Board (CCB) constituted by the Govt. of India coordinated admissions
to UG degree programmes in engineering, technology and architecture in respect of
selected institutes till 2012. From 2013 onwards, Central Counseling Board (CCB)
and All India Engineering Entrance Exam (AIEEE) has been renamed as Central Seat
Allocation Board (CSAB) and JEE (Mains) respectively. The CSAB for 2014 has been
constituted with Director, Malaviya National Institute of Technology Jaipur, as
its Chairman. The Office Memorandum of Ministry of HRD, Govt. of India is placed
at Annexure V of information brochure.
30 NITs, 12 IIITs/IIITM/IIITDM, 16 other Central/State Government Funded Institutes
(GFTIs) and some Self Financed Technical Institutes (SFTIs), list displayed on CSAB
website will admit candidates on the basis of their All India Rank (AIR) in JEE
(Main)-2014 to the first year of Engineering/Technology and Architecture / Planning
Programs through a centralized seat allocation procedure, for the academic session
Important features of the admission procedure, fee refund rules, admission schedule,
list of Reporting/Help Centers, list of Participating Institutes with total number
of seats, fee structure and contact addresses, seat distribution in the Institutes
etc., are given in information brochure. Candidates are advised to read information brochure carefully
and visit CSAB website regularly for updates and for details regarding
the entire online admission process as no postal communication will be used.
In case of any dispute arising out of the seat allocation process at any stage up
to the final allocation of institute and/or branch, the decision of Chairman, CSAB-2014
shall be final and binding. The jurisdiction for legal disputes, if any, will be
limited to the courts at Jaipur only.
For smooth functioning of admission procedure resulting into maximum number of
candidates getting admission to the course and institute of their choice and minimizing
the number of vacant seats, it is advised that the candidates should carefully follow
the admission procedure given in information brochure. The procedure offers enough flexibility
at every round of allotment and candidates are urged to co-operate by not prolonging
their final decision on admission after seat allotment. This will facilitate in
catering to the needs of larger number of candidates seeking admission through CSAB-2014.
