Here is a deadline for engineering colleges from the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) to submit complete details of students whom they have admitted to under-graduate courses. If the colleges fail to meet the deadline, the admissions will be declared invalid.
According to the AICTE’s notification, the deadline for engineering colleges is July 30. By that day, colleges must complete the admission process and upload the admitted students’ details on the AICTE website.
Following a recent Supreme Court judgment, the AICTE issued the notification and a copy of the same has been sent to Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) to stick to the schedule.
According to the notification, the KEA needs to conduct its Common Entrance Test (CET) in the month of May and the results should be declared on or before June 5. The first round of the counselling must be concluded on or before June 30. The academic year 2013 must begin on August 1, 2013.
In 2012, the Medical Council of India (MCI) had insisted upon a similar schedule for medical colleges. As per the MCI’s directive, medical colleges must complete their admission process by September 30. The colleges will have to follow the calendar that was issued the previous year.
Responding to it, SP Kulakarni, administrative officer, KEA, said, “We need to stick to the schedule given by the AICTE and MCI. The authorities issued notifications following Supreme Court order and we cannot violate that.”
Kulkarni added that the KEA would complete the entire counselling-cum-seat allotment process for engineering courses by July 30 and for medical courses by September 30.
“We will start the counselling for both the courses at a time,” said Kulakarni.
