From 2012, counseling of students who crack the Joint Entrance Examination will be held online, CM Mamata Banerjee has said. She announced this on Monday after there was chaos at the Salt Lake Stadium during counseling for this year's successful candidates. Counseling of students who cracked the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) would be held online from 2012, chief minister Mamata Banerjee announced after chaos at Salt Lake stadium on Monday. The counseling process for this year's successful candidates was being held there.
Monday was the first day of the counseling session of this year's JEE. While 1.10 lakh students had appeared for the examination, around 90,000 students cracked it. Students whose family income is less than Rs 2.5 lakh a year were asked to bring their documents on Monday at the counseling session for availing scholarships. But chaos broke out when the authorities declared late in the evening that they were unable to attend all the students. Nearly 1,200 students were in the queue when the process had to be stopped for the day. Peeved with this, students and their family members allegedly ransacked the room where the counseling session was going on. Allegations also surfaced that police had to resort to lathi charge to disperse the irate (angry) students. Police officers however refuted the charge. In West Midnapore, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee expressed her anguish and said, "The incident was uncalled for. I have warned the joint entrance council. From next year the counseling process would be held online."
