HYDERABAD: After engineering education in Telangana lost its sheen, a huge number of seats in polytechnic colleges are also lying vacant in the state for the past few years. This year, more than 18,300 seats in government and private polytechnic colleges across the state remained vacant.

Against the total 52,172 available seats in 220 colleges, only 33,865 seats were allotted to  qualified students. While the government colleges managed to attract students, but most private colleges failed to fill their seats. After the final phase of web counselling on Wednesday, nearly 17,000 seats remained vacant in private colleges alone. While the government colleges had only 762 vacant seats.

Students can report at their respective colleges from July 23 to July 25. Classes will begin in all polytechnic colleges from July 27 onwards, according to Department of Technical Education, Telangana.
