TBJEE is a state-owned regulatory body responsible to conduct entrance examinations in the state for higher education. The main idea to have this body is to reduce the burden on students to fill out forms of different colleges, sit for separate exams and pay the application fees each time they apply for a course. With the establishment of TBJEE on April 7 1989, the entire process of application, examination and selection became more transparent, hassle-free and affordable for both the students and the government.
