Chennai: To prevent wastage of places in top colleges including Anna University, the Department of Higher Education has introduced a new rule requiring engineering applicants to pay the fees within seven days of application. allocation of places in the online engineering consultancy.
“If students fail to pay the fee, their stipend would be forfeited and those who opted for an upward move during the same round will be given preference. The remaining vacant seats will be added in subsequent rounds,” said Higher Education Minister K Ponmudi.
Last year, aspirants were given up to two weeks to pay fees and join the colleges. There was, however, no mechanism to fill vacancies if students did not join the colleges.
In the past two years alone, 1,126 students who took part in Anna University’s four campuses failed to enroll, while 326 students dropped out after medical advice, wasting 1,451 places offered at subsidized cost in the best institutes.

“Each cycle will now take 14 days, including seven days to pay tuition and join the college,” said an official from the higher education department.
Students who obtained ranks from 1 to 15,000 will be called for the first round and 15,001 to 30,000 will be called for the second round. Those between 30,001 and 50,000 ranks will be called for the third round and above 50,000 ranks will be called for the fourth round.
“Out of 600 vacancies at Anna University campuses last year, 419 students did not join the college after selecting the engineering consultancy places. The new rule could reduce vacancies across the university’s four campuses to just 100, which can be filled through side entry boards,” Anna University Vice Chancellor R Velraj told TOI. .
