Over 2 lakh seats are expected to go vacant for this academic session admission process in Andhra Pradesh Engineering Colleges. For the academic session 2013-2014 in Andhra Pradesh across 3 regions, as high as 2 lakh seats may vacant.
The EAMCET 2013 Counselling was postponed for over 2 months and faced various issues with execution once it started because of ongoing tension in the State of Andhra Pradesh. The EAMCET Certificate Verification process 2013 is over and the EAMCET Web Counselling 2013 will also get over this week.

The High Court of Andhra Pradesh ordered the State to start EAMCET Counselling as soon as possible but Document Verification Process for EAMCET 2013 Counselling faced a lot of troubles. Strike Stricken Seemandhra Students were the most affected. Currently the web option entry process is going on for EAMCET 2013 Counselling.
Telangana region is expected to be the worst hit region because of the deficit of students. The region is already facing tensions because of the political situations existing in the region and the state and this blow in Engineering admissions is not going to ease up the situation.

For this region, 61000 students have attended the counselling this year for admission to 313 engineering colleges affiliated to JNTU-Hyderabad. Total Number of seats are around 1.65 lakhs. Nine colleges from this region have already closed down post approvals from AICTE (All India Council of Technical Education).
Now in the Andhra Region which falls under JNTU-K university, it has 201 colleges listed under it. Approximately 1.01 lakh seats in engineering streams are there for this region and the affiliating university.
Whereas The Rayalaseema region falls under JNTU-Anantpur and 118 engineering colleges are listed under the university. A total of around 60,000 seats is there in this region.

If we compare the ongoing situation with the previous year EAMCET Counselling figures, not all students who attend the document verification process take final admission as expected. Now, last year more than 10% students who attended the EAMCET 2013 Counselling Document Verification Process didn’t take final admission.
The same percentage can be expected this year too for academic session 2013-2014.
Considering all 3 regions together, there would be many colleges who have got none or very less number of students admitted. And with the ongoing situation, some colleges are expected to be shut down this year itself.
An official said that Some colleges were very few students have taken admission through counselling are expected to shift/transfer their students to some other college for the classroom proceedings. In the mean time, these colleges will be shut down to avoid the investment in teaching and non teaching categories.
Now, again for such colleges, Telangana region is worst hit. Around 40 colleges are expected to remain shut in this region.
Where as in Andhra Region the number is expected to be around 20 and similarly in Rayalaseema region around 10 colleges are expected to remain shut.
In last academic session admission, 10 colleges saw zero admission figures and this number can increase for the this academic session admission procedure.
We have highlighted it lot of times earlier that this delay has caused serious loss to the State of Andhra Pradesh and lead to the migration of students to the neighboring states like Karnataka, Kerela, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and New Delhi . Andhra Pradesh was once considered to be education hub and a hot destination for engineering aspirants but the recent issues have surely decreased that reputation.

If this trend continues, Andhra Pradesh engineering colleges would face serious concerns as even more number of seats may go vacant! This decrease in admission rate must be tackled effectively so that for the coming year, the best possible steps should be taken and proper & timely execution of processes should be done.
