Over 10,000 engineering and pharmacy seats and over 7,000 MBA and MCA seats had remained vacant after admissions were closed by ACPC. The seats were handed over to the respective colleges to carry out admissions.
The colleges were to grant admissions and send a list to the ACPC and the Gujarat Technological University (GTU) by September 5. However, the officials said that only a few colleges had sent the list.
The officials said that" This is because the GTU had directed the colleges to take their time in finding students and put in extra effort to fill the vacant seats without worrying about meeting the September 5 deadline."
Despite three rounds of admission process 5,933 MBA seats and 2,438 MCA seats had remained vacant. The number of seats that could not find any takers in the state's engineering and pharmacy colleges is even higher at 10,678 seats.
