HYDERABAD: To come to the rescue of engineering aspirants in both Telangana and AP states, the AP State Council of Higher Education has decided to file a review petition in the Supreme Court on Friday, seeking permission for carrying out second phase of engineering counselling.

The apex court had earlier declined permission to APSCHE to conduct the second round of counselling. This move has left aspirants no option to change their options exercised during the first phase of engineering counselling. Besides, it had also dashed the hopes of aspirants who could not secure a seat in the first counselling.

The situation of 174 disaffiliated engineering colleges in Telangana was no different as they had expected that the second round would change their fortunes and they would be part of the admission process.

In this context, the review petition of the APSCHE is a glimmer of hope for both aspirants and engineering colleges.

Confirming this, APSCHE chairman L Venugopal Reddy said, “We will urge the Supreme Court to grant permission for conducting second phase of counselling.”
