Students and parents are irked by the inordinate delay in the commencement of Eamcet counselling for admission to engineering and medical courses for the new academic year (2013-14), even 20 days after the results were announced on June 5.

The IITs have already commenced counselling on June 24, within three days of the announcement of JEE results on June 21. The state government is also coming under fire from the Opposition parties for its failure to announce when the Eamcet counselling would begin.

The TD and CPI want the government to begin EAMCET counselling immediately to check migration of students to other states. Some parents have already started looking at other states to secure admissions for their wards.

The cause of delay of EAMCET Web Counselling 2013 is that AP Government is waiting to finalise Engineering Admission seats fees structure.

Andhra Pradesh high court orders Admission and Fee Regulatory Committee, state council of higher education chief secretary and EAMCET convener to present the court with complete details of when engineering counseling notification will be issued and when the course fee in various colleges will be notified. The court made it clear that they should inform to the court about counseling notification issue and completion of fee notification procedure by 28th July. Court also said that lack of co-ordination between AFRC and higher education department is clearly visible and this is not good for the students. Court gave these orders when they took up the petitions filed by some students.

Engineering counseling 2013 schedule was supposed to have released been issued by now. EAMCET 2013 ranks are also announced but AFRC did not take a decision on the fee in various professional colleges including engineering colleges. As per AICTE rules the first phase of counseling was to be completed by 30th June. But the notification is still not issued. Earlier, all the private engineering colleges used to have common fee structure. Later High Court ordered AFRC to decide fee in engineering colleges based on qualification of teaching staff, basic infrastructure in college and the salaries of staff.

High Court already gave orders that announcement should be made about engineering college fee every year in the month of March but this is not being followed.

Meanwhile, state government of Andhra Pradesh file counter affidavit in High Court requesting the court to cancel the stay on GO related to filling on engineering management quota seats online. Government said that if the stay is not lifted, EAMCET counseling procedure will be delayed which is a loss for the students. High Court gave interim stay on GO 66 and asked the government to file a counter affidavit. In the counter, it was brought to the notice of the High Court that GO 66 was issued for filling of management quota seats online as per the judgment of High Court in 2007.
