Counselling: No glitches as personnel get used to process

1,775 seats of 8 engineering colleges added to matrix

Students also had the added advantage of selecting from an additional 1,775 seats as the seat matrix of eight more engineering colleges were approved, late on Thursday evening.

The counselling, which was plagued by lengthy delays due to technical glitches, was more or less on schedule on Friday. Officials at the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) put the smoother progress down to the personnel on duty understanding the processes.

KEA Administrative Officer S P Kulkarni said, “The counselling went off without delay and we were able to close the day on schedule.”  Students and parents were also relieved at the relatively faster pace of counselling. Several students whose counselling was scheduled for Saturday were present at the venue to get a feel of the process. A student said, “Our counselling is scheduled for Saturday, but we came here to see the procedure.”

Meanwhile, the eight colleges, whose seat matrix was approved by the AICTE included six government engineering colleges in Chamarajanagar, Hassan, Hoovinahadagali, K R Pet, Raichur and Ramanagar respectively. While the six government colleges put together, accounted for  1,440 seats, two private colleges, NIET - Mysore and SJMIT, included in the seat matrix accounted for an additional 335 seats.

The counselling will progress ahead as per schedule for rank 3001 to 4700.
