The seat selection procedure in respect of minority candidates in COMED UGET will be as follows:-
During the common first round of counseling explained as at Point:18 (i) to (v) the seats reserved for Minority category in Minority institutions would also be available to the candidates coming under this category, whether Christian or Tulu or Telugu or Konkani for selection in the order of merit.
Those candidates of this category by birth/domicile in Karnataka are first eligible to select the seats so reserved. All other Minority candidates are permitted to choose seats under General Merit category only according to their merit ranks.
However, there will be an exclusive round of counseling i.e. the first session of the second and final round of counseling for candidates belonging to minority category only if the seats reserved for them are available.
In this round, again Minority candidates by birth / domicile in Karnataka have preference in selecting the seats meant for Minority category and thereafter the leftover seats under the Christian Minority category can be selected by such Christian Minority candidates hailing from States other than Karnataka. This opportunity is not available to Tulu /Telugu / Konkani Minority candidates belonging to outside Karnataka.
If the seats are still left unfilled under minority quota they will be moved to General Merit category and the General Merit candidates would be counselled in the order of merit during the second and final round.
The candidate who has taken a minority seat during the first round of counseling is eligible to participate only in the minority session of the Second and Final round. Candidates who have selected minority seats will not be eligible to participate in the subsequent General Merit sessions of this round.
