Click here to know the answers of FAQs related to the Joint Seat Allocation.
Question: Do I need to FREEZE seat for IITs-ISM in 3rd Round?
Answer: In the third (3rd) round of seat acceptance during 19-21 July, 2015, if candidates come for "freezing" from "float" and "slide" options to retain IIT seats, they will be allowed to do so until 21 July 2015, 5:00 pm. Those Candidates who had given NITs, IIITs or Other-GFTs as higher CHOICES than IITs but have an IIT seat allotted in the third (3rd) round and want to retain it (IIT seat) MUST go physically to any of the reporting IITs and FREEZE the IIT seat. Otherwise, candidates may be upgraded to other than IIT seat in the fourth round (that means they lose the IIT seat) which is exclusively for NON-IITs except Preparatory Candidates. However, if candidates with only IITs as higher choices and obtained an IIT seat in third (3rd) round come for freezing (which is optional form them, without reporting also it gets automatically FREEZE on 21st July, because they don't have any other NON-IITs option in the higher choices than the obatained one), zonal IITs may accept and do it so that the candidates can also print their "PROVISIONAL ADMISSION LETTER" now itself without waiting until the completion of the third (3rd) round.
