30,000 engineering seats left vacant in Kerala

As the date for the admission to professional courses comes to an end, more than 30,000 engineering seats have been left vacant in engineering colleges across Kerala.

Mr G.P.C Nayar, President, Federation of Associations of Unaided Professional Colleges of India said, "In over 40% of the 130 engineering colleges in Kerala, the number of students was less than one-fourth of their total strength. A large number of students have opted for colleges in other states."

A total of 1,19,025 lakh candidates had appeared for the Kerala Engineering Agriculture Medical (KEAM) entrance examination.

Around 61,671 boys and 57,354 girls had appeared for the examination which was held at 327 centres across the Kerala state.

However, more than 6,000 students failed to get the minimum mark required for the plus-two examinations.

Around 92,000 engineering seats are available for admissions in Kerala.
