BANGALORE: The seat selection process for professional colleges across the State will commence as per schedule on June 20, Higher Education Minister V.S. Acharya told presspersons here on Thursday.
Contrary to what has been reported in certain sections of the media, Dr. Acharya is confident that the required approvals from the nodal regulatory authorities for engineering, medical and Ayush courses would arrive on time. He said that the seat matrix for 145 colleges was ready, and among the few colleges yet to submit the same is the BMS College of Engineering.
Notably, five colleges have requested to transfer their share of private quota seats to the government quota, the Minister added.
The government is yet to receive clearance on six government medical colleges. Sources in the Medical Education Department said the required green signal, prerequisite for conducting admissions, may be delayed beyond June 20.
However, the counselling is likely to proceed without these colleges.
Once the clearance is given, these seats will be added to the seat matrix in the second round, officials said.
