JoSAA was formed with the purpose of reducing the number of vacant seats across IITs, NITs, IIITs and GFTIs, but over 3,000 vacant seats across the institutions reflect that increased rounds of seat allotment has hardly helped the crisis. Among NITs+System, there is not a single institute that is able to fill all the allotted seats.

Moreover, as many as 100 undergraduate engineering seats have remained vacant at IITs too. This number of vacant seats at IITs is double the number of vacancies in last year. This year, the seat allotment rounds under JoSAA were increased to 6 rounds as compared to 4 last year.
