The process of choosing options of engineering discipline will commence from September 3. A meeting of CET committee held in Hyderabad on Friday has discussed the schedule and finalised the date. According to the fresh schedule, the web options can be registered from September 3 to 14 and two days time- i.e. September 15 and 16 will be given for making changes and corrections. The allotment of seats will be done on September 17 and the classes will begin from September 23, according to Prof P Jayaprakasha Rao, Chairman of the State Higher Education Council.
Now the rankers have to choose their college and discipline online in the next fifteen days. The meeting has reviewed the situation in the aftermath of resumption of duty by the lecturers and staff of polytechnic colleges. As the situation has been slowly improving, the CET committee felt it apt to go in for the web options process to avoid further delay.
According to Chief counselling officer Raghunath, more than 1.20 lakh rankers have attended to the verification of their certificates in the past 11 days and it may cross 1.5 lakh in the next three days. The rankers can get their certificates verified till September 3 and no candidate would be denied the opportunity, he made it clear.
A total of 10,586 students attended to verification process on Friday out of them 5,034 were from Seemandhra region and 5,552 candidates from Telangana districts. “We hope the entire verification of candidates seeking admission under convener quota would be over by September 3. Anyone can approach us if he or she failed to do it due to the agitations in the State and we will definitely consider their plea” Raghunath explained
The CET committee has also taken stock of the situation arising out of High Court verdict on admissions under management quota (Category B). The High Court in its verdict on August 17 has asked the Council to hold a meeting with the petitioners (the managements) and discuss the issue on the modalities. Before issuing fresh guidelines, the Council thought it better to hold a meeting- as directed by the High Court. Accordingly, a meeting is convened on Saturday with all the 34 petitioners of the case at the Council in which the proposed guidelines may be discussed.
The main issue of the meeting would be how to avoid the multiple blocking of seats by the rankers. Normally, every student will choose nearly 10-12 colleges and at least four to five branches. This multiple blocking of institutions poses a problem for the managements and the Council to carry out allotment in the remaining seats which may fall vacant after allotment of single seat to each candidate.
The managements which have already sounded a discordant note on proceeding with the guidelines framed under GO No 74 issued one-and-half year back, have already gone on record saying that since they have already made admissions as per the direction of the Justice Nooty Rammohana Rao, it may not be possible for them to rescind the admissions.
The verdict of the two judge bench of chief Justice Kalyan Sen Gupta and Justice Rohini has nullified the judgment of Justice Nooty Rammohana Rao. The two judge bench has asked the Council to frame guidelines only after having a dialogue with the petitioners. It is now a tricky situation for the Council on Category B and any unilateral decision would end up another legal tangle.
