JoSAA will conduct a centralised counselling process through which the seats will be allocated to the candidates. The JoSAA Seat Allotment 2020 will be done on the basis of rank obtained by the candidates in JEE Main/ Advanced along with their preference of choice filled.
After the seat is allotted to the candidates, they will have the option to either freeze, float, slide or withdraw their allotted seats. See the below table to understand how these options work:
|Freeze||If the candidates are satisfied with the colleges/ courses allotted to them, they can accept the allotment and freeze their seats.|
|Float||If the candidate wants to keep the seat allotted but also wants to participate in the next round of counselling, he/she can choose the float option. This way, he/she can choose either seat allotted to them.|
|Slide||If the candidate is satisfied with the college allotted but wishes to change the course within the same college, then he/she can choose the slide option.|
|If the candidate has accepted the allotment but is not satisfied with the seat allotted & doesn’t want to get admission to the college, he/she can withdraw their seats by visiting the institutes.|
