In IITs, 464 seats left vacant after Round 1

As many as 464 seats remained vacant across the 23 Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) after the first round of seat allocations ended on Wednesday. Figures revealed by the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) shows that these 464 vacant seats were then reallocated in the second round late on Wednesday evening.

Originally supposed to be released at 5pm on Wednesday, the second seat allocation list was finally available on the JoSAA website post 10:30 pm.

“Since confirmation of admissions is being conducted online due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation instead of the usual physical reporting by students, so many queries were raised about documents that needed uploading by students, who could not do so due to various reasons. Our first priority was to solve students’ queries and then release the second list,” said an official from the JoSAA office.

As per information revealed by JoSAA, after ISM Dhanbad, which had 59 seats vacant, IIT (BHU) Varanasi had 49 vacant seats, followed by 44 seats in IIT Kharagpur, 30 in IIT Madras, 26 in IIT Kanpur, 25 in IIT Bhubaneswar, 21 in IIT Bombay and 20 each in IIT Patna, Roorkee and Jammu.
