The counselling for undergraduate engineering courses in Karnataka began at seven centres across Karnataka at 9 am from yesterday i.e. 7th July, 2011. On the first day of counselling, students with ranks 1 to 1,600 were able to select the seats. The seat selection process will be spread over four sessions – two before noon and two in the afternoon. The counselling will continue till 11 July 2011.
Apart from Bangalore, counselling will be held in Belgaum, Chitradurga, Hubli, Gulbarga, Mangalore and Shimoga. The students were asked to bring 2 demand drafts – one for Rs 33,090 and the other for Rs 38,090 – which they will submit depending on the college they select. The DDs should be in favour of “The Executive Director, Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA)” payable at the respective centres.
