All the above options require fulfilment of certain academic performance related criteria.

Preparatory courses : The seats reserved for SC, ST and PwD candidates which remain vacant will be allotted to the candidates of respective categories for admission to a preparatory course of 1-year duration on the basis of relaxed admission criteria (see 22. RANK LISTS).

Admission is given to the candidates in the preparatory course provided (i) the seats reserved for the respective category are vacant, (ii) candidates satisfy minimum norms, and (iii) candidates have not accepted a seat in the preparatory course earlier.

Selected IITs will run preparatory courses of one-year duration for SC, ST and PwD candidates intended to prepare them to pursue the academic program (for Academic Year 2021-22) to which they have been allocated. At the end of this course, candidates are declared as ‘pass’ or ‘fail’. The institute at which one-year preparatory course is run for a candidate may be different from the institute allocated to the candidate for their academic program.

On successful completion of the course, the candidates will be offered direct admission in July 2021 (Academic Year 2021-22) to the already allotted undergraduate course.

Candidates admitted to the preparatory course are also eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2021 subject to fulfilling other eligibility criteria.

Filling-in of choices for preparatory courses is through the same online portal.

vii) Supernumerary seats for female candidates : A decision has been taken at the level of the IIT Council to, inter alia, improve the gender balance in the undergraduate programs at the IITs to at least 20% in 2020-21 by creating supernumerary seats specifically for female candidates, without any reduction in the number of seats that was made available to gender neutral candidates in the previous academic year (i.e. academic year 2019-2020). Accordingly, to achieve this objective, and in accordance with the directions of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, supernumerary seats will thus be created and offered to female candidates for improving the gender balance in the undergraduate programs in IITs. These supernumerary seats will be offered (a) to only those female candidates who are declared qualified in JEE (Advanced) - 2020, and (b) strictly based on the performance in JEE (Advanced) - 2020.

The reservation policy as per Government of India norms as existing at present will be applicable to these supernumerary seats as well. The detailed procedure for implementation of the above shall be set out in the Business Rules of the Joint Seat Allocation Authority, 2020.
