Supreme Court has announced that there will not be a second round of EAMCET 2014 engineering counselling for students seeking admission in the engineering colleges in Andhra Pradesh.
SC has refused the Andhra Pradesh State Council for Higher Education (APSCHE), seeking for permission to conduct second round of counselling for engineering courses.
APSCHE had moved the SC for submitting the details about the conclusion of first round of counselling on August 31. As per the SC directions, classes had commenced on September 01, 2014.
APSCHE asked the SC for permission to conduct the second round of counselling, since about 30,000 students asked for the change in options. Now, SC refused the order and told students to get admission in the colleges which they have got seats in the first round.
One of the petitioner filed petition in SC to allow them to hold second round of counselling, since about 60,000 seats were unfilled. If the judgment means there would be no counselling for management quota seats, the candidates who intend to secure admissions in this quota would forgo the opportunity.
Counselling for the category B seats will end on October 05, 2014. Meanwhile, 174 engineering colleges had sought SC to add them in the counselling process but the SC had refused their plea.
A total of 12,000 engineering seats in Telangana and 60,000 seats in Andhra Pradesh have been left vacant.
