Why is the AADAHR card mandatory during the application?

Your Aadhaar details ensure accuracy of the application details. It becomes your single identity proof. It also helps in ascertaining identities of the applicants at the examination centres in a convenient and hassle free manner.

I don’t have an AADHAR card. Where can I get help?

If you have not yet enrolled for Aadhaar but are entitled to obtain Aadhaar as per section 3 of Aadhaar Act, refer to the list of facilitation centres for AADAHR enrolment here.  CBSE has specially set up facilitation centres in each city of examination for the purpose of Aadhaar enrolment. The applicants can approach such facilitation centres who will not charge any amount from any applicant for Aadhaar enrolment.

AADHAR enrolment facility is not available at my facilitation centre.

Submit a request for Aadhaar enrolment. The facilitation centre will issue you a registration number. Enter registration number at the time of filling online application form for JEE (Main) 2017.

My state has joined the JEE (Main) system recently.

If you are from Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Nagaland, Odisha and some other institutions, will be notified about the admission criteria by the concerned authorities.

If you are a candidate seeking admission to the institutions in these states please fill in the JEE (Main)–2017 application form online.
