Please note that the number of seats provided here is subject to change. As per information, there might be an increase of about 1000 seats across IITs from 2018. All students are accordingly advised to refer to the seat matrix for JEE Advanced 2018, as and when it is released. This is usually after the declaration of the results.

To comply with the directive issued by the Ministry of Human Resource Development for maintaining a minimum of 14% quota for girls in each of the IITs, the existing seats are going to be increased. According to the ministry, each IIT should maintain a merit list exclusively for girls from the central merit list. In other words, should an IIT fail to meet the mandated 14% quota, it should prepare a second merit list to bridge the shortfall. However, this quota is ‘supernumerary’ and will not be at the expense of the number of boys that was admitted in 2017. The move is specifically aimed at stopping the decline in the number of girl students making it to the IITs.

The directive would eventually lead to an increase in seats in all the IITs including in the Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad. The forthcoming increase in seats will be to the extent of 521, that is, a total of 11,509 from 10,988 in 2017. To accommodate the 4.74% increase, the IITs will have to augment their infrastructure. Below mentioned are the total number of seats in each IITs.
