JEE Main Seat Vacancy Quota and Categories

There are several quotas and categories that are applicable in JEE Main Seat Reservation. In NITs (National Institute of Technology), seats are distributed among 2 quotas primarily – Home State and Other State.

  • Home State Quota (HS): For Candidates from same state
  • Other State Quota (OS): For Candidates Applying in a Different State

Note: Full Home State Quota at the nearest NIT will be made available in case of Union Territory without any NIT (Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Lakshadweep & Kandvi, Daman & Diu, and Dadra & Nagar Haveli). Thus, the HS quota will be made available at NIT at Durgapur, Calicut and Surat respectively for these UTs. This quota will be supernumerary – over and above the original Home State Quota of each institute.

Candidates belonging to these UTs are also eligible for the seats in NITs other than their “Home State” under “Other State” quota.

Quotas/Reservations in Other Central Institutes: In CFTIs, IIITs and SFTIs, the seats are allocated on the basis of HS/OS/All India Quota, as applicable.

Quotas/Reservations in State Engineering Colleges: As far as admissions to state engineering colleges, who have opted for admission through JEE Main 2017, are concerned, the reservation rules of that state will be applied.

CSAB also allows candidates to apply for other reserved categories too, on the basis of a fix rule. The following list classifies the quota on the basis of accepted categories.
