Engineering aspirants in Karnataka are expected to have a major disruption in schedule as the entire engineering seat matrix is yet to be released by the higher education department.
Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) does not has list is not yet in their hand and they are aiming to allow first round of NEET counselling ahead of engineering counselling.
But now that we are yet to get the entire seat matrix from the higher education department, we will have to allow NEET counselling to start first,”
Last week, 12,586 engineering seats were made available for making choices from 34 colleges only. Remaining 206 colleges are yet to share the seats under CET counselling.
Meanwhile, 65,025 students have registered for NEET counselling with KEA. This includes students from the Karnataka as well as from across India, who have an all-India NEET rank and want to take admission in medical/dental colleges in Karnataka.
The reason for the delay is the consensual agreement that is signed between individual private colleges and the government and, mainly fixes the fee of the courses. The private engineering colleges have refused to accept the eight percent hike, and are sorting it out with the government.
