SJCE-KEA meeting held to resolve seat row

Final decision will be made soon, says KEA officer

Representatives of Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering (SJCE), Mysore, met officials of the Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) on Wednesday, to decide on the contentious issue of seat sharing between the government and the management.

A number of students who had opted for seats at the prestigious college under the CET were in for a shock when they found out that the college authorities had withdrawn the seats on the grounds that the government had taken more than its share.

The college authorities had moved the High Court of Karnataka in this regard. The court had ruled in the favour of the college. 

The final decision will be made soon, said S P Kulkarni, Administrative Officer, KEA.
Meanwhile, Comed-K has announced on its website that the surrender of seats got in the first round will not be allowed during or after the second round of counselling that begins on July 19.

Only change of course and college will be allowed. However, a candidate may hold on to the seat allotted during first round.

Second round CET

The second round of seat allotment process began on Wednesday night, with students being allowed to enter options at 11 pm.

July 22 is the last date for entering options.  


* If a candidate is willing to participate in the second round, he/she must enter options afresh. If the candidate gets a seat in the colleges opted for by him/her in the second round, the seat from the second round will be confirmed and that from the first round gets cancelled. 

* If the candidate does not get any seat in second round, the seat allotted in first round stands confirmed.

* Candidates are requested to give as many options as possible even though the seat matrix does not show any vacancy as consequential vacancies may arise.

* All candidates who have been allotted seats afresh in the second round or those who have confirmed the seats in the first round shall compulsorily join the colleges after making payment and report to KEA portal for confirmation.

* Candidates who wish to cancel their  seat can do so before 11 am on July 22.
The amount will be refunded, if any, after deducting processing fee.
