Due to lack of qu-ota, students said they lost out on seats in some of the best colleges in AP.

Students are unhappy with the web-based Eamcet engineering counselling for not implementing the reservation rule even as the second phase of counselling is scheduled to begin from Tuesday, October 5.

Complaints are pouring in from students and parents over the seat allotment list announced by Eamcet on September 25, after the first phase of counselling concluded. They said they had lost faith in the web-based counselling as it failed to allot seats based on merit or
as per reserved quotas.

They alleged that as a result of quotas not being followed, students eligible for the same had lost out on seats in some of the best colleges in the state. They cited instances where not a single seat has been allotted to Muslim students under BCE category in some of the top colleges.

Other students complained
that they were allotted seats in sub-standard colleges though their ranks rendered them eligible for seats in the best colleges. They, too, blamed faulty web-based counselling.

In the Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Technology, Gandipet, which figures in the top-10 list of colleges, not a single seat was allotted to BC-E students in the civil engineering branch in the first phase of web-based counselling. BC-E students are eligible for four per cent of the 29 per cent quota prescribed for backward classes. Of the 20 seats allotted in the counselling, 14 went to
OC candidates, one to BC-D and five to BC-B. Not a single seat was allotted to students from BC-A, BC-C, BC-E, SC and ST categories. No seats were allotted for special category students from NCC, CAP and sports categories.

Angry and disappointed at the seats they have been allotted in the first phase of counselling, several students have decided to go in for the second phase in the hopes of getting a seat in a better college. Some want the web-based counselling cancelled. Eamcet officials said they will enquire into these complaints.
