In the meeting, the memorandum was signed between various authorities such as Joint Entrance Admission (JEE- advanced) 2017 that represents ISM Dhanbad and all the IITs, Joint Admission Board (JAB) and Central Seat Allocation Board 2017 that represents the IITs, NITs and other fully or partly Central or State Government funded technical institutes. From 2016, it has been decided that all the institutes will follow a same platform for the admissions. The admissions will take place on online basis only. National Informatics Centre has been chosen to design the host site for the joint seat allocation by JoSAA online.
