The single-window counselling for engineering admissions will begin on Monday as per schedule, with 182 sports quota candidates called for the process, said P. Mannar Jawahar, Vice-Chancellor, Anna University, Chennai, on Sunday.
“Of the 182 candidates, seven are appearing for medical counselling also. All of them have been called at 9 a.m., and we have made all arrangements to start the process on time,” he said.
With some confusion remaining over the number of colleges and seats available to students, a petition filed by private colleges challenging the All India Council for Technical Education's (AICTE) new norms for renewal of approval is coming up for hearing on Monday.
Kumar Jayant, Commissioner, Directorate of Technical Education, said the seat matrix, showing the seats in the colleges available for students, will use the data from the previous year.
“We will include any new colleges that are approved as and when they come up, and will remove from the list any colleges if they are disapproved,” he said.
