Tamil Nadu Engineering counseling in Tamil Nadu is set to commence on 22nd July, as announced by Minister Ponmudi. This year, similar to the previous one, the counseling process will be conducted online, ensuring convenience and accessibility for students. The Directorate of Engineering Consultancy Education received a substantial number of applications, with a total of 1,878,470 students applying for engineering counseling for the academic year 2023-24. Among the applicants, a rank list has been published, consisting of 178,959 eligible students who are eligible to participate in the counseling process.

Minister Ponmudi made the announcement regarding the Tamil Nadu engineering consultation schedule at the Directorate of Technical Education in Guindy, Chennai. The schedule includes specific details about the phases and timelines of the counseling process.

The engineering consultation will be divided into several phases, allowing for a streamlined and efficient process. According to the released schedule, the consultation for special sections will be held from 22nd July to 26th July, providing an opportunity for students applying through special quotas to secure admissions. Following this, the general consultation phase will take place from 28th July to 3rd September, providing a broader platform for students from various categories to participate.

Notably, this year's public consultation will be conducted in only three phases, aiming to expedite the process while maintaining its effectiveness. Additionally, there will be a supplementary consultation phase from 6th September to 9th September, catering to students requiring further assistance or counseling due to specific circumstances. Furthermore, the consultation for Arundhatiyar and Adhidravidis students will be held from 10th September to 11th September, ensuring equal opportunities for all deserving candidates.

Minister Ponmudi emphasized that the entire counseling process would be concluded by 11th September, offering clarity and certainty to the participating students. In his statements during a press conference, he reassured that engineering counseling in Tamil Nadu would ensure that students are provided with admissions opportunities across the state. Moreover, he emphasized that measures would be taken to fill vacant engineering seats if students choose to switch to other courses.

Regarding students who opt to discontinue their engineering course and transfer to another college, Minister Ponmudi advised that they should return the scholarship funds received in full. This recommendation aims to maintain fairness and accountability within the education system.

Traditionally, public consultation is conducted in four stages; however, this year, all engineering consultation activities are scheduled to be completed by 15th September. Hence, the public consultation will be conducted in three phases only, ensuring timely completion of the process. It is noteworthy that a total of 11,804 seats will be filled under the 7.5 percent quota reserved for government school-educated students.

Minister Ponmudi's announcement regarding the initiation of engineering counseling on 22nd July brings hope and excitement to aspiring students in Tamil Nadu. The online consultation process and the defined schedule for different phases reflect the government's commitment to providing equal opportunities and a smooth admission process for students pursuing engineering education in the state.
