On conclusion of first phase of web counselling (EAMCET), 30,000 seats still remain vacant in Telangana, said a newspaper report. Only 55,000 students have opted for the counselling options and will be issued the allotment order by August 30.
Nearly one lakh seats had been removed from EAMCET counselling as 174 engineering colleges were not given an approval.
Dr K. Raghunath, chief camp officer, EAMCET, informed that the consolidated numbers haven't come yet, but about 55,000 students have REGISTERED and exercised options. A total of 85,455 seats were available in engineering colleges.
The High Court on Monday had directed JNTU Hyderabad to send a list of colleges that have met the faculty norms, though any such list has not been, so far. It was mentioned that the university is thinking of challenging the single judge order in a division bench of the High Court.
