JEE Main 2020: No Minimum Marks, Only Class XII Pass Certificate For NITs, CFTIs

New Delhi: The Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) has relaxed the rules for admission into the various National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs) in view of the coronavirus pandemic, Hindustan Times (HT) reported.

Union HRD Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal on Thursday said that the Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) has decided to relax the eligibility criterion for admissions to NITs and other CFTIs.

“JEE Main 2020 qualified candidates will now only need to obtain a passing certificate in class XII examination irrespective of the marks obtained,” he wrote on his Twitter handle.

The usual criteria are that a candidate should have at least 75 percent aggregate marks in Class XII (or an equivalent) Board examination or should figure out in the top 20 percentile of successful candidates in their respective Class XII (or equivalent) Board examination.

Recently, the Joint Admission Board also decided that the candidates who clear the JEE Advanced will be eligible for admission to IITs irrespective of their Class XII marks.
