JEE Reservation of Seats in IIT

As per Government of India rules candidates belonging to certain categories are admitted to seats reserved for them based on relaxed criteria. These categories are:

* Scheduled Castes (SC),
* Scheduled Tribes (ST),
* Other Backward Classes (OBC) if they belong to Non-Creamy Layer (NCL),
* Persons with Physical Disability (PD)

Benefit of reservation shall be given only to those castes/tribes which are recognized by the Government of India and are included in the respective central list published by the Department of Personnel and Training.

SC/ST candidates

For the SC and ST categories, 15% and 7.5% seats, respectively, are reserved in all IITs, IT-BHU Varanasi and ISM Dhanbad. Candidates belonging to these categories are qualified on the basis of a relaxed criterion.
Candidates belonging to SC/ST categories will be required to produce the original caste/ tribe certificate issued by a competent authority in the prescribed format (APPENDIX–4). Certificates in any other format will not be accepted. These documents must be produced at the time of counselling, failing which they will NOT be considered for admission. Seats remaining vacant in these categories shall not be filled by candidates belonging to any other category.

OBC candidates

For the purpose of reservation of seats in JEE-2011, a candidate will be considered as OBC only if he/she belongs to the non-creamy layer of this category. Those belonging to the creamy layer of OBC are not entitled for reservation.
For candidates belonging to OBC (non creamy layer), 27% of the seats are reserved in all IITs, IT-BHU Varanasi and ISM Dhanbad, and are allotted based on a relaxed criterion.
In case any of the reserved seats in this category are not filled, they can be filled by candidates belonging to GE category.
The OBC candidates (non-creamy layer) will be required to produce the original caste certificate issued on or after January 1, 2011 by a competent authority in the prescribed format (APPENDIX–5). Certificates in any other format will not be accepted. The certificate must be produced at the time of counselling, failing which they will NOT be considered for admission in the OBC category.

Persons with Disability (PD)

For PD, including leprosy-cured candidates, who are otherwise fit to pursue the course, and qualify JEE with relaxed norms relevant to this category, 3% seats are reserved in each of the categories (namely, GE, OBC, SC, & ST) as specified by the Government of India.
For any category of disability (viz., locomotor, visual, dyslexia, speech, and/or hearing) benefit would be given to those who have at least 40% physical impairment.
The candidates in this category will be required to be certified by a medical board constituted by IITs during counselling. The decision of medical board is final.

Preparatory Course

For SC/ST/PD candidates, in case all the reserved seats are not filled, a limited number of candidates are admitted to a Preparatory Course of one-year duration on the basis of a further relaxation provided (i) if the seats reserved for the respective category are vacant, (ii) candidates satisfy minimum norms, and (iii) candidates have not registered for the Preparatory Course earlier. This course attempts to prepare the students in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. On successful completion of the course, the students will be offered a direct admission to the undergraduate programmes in July 2012, against the unfilled reserved seats for JEE-2011.
