The detailed notification will be issued before the commencement of counseling session.
The admissions committee meeting held on Tuesday discussed the dates and decided to wait for the Admission and Fee Regulation Committee (AFRC) recommendations on the fee structure before finalising the exact date.
"We are hopeful of starting the counselling before June 26," said Chairman of the Andhra Pradesh State Council for Higher Education (APSCHE) K. Jayaprakash Rao.
This year, a total of 2,76,995 students appeared EAMCET 2013 exam. Around 2,01,308 students qualified for engineering and 88,778 students in Medical.
He also said that fee structure for the professional courses need to be finalized by the board and the State Government.
He said that 14 new counselling centres had been added this year taking the total number to 67.
The online counselling for category B or management quota seats in engineering colleges will begin simultaneously with the first phase of counselling for convener quota seats to minimize the ‘pre-booking' of slots at tier-I colleges by payment of capitation fee.
However, admission to management quota seats in medical stream will continue as per the procedure followed last year, leading to no checks on collection of capitation fee by private college managements, which have been consistently demanding a uniform fee structure for admissions made under different categories.
Candidates advised to take all the necessary original documents for counseling and need to be attested with the signature of the government officials.
All applicants who appeared for Engineering, Agriculture & Medical Common Entrance Test (EAMCET 2013) are eligible to get engg seat in any college in Andhra Pradesh.
Around 3 lakh seats are available in 720 engineering colleges provided in all over AP. Only 2,90,015 candidates appeared for EAMCET 2013 exam.
In 2012 over a 90,000 engineering seats left in all over AP. The poor rush for the engineering is also putting the colleges survival in danger.
