There is yet some hope for those aspiring to get into the top engineering schools of India. After the second round of admissions closed at the Indian Institutes of Technology, there are still 326 seats up for grabs.
They will come up in the third round of admission, the details of which will be out July 10. Data from the IIT-Kanpur shows that after the second round, 326 students did not book their seats as they were not happy with the courses they were allotted. This year, IITs took one more step to ensure seats do not go a begging three rounds of admission. When the issue of vacant seats in IITs, IT-BHU and ISM-Dhanbad was discussed, it was noted the primary reason for the vacancies was that students accept admission, deposit the advance amount and then do not join the course. It is hoped that conducting three rounds will reduce vacancies, IIT-Kanpur director Sanjay Dhande said. After the first round closed, 299 seats were vacant, but more students backed out later. When admissions closed in 2009, it was clear there weren't enough qualified candidates to fill up available seats. In 2010, about 100 seats remained unfilled. The Joint Admission Board has advised students to desist from leaving a course once admission has been accepted.
