Students and parents can ask their queries using hashtag #EducationMinisterGoesLive on Facebook and Twitter. Usually JEE Main registrations begin in the month of September. But due to COVID-19, JEE Main 2020 was delayed by over five months. This also has pushed the upcoming JEE Main 2021 dates tentatively by over one month.
Recently, Dr Pokhriyal also announced that NTA is discussing the prospect of reduced syllabus for JEE Main 2021. There are also reports that JEE main 2021 will be conducted in February 2021 as the discussion between various examination boards such as CBSE, ICSE is still ongoing.
A campaign will be launched by @eduminofindia to seek views from students, parents & teachers on how & when to conduct the exams next year.

JEE Main 2021 In Multiple Languages
Even though many have not taken this aspect into consideration, the delay in JEE Main 2021 session might be due to new languages added. Dr Pokhriyal had previously notified that JEE Main 2021 will be conducted in more regional languages. Integrating these languages in the computer-based examination mode will definitely consume a lot of time for NTA.
Previously, JEE Main was only conducted in 3 languages – English, Hindi and Gujarati. But now more languages are being introduced in accordance with the National Education Policy 2020.
Currently, students are taking admissions in various colleges as the JEE Main Counselling has concluded for the candidates of 2020 session. JoSAA Cut Off for various colleges such as NITs, IIITs has been released officially.
