The second phase of counselling for biology-based courses and engineering courses through the Centralised Admissions Committee will be from September 6 to September 13, according to a release.

The first day of counselling will be for B. Pharm, for both other States and all categories. There are six seats available for this course. This will be followed by the other States' counselling for Bachelor of Physiotherapy (BPT), B.Sc Medical Lab Technology and B.Sc Nursing.

Counselling for biology-based courses will take place on September 6 and September 7. Engineering counselling will take place from September 9. There are a total of 311 seats available for candidates in the second phase for biology-based courses.

Other States candidates will have a total of three seats for pharmacy and paramedical courses and 22 seats for engineering in Pondicherry Engineering College and Perunthalaivar Kamarajar Institute of Engineering and Technology.

Additional seats may be available if the government or the colleges decides to sponsor more seats through CENTAC, if candidates who were placed through the first phase of counselling fail to join their course or if All India Quota or Non-Resident Indian Quota seats are surrendered, according to the release.

Candidates for the second phase of counselling will not receive individual call letters and interested candidates should attend the counselling along with a demand draft for Rs. 400 (Rs. 150 for Scheduled Caste or Scheduled Tribe Candidates) drawn in favour of “Convenor CENTAC”.

Candidates who have passed the supplementary exam and applied to CENTAC earlier can also attend the counselling, the release said.
