Over one lakh seats are sure to remain vacant in engineering and pharmacy courses this year in the convenor quota itself. This gets reflected in the difference between the available seats and registration of candidates for admissions that ended on Thursday.

By evening 1, 34,747 candidates registered for both engineering and pharmacy courses across the 59 helpline centres for the 2,34,540 seats available in the convenor quota in 672 engineering colleges and 264 pharmacy colleges. The remaining colleges are in the minority window, where admissions will be done separately.
