The IIT-JEE Board on Monday rejected suggestions that online counselling for admission to IITs is non-secure and prone to misuse, saying that not a single complaint has been received in this regard so far.
"Overall, 11555 out of 12676 students exercised their choices online and not a single complaint of misuse has been received," said Director of IIT Madras Prof M S Ananth.
The online counselling is being held for the first time this year for IITs, BHU and Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad and concerns have been expressed by some sections of the IIT faculty over its possible misuse.
Every step of the counselling process has been made completely secure, he said adding, even the acceptance letter containing allotment of seats can be generated only once.
He said wrong entries or falsely generated acceptance letters can be rectified by verification by one of the IIT-JEE offices.
