Hyderabad: The ongoing certificate verification process is being carried out at a brisk phase. Every day around 10,000 ranks are being called for verification in Andhra Pradesh State. In wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to rule out an extension to engineering counselling till October 31, the process in Telangana State is likely to commence in two days.
Speaking to Young Hans from New Delhi, Prof. L Venugopal Reddy, chairman, Andhra Pradesh State Council for Higher Education (APSCHE), said, “The admission committee members along with the principal secretaries and commissioners of technical education of both the states would discuss and chalk out a schedule for the counselling. I am hopeful that the counselling would begin in two days.”
Reddy informed that first phase of counselling would be completed by August last week and classes would commence from September 1 as per the apex court’s directive.
The APSCHE chairman also said that due to delay in the process, several students from the state were taking admissions in neighbouring states. The decision to start the process was taken for the larger interest of the students.
The certificate verification process is being held in 13 districts of Andhra Pradesh and also in Hyderabad. About 34 helpline centres are being used for verifying the certificates.
Prof. Reddy made it clear that verification would be completed by August 23 which would be followed by web options and seat allotment immediately.
The counselling would conclude by August 31 and classes would commence from September 1, as per the Supreme Court’s ruling.
It might be recalled that around 3.95 lakh students had appeared in EAMCET held in the united Andhra Pradesh state in May. A total of 2.85 lakh students cleared the engineering entrance test. About 3.5 lakh seats are up for grabs in both the states, while there are only two lakh eligible students. This means that 1.5 lakh seats may remain vacant.
