A total of 6,326 seats have remained vacant this year after two rounds of admission
Nearly 40 per cent seats in the MBA and MCA colleges in the
state have remained vacant, which has sparked a possibility of a third round of
reshuffling for admissions. A total of 6,326 seats have remained vacant this year
after two rounds of admission reshuffling. The colleges have been given permission
to carry out admission on the vacant seats on their own from Thursday. Academicians
are concerned over the high number of seats that have remained vacant.
In MBA colleges, there are 14,400 seats, of which 5,923 have remained vacant. In
MCA colleges, there are 5,000 seats, of which 1,033 seats have remained vacant.
Admission committee officials of the Gujarat Technological University (GTU) said
that a large number of students were granted admission online but cancelled the
same after they went to the college to pay the fee and found it lacking in infrastructure
and teaching staff.
They added that there are six colleges where not a single student has taken admission
and 35 colleges with less than ten students who have taken admission this year.
The admission committee has decided to keep the admission in two new colleges
that were recently granted permission in Ahmedabad and Rajkot on hold. Both the
colleges had 60 seats each.
