Bengaluru, DHNS: The counselling for engineering seats under the Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (ComedK) began on Tuesday.
Allotments were made to over 2,700 candidates who attended the counselling at NMKRV College in Jayanagar. They were allotted seats till late in the night. On day one, counselling was conducted for students whose ranks were between one and 3,000. As many as 200 candidates chose not to attend the counselling on Monday.
Vinay (name changed) one of the students who attended the counselling, said software glitches delayed the process. “They started about two hours late due to this,” said the student. Meanwhile, Ranjana (name changed), another student complained that she had to stay back till late in the night due to the delay. ComedK’s chief executive A S Srikanth, however, said there was a half-hour delay as it was the first day of counselling. On Wednesday, those from ranks 3,000 to 6,000 have been asked to come. Meanwhile, even as the state has fixed the fee for engineering colleges under ComedK quota at Rs.1.21 lakh and 1.70 lakh, several colleges were offering seats for as low as Rs 60,000.
