    resulted in many new initiatives.

    Several faculty members, technical and administrative staff members of all the IITs took part in

    many activities ranging from confidential work to serving as institute representatives. We thank

    all the faculty and staff who have contributed in any way to the conduct of IIT-JEE 2012.

    Our thanks are also due to an important cog in the wheel of the JEE machinery, the staff

    working in the JEE offices of all the participating institutes. Their contribution in the success of

    every JEE, including JEE-2012, is immense. We especially would like to highlight the contribution

    of Mr. Dinesh, Mr. Lekhraj Sharma, Mr. Ashok Kumar, and Mr. Kishori Lal of the JEE office, IIT

    number of sleepless nights.
