Following the decision to waive admission criteria in IITs, some changes have been made for admission to National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and technical institutions aided by the Central Government. Students qualifying JEE Main will no longer require compulsory 75 Fasidi marks in class 12 for admission to NIT. Union Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank tweeted that the National Institute of Technology (NIT) and the Central Government-aided Technical Institutes have now removed the mandatory 75% marks in 12th class of JEE Main Qualified Students.
Apart from this, it will no longer be necessary to be in the top 20 percentile rank in the qualifying exam. This criterion will be applicable for admission to undergraduate courses of NIT and CFTI this year. He said that in view of the circumstances arising out of the Corona epidemic, the Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) has decided to exempt the eligibility criterias of NITs and CFTIs.
Let us tell you that earlier for admission to NIT and CFTI, it was necessary for students to pass the JEE Main exam with 75% marks in the 12th examination or in the top 20 percentile of the qualifying exam. Earlier, the ministry has already decided to give relaxation in admission criteria in IITs. Students who have passed the JEE Advanced for admission to IITs, who have passed the 12th standard examination, will be eligible to take admission and the marks they get will not matter.
