Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) has written to higher authorities for students to get permission to change their caste, category and income in their CET applications. Earlier, did not accepted such requests once the applications are submitted but this year the Authority accepts the requests of the students.
The reason behind not accepting changes was once the application was submitted due to complaints of alleged malpractice. But, this year, as the department receives 1000 application for changes, it plans to change the norms.
Another reason to this is some students turned up for Document Verification after the last date because the date mentioned in the brochure was different to the actual last date. Many students were not aware that the last day was June 17th. On this basis, KEA allowed the verification of documents of these students.

- A total of 216 seats from two engineering colleges – Cauvery Institute of Technology and Jain Acharya Institute – were added. Apart from this, 661 surrendered management seats from private colleges were also added.
