A decision has been taken at the level of the IIT Council to, inter alia, improve the gender balance in the undergraduate programs at the IITs to at least 20% in 2020-21 ( 17% in 2019 )by creating supernumerary seats specifically for female candidates, without any reduction in the number of seats that was made available to gender neutral candidate in the previous academic year (i.e. academic year 2019-2020). Accordingly, to achieve this objective, and in accordance with the directions of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, supernumerary seats will thus be created and offered to female candidates for improving the gender balance in the undergraduate programs in IITs. These supernumerary seats will be offered (a) to only those female candidates who are declared qualified in JEE (Advanced) – 2020, and, (b) strictly based on the performance in JEE (Advanced) – 2020.
The reservation policy as per Government of India norms as existing at present will be applicable to these supernumerary seats as well. The detailed procedure for implementation of the above shall be set out in the Business Rules of the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA), 2020.
