1.1 INTRODUCTION The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs)
are institutions of national importance. These institutes, along with Indian School of Mines (ISM), Dhanbad, and Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University (ITBHU), Varanasi, play a leading role in technological manpower development and have excellent research programmes. The admissions to the Undergraduate Programmes for all Indian and Foreign nationals at these institutions are made through the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE).
All these institutions are known for providing quality education in science and technology and for research in frontier areas. The environment at these institutions is highly conducive for

building a solid foundation of knowledge,

development of personality, confidence building, self-discipline and pursuit of excellence,

enhancement of creativity, motivation and drive. All of the above help to prepare the students admitted to these institutions for successful professional and social lives. Today, alumni of these institutions occupy key positions in industry and academia in India and abroad.
Each Institute has state-of-the art laboratories, computer networks, library and access to digital library resources. Teaching methods rely on direct personal contact between the teacher and the students along with the use of traditional and modern instructional techniques. Students live in a pleasant and intellectually stimulating environment with people having similar goals and aspirations hence providingan exciting and unique experience.
Credit-based academic programmes offer flexibility to students to progress at their own pace. A minimum level of performance is necessary for satisfactory progress. The medium of instruction is English. These institutions offer courses leading to Bachelor’s degree in a number of engineering, technological and scientific disciplines.
M.Sc. Integrated courses in pure and applied sciences and M.Tech. Integrated courses in a few disciplines are also offered by many of these institutes. In addition, most institutes offer Dual Degree M.Tech. programmes wherein both B.Tech. and M.Tech. degrees are awarded at the end of the programme.

The number of seats available in each institute for

various courses through JEE-2011 for various categories of students is given in Table-1. Table-2 gives the opening and closing ranks for different courses for the year 2010. The details of fees corresponding to the different institutes are given in Table-3. As stated in the JEE-2011 information brochure the following reservation policy is followed for admission to various courses: 27% seats are reserved for OBC (non-creamy layer), 15% for SC and 7.5% for ST category students. Allotment of seats to qualified candidates with Physical Disabilities (subcategory PD) belonging to different categories, i.e., GE, OBC(NCL), SC and ST, will be made category-wise in JEE-2011. Up to 3% of the total seats available to each category in each of the institutes will be made available to the PD candidates. These seats will be allotted to PD candidates according to their categories, ranks in the category-wise PD merit list and the choice sheet of courses submitted. Since the allotment of at least one seat in every course in every institute to PD candidates will lead to more than 3% reservation, these PD seats will be allotted to different categories over the years on a roster basis. This year, the seats available to PD candidates belonging to different categories are given in Table-1. Two seats are available for preferential allotment in each institute for children of defence/ paramilitary personnel killed or permanently disabled in action during war or peace time operations (DS subcategory). Candidates belonging to DS subcategory should submit the original certificate issued by the competent authority in the Directorate of Resettlement and Rehabilitation, New Delhi under the Ministry of Defence or Ministry of Home affairs, Government of India.
The counselling is online for all JEE-2011 qualified candidates desirous of joining the IITs/ ISM-Dhanbad/ IT-BHU, Varanasi, irrespective of the Category/ Subcategory they belong to. Please note that no candidate qualified in JEE-2011 is required to come to any of the IITs in person for counselling. However, the PD candidates have to appear before special medical board, as described in Section 1.8. Further those candidates who would like to appear for the Architecture/Design Aptitude Test need to come to any of the IITs in person, as described in Section 1.9. The online counselling procedure comprises four steps, namely, (1) Registration on JEE Counselling Online Portal (JCOP) website (2) Payment of counselling fees (3) Submission of photocopies of documents to the zonal IITs, and, (4) Choice filling. Before proceeding further, the candidate is advised to go through the instructions given in the “Help” tab in JCOP thoroughly.
The candidate needs to register at the JEE Counselling Online Portal (JCOP) http://www.jee.iitk.ac.in/JCOP using the “Register Here” link and filling the required details as given in the JEE-2011 admit card along with a password. At the completion of this procedure the website shall automatically create a User-ID. The User- ID and Password should be noted down carefully, kept confidential and used for the remaining steps. Detailed instructions for this step are provided in the “Registration Procedure” document available for download in the “Help” tab in JCOP.
After registration and payment of counselling fee, the candidate needs to login to the JCOP (http://www.jee.iitk.ac.in/JCOP) using the User-ID, password and the JEE-2011 registration number printed on the JEE-2011 admit card. On this webpage the candidate enters the choices of courses in the order of his/her preference. This choice-order is very important for the following reasons: The course allocation for a candidate is done strictly on the basis of the all India rank (AIR) he/she gets based on the performance in JEE-2011 as well as the courses he/she selects in order of preference during counselling. For example, a candidate with AIR 558 will be considered for seat allotment after all candidates with AIR less than or equal to 557 have been considered for seat allotment. For every candidate, if his/her first choice is available, he/she is allotted that choice. Otherwise further choices, strictly in order ofthe declared preferences in the choice sheet, are considered. The highest choice available is allotted to the candidate and all subsequent choices are ignored. If the candidate does not fill sufficient number of courses as choices, he/she may not get any course allotment, especially in the case where the candidate has low AIR. The choices filled by the candidate in JCOP are final and cannot be changed at a later stage. Thus, in their own interest, candidates must fill in a sufficiently large number of choices of courses in the decreasing order of preference. Courses in Mining Engineering and Mining Machinery Engineering and related courses (Courses 28, 29 and 107, 108 and 109 of Table-1) have additional prescribed standards of fitness. These candidates should be free from colour blindness and the standard of visual acuity with or without glasses should be as per DGMS Circular 14 of 1972 (the distant vision of eye with or without glasses should be not less than 6/6 for better eye and 6/9 for worse eye). The candidates with one-eyed vision are also not eligible for these courses. In addition, candidates seeking admission in Petroleum Engineering related Courses and M.Sc. Tech Applied Geology (Courses 32, 51, 113) should also be free from colour blindness. Candidates must make sure that they meet these standards if they opt for these courses. The responsibility for ensuring this is entirely the candidate’s. In case a candidate does not meet these requirements but opts for these courses and is allotted one of them, his/her admission will be cancelled later on. In all such cases the candidate will have no claim for any other course of study in any of the institutes. ISM Dhanbad does not admit women candidates in the Mining Engineering, Mining Machinery Engineering and related courses (Courses 28, 29, 107 and 108 in Table-1). Women candidates are eligible to opt for Mining Engineering at IIT Kharagpur and IT-BHU (Courses 28, 107 and 109 in Table-1), provided they fulfil the special medical requirements as mentioned above. Women candidates opting for these courses may also note that Section 46(1) of the Mines Act, 1952 states that “No women shall, notwithstanding anything contained in any other law, be employed
(a) in any part of a mine which is below ground, (b) in any mine above ground except between the hours 6 a.m. and 7 p.m.”. To take care of the possibility that some qualified candidates may not take the admission, the number of candidates considered for online seat allotment is kept more than the number of seats available in the participating institutes. Therefore, the fact that an applicant has qualified in JEE-2011 and has been permitted for online counselling does not guarantee admission to him/her. There are two rounds of course allocation in JEE-2011. At the end of first round the candidate shall be informed about the course allotted to him/her. This allotment can change in the second round to a choice better than the one allotted in the first round depending on the number of candidates declining the seats offered to them in the first round of seat allotment. In no case, a candidate will be allotted a choice lower in the list than what is allotted during the first round. The course allotted at the end of second round of course-allocation is final. There is no provision to freeze the course allotted to the candidate at theend of the first round.
The following links will be useful to the candidates for deciding on the choice-list of courses. The JCOP has links to the main websites of all the participating institutions that include the 15 IITs, ISM-Dhanbad and IT-BHU, Varanasi. These websites in-turn have links to the individual departments and academic sections. In addition, the JCOP as well as this brochure include details regarding availability of seats in different courses (Table-1), opening and closing ranks in courses for the year 2010 (Table-2) and Fee structure (Table-3) in the participating institutes. Please click the “Documents” tab in JCOP to download the above documents.
Detailed instructions for this step are provided in the “Choice filling Procedure” document available for download in the “Help” tab in JCOP.
A non-refundable counselling fee of Rs. 1000/- needs to be paid by all candidates. The counselling fee can be paid only after registration either using credit card/ debit card/ ATM card (only those with Visa or Master Card Logo) or the National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT), excluding NEFT charges in bank, if any. Detailed instructions for this step are provided in the “Payment Guidelines” document available for download in the “Help” tab in JCOP. Candidates are advised to go through these guidelines and terms andconditions for online payments carefully before proceeding for payment. The candidate can fill and lock his/her choices only after payment of the counselling fee.

The candidates who have been allotted a course will have to pay a nonrefundable Registration Fee of Rs.40,000/- (Rs. 20,000/= for SC/ST) on or before 17:00 hrs of July 1, 2011 to accept the offer of admission.
