The seat allotment for TS EAMCET 2016 has been done today on 16 July, commencing admissions for engineering courses in Telangana.
Update: TS EAMCET allotment has been declared and allotment order can be downloaded from tseamcet.nic.in now.
As reported, the seat allotment for TS EAMCET 2016 was to be done on 14 July, however, the council has not published the results yet. The official site isn’t displaying any notification regarding the allotment dates other than that the option entry process is closed and allotments should be done soon. Many engineering aspirants have set their sights on Saturday when the allotment of seats under Telangana EAMCET will be done.
Officials have said that only around 68 thousand candidates had participated in the document verification process while a total of 1.33 lakh had taken the exam which was held in May. Over 1.03 lakh had qualified the test and were allowed to attend counselling. Last year too, only around 61 thousand had attended the counselling for TS EAMCET.
Nearly 75 thousand are up for grab in engineering colleges this year including government as well private institutions. However, the removal of affiliation of many colleges past week may have affected the seat matrix but either way, thousands of seats are expected to go vacant as the number of candidates participating in the counselling is even less than the seats. The situation has left the state government and officials worried.
Telangana state council of higher education is declaring the first seat allotment today while the final allotments would be out by 30 July and classes are poised to begin from 2nd August. Aspirants should note that this allotment is being released for engineering aspirants since the medical entrance was held last week on 9th July and results for EAMCET 2 were released yesterday only.
Engineering aspirants were allowed to exercise their web options until 13 July after the extension of the date. There are also reports that the first seat allotment would be declared on 16 July but official notification is displaying the release of allotments scheduled for 14 July. Aspirants are advised to watch out the official site for the notice. Since the dates were extended for the option entry process, the council may have altered the allotment release date too.
After the release of EAMCET seat allotment in Telangana state today, the candidates will have to complete the admission formalities within next few days as per the notification of EAMCET 2016. The notice will be put up at tseamcet.nic.in after allotment is out.
