Among IITs, IIT BHU has maximum number (38) of vacant seats. These seats are of that branch that is supposed to be not lucrative anymore.

Also, ISM Dhanbad which has been recently recognized under IIT has shown good performance, there are only 23 seats left out of a total of 912.
And in the NITs, the reason for the NITs vacant seat, as per the HRD source, is fewer students of respective states have not registered for state quota seats.
