  • DHISAI - Awareness campaign for admissions to NITs and IITs through JEE

    (Joint Entrance Examination)

    Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an all India common entrance examination

    which is conducted for admission to various engineering courses. JEE (Joint

    Entrance Examination) is conducted in two parts: JEE-Main and JEE-

    Advanced. JEE-Main is the exam necessary to get admission in NITs (National

    Institutes of Technology), IIITs (Indian Institutes of Information Technology),

    and other CFTIs (Central Funded Technical Institutes). Students clearing JEE-

    Main will be allowed to appear for JEE-Advanced. JEE-Advanced is for

    admission to Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), Indian Institute of Science

    Education and Research (IISER), and the Indian School of Mines (ISM),

    Dhanbad. This booklet is for explaining to the students currently in Class 12 about the

    importance of these premier institutes and will also serve as a guide to help

    them prepare for the entrance exams to secure admission into these institutes.

    This is useful for students looking to pursue their undergraduate degree in

    Engineering at premier institutes like Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), and

    National Institutes of Technology (NITs). There are 18 IITs spread across various locations in India like Bhubaneswar,

    Chennai, Delhi, Gandhinagar, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Indore, Jodhpur, Kanpur,

    Kharagpur, Mandi, Mumbai, Patna, Ropar, Roorkee and Varanasi, and there are

    around 31 NITs; one in almost every state and Union-Territory, with those in

    Trichy, Warangal, Surathkal and Calicut being the highest ranked among them.

    National Institutes of Technology: The National Institutes of Technology (NITs) are a group of government funded

    engineering colleges in India. During their inception decades ago, all NITs were

    referred to as Regional Engineering Colleges (RECs) and were taken care of by

    their respective state governments. These RECs later changed into NITs and

    now come under the Ministry of Human Resource Development, New Delhi.

    These Institutes of National Importance were founded to promote regional

    diversity and multi-cultural understanding in India. A total of thirty-one

    autonomous institutes are there. They are located in each state/union-territory of


  • About NIT Trichy NIT Trichy possesses an 800-acre campus, located on the outskirts of

    Tiruchirappalli, and is one of the most coveted educational institutions in the

    country, attracting students from across the country as well as from abroad.

    While it primarily focuses on Engineering and Architecture, there is a strong

    emphasis on Science, Humanities and Management studies too. NIT Trichy is

    ranked as one of the topmost NITs, and was ranked 8th in the 'OUTLOOK' Best

    Engineering Colleges, 2016. It also received the recognition of ‘The University

    of the Year’ at the FICCI higher education summit held in New Delhi in 2017.

    The following is a list of top 10 Engineering institutes in India: (Source: OUTLOOK magazine, Best Engineering colleges in India 2016) Location of NITS throughout India

    NIT Trichy is at par with a few IITs and is way ahead of many other IITs which

    are not mentioned in the list above. To get admission into NIT Trichy, the

    candidate must excel in JEE-Main.

    About JEE-Main:

    JEE-Main, conducted by CBSE generally takes place in the month of April. The

    candidates have an option of taking the exam either online or offline (pen and

    paper). JEE-Main will test the candidate's proficiency in class 11 and class 12

    Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. The exam mainly focuses on the CBSE

    curriculum of the above mentioned subjects.

    Every year, around 13 lakh students appear for JEE-Main. Around 23,000

    students are admitted into NITs from all over India. Similar to the reservation

    system adopted for admission in most of the State colleges, a category based

    reservation scheme is available for JEE also.

  • The percentage reservation for various categories is as

    follows: GENERAL (from OBC-NCL (other SC (Scheduled ST (Scheduled

    the common merit Backward Class- Caste) Tribe)

    list) Non-Creamy Layer)

    50.5% 27% 15% 7.5%

    Within each of these four categories, 3% of horizontal reservation is available

    for Physically Challenged candidates.

    OBC candidates whose parents' total gross annual income is above 6 lakhs

    for a period of three consecutive years belong to the 'Creamy Layer', and so

    are excluded from the benefits of belonging to the Other Backward Class.

    Such candidates will fall under the General Category only.

    Other than the above-mentioned reservations, there is a state wise reservation

    for students pursuing Higher Secondary school education in the respective

    state. 50% of the total number of seats in any of the NITs is reserved for

    students belonging to the home state. Fortunately, NIT Trichy is one of the best

    NITs in the country and students of Tamil Nadu have an extra edge over the

    students of other states to make it to NIT Trichy with ease.

    For students belonging to SC/ST category, NIT Trichy has a dedicated ‘SC/ST

    Cell’ to aid the students who require financial support. Also, various scholarship

    schemes are available with the state government for the students belonging to

    Tamil Nadu, who require a financial aid. The SC/ST cell of NIT Trichy also

    promotes various activities like orientation program for Tamil medium students

    to improve their language and other soft skills. Also, free training on the use of

    various engineering softwares and coaching for civil services examinations are


    Generally, there is an opinion among Tamil Nadu State Board students that they might face challenges after joining NIT Trichy since most of the all India entrance examinations primarily focuses on the CBSE curriculum. This opinion is completely false, as NIT Trichy has always had and continues to have lots of students from Tamil Nadu State Board background passing out with flying colours.

    The best time to start preparation is at the beginning of class 11. But it is never

    too late to start the preparation if you are highly dedicated and motivated. The

    candidate must primarily focus on NCERT textbooks (CBSE syllabus), based

  • on which most of the questions will appear in JEE-

    Main. Also, sufficient practice of previous year's question papers is also highly


    Clearing JEE is difficult, but it is an achievable feat.

    Why NIT-Trichy?

    NIT Trichy provides a whole new range of opportunities for a student to

    improve his/her soft skills by making him/her a better manager than a mere

    engineer. The need of the hour is not just to develop good engineers, but also

    better professionals who possess good managerial skills. NIT Trichy opens up

    avenues for students to discover their passion by taking part in organizing

    various cultural and technical festivals.

    Another important aspect that makes NIT Trichy stand out is the fee structure.

    The institute fee per semester is Rs 72100 (includes tuition fee) and the hostel

    fee is also around Rs 31250, including mess fee. The government spends a lot

    of money on every student to shape him/her into a better professional. The

    institute fee structure for SC/ST candidates is lower than the normal fee,

    wherein they are exempted from paying the tuition fee of Rs 62500. Student

    loans can also be availed by every single student with ease. The campus has

    integrated bank facilities to assist students to avail the loan. The process to avail

    the loan is also very simple.

    Only the top rankers of JEE-Main are assured admission into NIT Trichy, as it

    is one of the topmost NITs. The competition to get into NIT Trichy is also very

    high. So, only the best minds in the country make it into NIT Trichy, which in

    turn ensures excellent student quality. Required reservation for students

    belonging to OBC and SC/ST categories are also made available to facilitate

    their admission to NIT Trichy. Every year 814 students are admitted into NIT

    labs and library facilities are available to the students 24X7, which any

    motivated student can make use of for research. The Internet Lab can be used

    for the recreational purpose as well. The highly qualified faculty members
