Amid concerns of scarcity of seats due to a higher number of passouts this year, state education minister Ranoj Pegu said in the government and provincialized colleges of Assam, there are about 1.7 lakh seats. “There are many private and venture colleges where students are enrolled in various professional courses. A section of students get admission in medical, engineering and polytechnic courses. We are discussing where to increase seats,” said Pegu, assuring that all successful students would be accommodated for higher studies. He, however, admitted that the government is yet to ascertain the total number of seats in private and venture colleges.
