In an unprecedented situation, each student who has filled the forms for admission in engineering and pharmacy professional courses is set to get a seat and still 2,239 seats will remain vacant. This has happened for the first time as the number of applicants who registered for admission is less than the number of professional seats! There are 59,239 professional engineering and pharmacy seats in the state. However, on the last date for registration of applications on Monday, 11th June, 2012 the total number of students who registered themselves was only 57,000.
This means that even if every student takes admission, a good 2,239 seats will be vacant! Last year, there were 52,600 seats while 50,684 students had applied for admission. There were no takers for 1,000 computer engineering seats, 1,500 electronics and communication engineering seats and 1,200 information technology seats. Around 4,000 pharmacy seats too had remained vacant. Admission Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC) officials said that given the current situation there is a likelihood of 7,000-odd professional seats remaining vacant in Gujarat this year. Last year, students who had cleared the supplementary exams were also given admission to fill seats which were lying vacant. The ACPC officials have urged the students not to waste the hard earned money of their parents by taking admission in management quota seats. Last year, mechanical, civil and auto mobile engineering had remained the most coveted branches of engineering with students having high merit opting for these courses. This was mainly due to boom in the construction and auto mobile industry in the state.
