The Joint Entrance Examination committee has indefinitely postponed the counseling date. In a release, chairman of the committee Prof Deba Prasad Tripathi said that the decision to this effect has been taken following the reduction in the seat of the VSS Medical College and Hospital in Burla.
As the committee has not yet received about the exact number of seats in other colleges, there would be problems if the counseling at this point of time would be done, he added. Therefore, the counseling would be done only after the state government furnished a detailed report to this effect.
This apart, the counseling would be taken up after the counseling for the IIT and other leading institutions are completed, Tripathy pointed out.
