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

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.
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.
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
Trichy, of which 50% of the seats are reserved for students of Tamil Nadu. The
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
personally take care of the needs and demands of every single student with
