ANDHRA PRADESH

Engineering counselling postponed

Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD: The final phase of engineering counselling scheduled from October 1 has been postponed and is likely to be held after October 15.

The Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE) Chairman, K.C. Reddy, said the decision has been taken for some administrative reasons. The new dates would be notified soon.

Officials said they had to postpone the counselling in view of the likely addition of another 4,950 seats for which the AICTE gave permission recently.

Since most of these seats are in some preferred streams like biotechnology, ECE and computer sciences and that too in sought-after colleges, students stand to benefit.
