VIJAYAWADA: Students in the district showed their keenness to get admission into the three IIITs in the State, as the district administration received a sizeable number of applications from the candidates at the counselling conducted in all the revenue divisional headquarters on Saturday.
The officials sent details of the applications to the headquarters of Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies (RGUKT) in Hyderabad, under which the three IIITs at Basara (Adilabad district), Nuzvid (Krishna district) and Idupulapaya (Kadapa district) function, after verifying the details of each candidate. The verification was done considering the parameters of caste, marks in qualifying examinations and photo identities of the respective candidates. The final list of candidates selected by the university would be released online in about three days.
Sub-Collector Gaurav Uppal said that the verification of the applications was completed locally and the same had been sent to the University headquarters. The issue of preferences of students for a particular course and a particular institute was dealt with. However, the university would see the permutations and the combinations before finalising the allotment to students. The students would be equipped with laptops and other modern gadgets .
