The Indian Ministry of Education has announced that undergraduate admissions under the Direct Admission of Students Abroad (DASA) Scheme for the year 2022-23 will be made based on the ranks acquired by students in the Joint Entrance Examination-Main (JEE – Main) led by National Testing Agency (NTA).


Around 15% of total seats at the International Institute of Information Technology (IIITs), National Institute of Technology (NITs) and centrally funded technical institutions, except Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), have now been reserved for the students of this category.
