The Tamil Nadu Engineering Admission counselling will be held as usual and will not be affected by the Lok Sabha election, said Anna University Vice Chancellor, M Rajaram.

Some engineering aspirants  are anxious that TNEA admission will be delayed or advanced due to the Lok Sabha general election for which polling will be held on April 24 and counting on May 16. 

“The TNEA is a routine exercise and it will not be affected by the LS election dates. We have already decided about the dates for opening the sale of application, ranking and counselling dates,” Rajaram said.

According to university sources, the sale of application could start from first week of May and will continue for about 15 days. The first phase of counselling will start from last week of June. The entire counselling process will be completed before July 31. The Anna University plans to print 2.5 lakh application forms for this year’s TNEA admission.

Around 2 lakh seats of 572 engineering and architecture colleges in the State are expected to be filled through TNEA single window counselling, which will be held at Anna University.

“We are yet to receive any guidelines from UGC or All India Council for Technical Education about the approval of new engineering college. We are hoping to receive  some guidelines in this record in next couple days,” he said.
