As per the report, the minister said that efforts were taken to fill vacant seats in top colleges including Anna University as students opt for medicine after NEET. He also informed that separate mop-up counselling will be held this year to fill the vacant seats after the medical counselling concludes.

5,970 students joined the engineering counselling under the newly introduced 7.5% special reservation for government school students, TOI reported.

“If we find any engineering college collecting the fees from students joining under 7.5%reservation, we will cancel their recognition,” Ponmudi said.
