A day after deferring the release of rank list for engineering aspirants, the Department of Technical Education (DoTE) on Monday released a new schedule after postponing the counselling dates. The counselling would be conducted at Central Polytechnic Chennai instead of DoTE campus.
Similarly, counselling for vocational group would be held from June 26 to 28 at the Central Polytechnic. “After releasing the rank list, SMS regarding their counselling date and time will be send to all students who applied online,” the minister added.
According to sources in the department, the certificate verification process was getting delayed due to lack of staff. Till last year, Anna University was handling the counselling. However, this year, DoTE took over counselling after Anna University refused to do it following a tug-of-war with the Higher Education Department over an amendment in counselling committee.
