Telangana Engineering Agriculture Medical Common Entrance Test (EAMCET) results were out today with 74% in Engineering and 86% students in medical streams qualified.

Boys continued their good run in Engineering bagging most of the top ranks while girls scored well in medical stream.

Interestingly, boys who hailed from Andhra Pradesh region have performed well by bagging six out of the top ten ranks including the first two. Jayant Harsha of Guntur scored 156 out of 160 to become the top ranker while Ram Prasad of Srikakulam who also scored similar marks stood at number two. While the third rank goes to Telangana’s Bharadwaj (155), the fourth one again goes to AP i.e. Shailendra of East Godavari with 155 marks.

Even in agriculture and Pharmacy, five out of ten students were from AP.

It might be recalled that with 153.96 marks out of 160, Telangana student V. Mohan Abhyas stood first in the engineering stream of AP Eamcet 2017. Telangana students bagged three more top ranks in APEAMCET.

Even in JEE Mains and other national level exams, students from both the states have been scoring exceptionally well and sharing top honours. “Bifurcation of the state has no impact on the brilliant students but some bright students will stand to lose due to local-non local issue. They may not get admission in the top ten engineering colleges that too in core branches like CSE” a senior functionary of TS EAMCET said.

Hyderabad continues to enjoy the upper-hand of having the best engineering colleges with good faculty and other infrastructure. Their placement records are also quite good. In that sense, rankers of Telangana will gain more compared to their counterparts of AP.

Heart-Rending Scenes at EAMCET Centers

  • Entry Barred to Students Who Arrived Late By A Minute

HYDERABAD: A girl student who raced to the exam center at MNR College in Kukatpally was late by one minute and was not allowed. She along with her parents pleaded the officials to allow her or else she would waste her yearlong preparations. But the officials remained adamant and refused the girl to enter. The parents even picked up an argument but of no avail.

Such pathetic and heart-rending scenes were witnessed at many centers where the EAMCET exams of the Telangana State were held on Thursday as officials barred students coming late by even a minute.

Over 2.31 lakh students are expected to take the exams conducted by JNTU in as many as 423 centers across the state. In Hyderabad alone, 1.31 lakh students are expected to take the exams in 111 centers.

While 1,39,636 students are expected to take the exams for the engineering stream all over the state in the morning, 92,362 candidates applied for appearing for Medical and Agriculture streams in the afternoon.

The parents and students were very apprehensive in the wake of the strike by the RTC employees, but heaved a sigh of relief when the strike was called off following a settlement reached between the management and the crew in the evening.

The RTC authorities also announced that as many as 600 special buses would be operated to ferry the students to the exam centers.

Though the authorities had advised the students to reach the exam centers half-an-hour in advance and warned that no student would be allowed even if arrived late by one minute, many students literally missed the buses in reaching the exam centers in time due to many unforeseen reasons.

The chaotic traffic snarls due to metro-rail works, lack of road sense and erratic driving by the incorrigible auto drivers, etc., prevented many students to reach the exam centers in time. There was delay also in the flow of traffic at the railway level crossings due to closure of gates.

Consequently, many students, including girls along with their parents, were seen literally panting and sprinting to reach the centers. However, due to reasons and situations beyond their control, many students arrived late by few seconds even as the gates to centers were being closed. The officials manning the centers, especially the security guards posted the gates, did not permit the students to enter.

Many students, both boys and girls, were found literally in tears and pleaded the officials to permit them to enter. Parents who have pinned their hopes on their wards to take up professional courses were shocked and heartbroken on finding their children’s entry being barred for arriving a few seconds late. Some parents also wept along with their children for denying entrance into the exam centers. (NSS)

RTC crew’s 43 percent fitment demand is unjust

HYDERABAD: Stating that the State-run RTC was accumulating one-crore rupees loss everyday, Telangana Transport Minister Mahendar Reddy said that under these circumstances, the employees’ demanding for 43 percent fitment was totally unreasonable.

Speaking to media on Thursday, Reddy made it clear that the state government was not inclined to put burden on the commuters by raising the salaries of the crew.

He said the government has constituted a cabinet sub-committee with Home Minister NayaniNarsimha Reddy and Finance Minister EtelaRajendar to find a satisfactory solution to both parties.

He also said arrangements were being made to provide transport facility to 120 villages shortly.

Special buses for EAMCET students: RTC

Meanwhile, RTC Managing Director SambasivaRao has said special transport arrangements would be made for the students appearing for the EAMCET.

Rao dealt on RTC’s recurring losses, employees’ demand for 43% fitment and several other issues during an interview with a vernacular daily on Thursday. On the plying of buses, Rao said they ran 12 percent buses on the first day of the strike, 37% by noon today and hoped to ply 45% buses by this evening. He also urged all Engineering colleges to ply buses free of cost in view of the agitation by the RTC crew.

Rao also advised the EAMCET students to make themselves available near the examination centers a day before as they would run possible number of buses from every bus depot. Adverting to the charter of demands of the agitating employees, he said they have already implemented two of the three demands mentioned in the strike notice.

Pointing out that Road Transport Corporation and the State government were totally different, he expressed hope that the state government might extend some assistance if the Corporation asked for it. Making it clear that the Corporation was not against raising salaries to its employees, Rao said if the Corporation gets handsome revenue it will raise their salaries to their satisfaction. (NSS)
