Hours before the commencement of the seat-selection process of the Common Entrance Test (CET), the government and private college managements were still nit-picking on the consensual agreement on how seats have to be split and how much money is to be collected this year.
The agreement is now slated to be signed on Thursday, 16th June 2011 at 11.00 am as the meeting convened on Wednesday, 15th June 2011 evening between the higher education department officials and the Karnataka Unaided Private Engineering Colleges Association (KUPECA) representatives remained inconclusive. Despite the last-minute haggling, the Karnataka Examinations Authority will go ahead with the medical examination for physically disabled candidates on Thursday, 16th June 2011. Seat-selection for special category students will commence on Friday. Though the fee structure and seat matrix have been agreed to, there were fresh differences over mutual transfer of students, holding three rounds of seat-selection and fee for lateral entry students. The private colleges want a total ban on mutual transfers this year, but the government said it will allow it albeit with heavy restrictions. Last year a student with rank 300 was replaced by a student who paid Rs 20,000. Merit students are made guinea pigs by touts. Since students have the option of making an informed choice during three rounds, we should not allow any further change in seats, D Jawahar, director, PES institutions, said. Colleges have also told the government to hold reconciliation meeting within 15 days from the completion of CET counseling to surrender the unfilled seats. Another demand from private colleges is now to give fee concession to diploma/B.Sc candidates who get admitted via lateral entry to second year engineering courses.
FRESH TALKS Seat-matrix and fee structure for 31 colleges under Karnataka Religious and Linguistic Minority Professional Colleges Association yet to be finalized Government will hold fresh talks with the association on Thursday, 16th June 2011 before finalizing deal.
