CET Cell lists eligibility conditions for candidates

By Our Staff Reporter

BANGALORE, FEB. 21. While allowing only Karnataka candidates to appear for the Common Entrance Test (CET), the CET Cell has listed certain conditions for a candidate to qualify as an applicant under the "Karnataka quota."

Candidates who do not satisfy any of these conditions will not be eligible for admission to the government seats in professional colleges. The Cell has asked such candidates not to apply for the test.

Conditions

Candidates should have studied in and passed out from one or more government or government-recognised educational institutions located in Karnataka for a minimum period of seven academic years commencing from standard 1 to II PUC/standard 12 as on July 1 of the year in which the entrance test is held and has appeared and passed SSLC/standard 10 or II PUC/standard 12 examination in Karnataka.

In case of candidates who have taken more than one year to pass a class or standard, the years of study are counted as one year only.

Candidates should have studied and passed I and II year PUC examination or equivalent examination within Karnataka from an educational institution run or recognised by the State Government and either of the parents should have studied in Karnataka for a minimum of seven years. This should be evident from the certificates issued by the institutions concerned.

In the case of candidates whose mother tongue is Kannada, Tulu or Kodava and who are residing outside Karnataka as on July 1, 2005, they should have passed the qualifying examination from a university or board or any other institution located outside Karnataka, provided that the candidates shall undergo a test, to be conducted by the CET Cell on May 5 at 11.00 a.m., to establish their ability to speak, read and write Kannada.

This test is mandatory also for candidates whose mother tongue is Kannada, Tulu or Kodava and who reside in the disputed Kannada-speaking areas of south Sholapur or Akkalkot or Jath or Gadhinglaj taluks in Maharashtra or Kasaragod in Kerala.

For children of defence personnel who have worked continuously in Karnataka for a minimum period of one year as on any day between July 1, 2004 and June 30, 2005, the condition is that they should have studied and passed the qualifying examination from any government or government-recognised institution in Karnataka.

In case of children of ex-servicemen who at the time of joining the defence service had declared a place in Karnataka as his hometown, proof of such domicile should be obtained and produced from the Deputy Director, Department of Sainik Welfare and Resettlement.

Children of Union and State Government employees who have worked in Karnataka for a minimum period of one year as on any day from July 1, 2004 to June 30, 2005 are also eligible provided they have passed the qualifying examination in Karnataka.

The CET Cell has warned that if any of the documents produced in respect of the clause claimed by a candidate is found to be false or incorrect, the seat selected by the candidate can be cancelled at any stage. The entire fee amount paid by the candidate will be forfeited, the Cell said.
