Karnataka Examination Authority, Executive Director, Rame Gowda said that the files pertaining to the matter were still with the government and that all the seats would be added by Thursday. 

Seats still missing

Mohan Revaday, a parent who was busy with the process of entering options for his son on Wednesday, found that the engineering seats of institutions like PES group of Institutions, REVA University and JSS Mysore were still missing from the seat matrix. 

“My son wants to study BE in computer science and we were looking for engineering seats in REVA University but were not able to find them. Later I checked seats of PES University and JSS and even these I could not find,” he said
