As per the latest notifications, the JEE Main and JEE Advanced exam will now be conducted by JEE Apex Board, not NTA. The ministry of education has reconstituted the JEE Apex Board (JAB) for the conduct of Joint Entrance Exam (JEE Main) for admission to undergraduate (UG) engineering programmes at Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs). This new examination body will be regulated by Professor Bhaskar Ramamurthy, former director of IIT Madras. The National Testing Agency (NTA) director-general Vineet Joshi will be the member secretary. In addition, IIT, NIT directors, and CBSE chairman are among the 17 members of the board.
