What is CSAB 2013 ?

CDS Exam Question Papers and Study Material


Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) was constituted by the Govt. of India to coordinate  admissions for the candidates from India to UG degree programmes in engineering, technology and architecture based on the All India Rank obtained through class 12/other Qualifying Examination and Joint Entrance Examination, JEE (Main).


CSAB 2013 is constituted in order to facilitate the seat allocation to students.

The merit list (All India Rank) for admission to NITs and other CFTIs will be prepared by CBSE by giving 40% weightage (suitably normalized) to class XII (or equivalent examination) and 60% to the performance in JEE (Main) Examination.


CBSE and CSAB are two different and independent boards.

CBSE conducted JEE (Main) examination and published the merit list.

CSAB only uses the merit list published by CBSE for seat allocation purposes.

CSAB is not responsible for any error either in marks or in merit ranks of JEE (Main) -2013.

Both Government and Private Institutes will participate in seat allocation through CSAB.

Government Technical Institutes (GFTIs) are National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT and IITDM), Centrally Funded Technical Institutes (CFTIs) and State Funded Technical Institutes.

Private Institutes are called Self Financed Technical Institutes (SFTIs).

Seats in CSAB will be allocated on the basis of JEE (Main) All India Ranks of the candidates provided by CBSE.

No other rank will be used for seat allocation.

In NITs, 50% of the seats will be from Home State (HS) Quota and the remaining 50% from Others State (OS) Quota, i.e., all Other States and UTs except the Home State.

As per the decision of the Apex Body (Joint Admission Board) of IIT admission, this year the following restrictions will be applicable in seat allocation of CSAB:

1. If a candidate rejects a seat allocation in CSAB, she/he will not be eligible for any further rounds in CSAB including Spot Round and Extra Spot Round.

2. If a candidate at any stage withdraws from CSAB after being provisionally admitted to an Institute, she/he will not be considered for any future rounds of CSAB seat allocation including Spot Round and Extra Spot Round.

Personal Data along with bank details will be required at the time of online registration in CSAB website.

Candidates are advised to carefully choose their institutes and branches, for there is no provision of money back if one chooses not to join the allocated institute.

Before clicking your choice, make sure that you know enough about all the institutes and the branches you are choosing.

In Spot Round both Government Institutes (NITs, CFTIs and IIITs) and Private Institutes (SFTIs) will participate and in Extra Spot Round only Private Institutes (SFTIs) will participate

In Spot Round the collected fee is non-refundable if seat is allocated to a candidate.

The collected fee will be sent to the allocated Institute by CSAB even if the candidate does not take admission there.

The collected fee will be refunded to the candidate by CSAB in case there is no seat allocation.
