The Department of Higher Education has convened a meeting with management representatives of private professional colleges on Tuesday to iron out issues on the 2014 Common Entrance Test (CET).

Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) officials said two meetings have been called — one, in the morning, with KEA officials and another, in the afternoon, with management representatives. The main issues which will be discussed during the meeting with managements are fee and seat-sharing                    structure. The High Court has directed authorities to settle differences with private colleges within four weeks.

Though Higher Education Minister R V Deshpande had announced that fee and seat-sharing structure will be the same as last year, private colleges have differed. M K Panduranga Shetty, secretary of Karnataka Unaided Private Engineering Colleges’ Association (KUPECA), said, “We are firm on our decision. We will ask the government to follow the High Court direction. But there is no question of signing a consensual agreement.”
