Agriculture Admission process begins at TNAU
The admission process for filling up 3,422 seats in 12 agriculture courses in Tamil Nadu Agricultural University’s colleges and its affiliated institutions would begin on May 18 with the issue of applications.
The applications could be submitted only online for a month starting May 18 at the University website, www.tnau.ac.in/admission.html, Vice Chancellor K. Ramasamy said in Coimbatore at a press meet on Monday.
The last date for submitting the application is June 17. The University would thereafter verify applications for special reservation category till June 20 and publish the rank list on June 22. It would hold the first counselling for candidates under the sports, ex-servicemen and descendants of freedom fighters and differently abled quotas on July 7 followed by counselling under the open category from July 9 to 13.
The University would then hold the counselling for vocational stream students on July 16, counselling for NRI and industry-sponsored quota on July 17 and 18 and the second phase of counselling from July 23 to 27.
The University would hold the registration for first semester on August 1 and complete the admission process on August 31, Mr. Ramasamy said.
For admission under management quota even in affiliated (private) colleges, the University would allow only those candidates who had registered online.
This year the University had upgraded the departments offering four courses — sericulture, bio-technology and agri-business – into colleges and changed the nomenclature of two courses — B.Tech. Food Processing to four year B.Sc. (Hon.) Food Processing and B.Tech. Horticulture to B.Sc. (Hon.) Horticulture.
Mr. Ramasamy said that this year the counselling too would be online. Right at the application stage the candidates could indicate their choice of courses in order of priority with the course they sought after being first on the list. Based on their choice and the marks obtained in the Plus Two examination, the University would allot seat.
If the candidates’ first choice of course was not available at the end of the first counselling, the University would allot their second or third or other choice as per the priority, as per the seats available.
The University would admit those candidates who were under the all-India quota in the 15% seats reserved in its constituent colleges. They would not be admitted in affiliated colleges, as there was no all-India quota in those institutions.
The University, he said, had established a help desk with 0422-6611345 and 6611346 as phone number for offering clarifications. The desk would function between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on working days. Alternatively, candidates could also e-mail their doubts to email@example.com.
