Students upset over cancellation

 
A number of students from the districts of Karnataka said that this situation would not have arisen if the government had conducted the KCET counselling on time.

A student from Bidar said “I have come to Bangalore three times already and each time I have to spend at least Rs 800 for transport alone. My rank for KCET is good and if the counselling had been conducted I would have secured a seat by now.”

Students also said that they were left with the possibility of having to pay Rs 4.5 lakhs to 5 lakhs because of the delay in announcing the KCET seat matrix and therefore the delay in counselling. “A government seat for an MD course will cost me around Rs 20,000. But if I take up a seat via Comed-K then I will have to pay at least Rs 4 lakhs,” Rakesh (name changed) said.

Other students accused the Government of deliberately trying to delay the counselling for KCET as it would benefit private lobbies. “The government and the managements function in collusion and this is the case every year. Seats are blocked in KCET too each year,” she said.
