Students whose name is missing from the Tamil Nadu Engineering Admission (TNEA) rank list can lodge their grievance with Directorate of Technical Education (DOTE) till September 18.
So far, at least 84 engineering aspirants have complained about their names missing from the rank list. Higher Education Minister K Ponmudi, who visited DOTE on Thursday, said all complaints will be investigated. "If found genuine, their problems will be resolved by awarding them ranks on basis of marks," said Ponmudi.
To ensure that students don't face problems, DOTE has set up 51 help desks across the state and released phone numbers where students can air their grievances. Ponmudi further clarified that students who have studied from Class VI to Class XII in government schools are only eligible to avail the reservation under 7.5 per cent government school quota, which was introduced this year.
At least 15,660 students from government schools are eligible to participate in the counselling. He said Chief Minister MK Stalin has formed a special committee to ensure that the newly introduced 7.5 per cent quota in professional courses is implemented properly.
