The UGET COMEDK 2017 results are out and the rank cards are available online for download but the next phase of counseliing is getting delayed as many constituent colleges have failed to notify the number of seats available this year, according to the executive secretary of COMEDK.
The planned online counselling this year has been tentatively rescheduled to Friday, June 9, 2017 from the earlier notified date of Tuesday, June 6. However, it depends on how many colleges furnish their details for the students to choose from as the top Bangalore-based colleges are delaying their seat matrix plan still.[To check 2016 cutoff rank for colleges under COMEDK, click here.]
For online counselling, students have to pay Rs.5,000, which will be adjusted later as part of the first term fee. The online counselling session of COMEDK will provide students to give their options of engineering colleges and in combinations as well. A mock allotment of seats will be done and the students are given a choice to change their options. After finalisation of this process, real allotment of seats will be made.
The Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMED-K) will hold the actual counselling (personal, not online) on June 21, 2017 but students are worried that they may be forced to opt for more expensive seats in private colleges due to the delay. Though Higher Education Minister Basavaraj Rayaraddi had assured students that he would speak to COMEDK authorities, so far no clarification on the counselling schedule has been officially announced by the COMED-K.
Mr. S. Kumar, executive secretary of COMEDK said that there was no request from the government to hold the counselling before June 27 so far. “We have not received any request from the State government and will ensure that we make up for the delay by announcing the mock allotment of seats on June 16, while the real allotment will be on June 21,” he told The Hindu.
As per the current seat matrix, 45% of seats in private colleges are given under the government quota on the payment of about Rs.50,000 as fee, 30% seats are part of COMEDK quota given under Rs.180,000 per annum fee and the remaining 25% are given by the respective managements on payment of Rs.10 to Rs.30 lakhs depending on their reputation and demand, including the NRI quota.
The problem faced by many students is over the allotment of seats before the K-CET seats are given. Many times, students are forced to forego an allotted seat under KCET and opt for ComedK seat or vice versa depending on the college reputation.
Currently KCET counselling is underway since June 5, 2017 and the full schedule is here:
