The Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) released results of the first round of allotment of seats in IITs, NITs and other centrally-funded technological institutes on Thursday.

IIT-Bombay got the cream of students this year too, with 67 of the top 100 rankers choosing the Powai campus to pursue their BTech.  Last year, it was 65.

IIT-Delhi retained its second position among the top choices of students, but toppers choosing the institute dropped from 30 to 28 this year.

The remaining five candidates have chosen IIT-Madras.

IIT-Kanpur, which usually gets two to three students from the top 100 ranks, was not the top preference for any of the 100 toppers this year.
