Web Counselling Passwords on Mobiles
Students appearing for web counselling for admission into engineering courses this year will get the passwords directly in their mobile phones instead of generating it from the computer.
Till last year, students were themselves generating the password after feeding all the details in the computer. The password is vital in logging into the web counselling system and giving options on the colleges and courses.
Since most rural students were depending on the officials at the helpline centre to generate the password the secrecy of it was under question.
“A lot of students complained of passwords being changed at the helpline centres without their knowledge. So the camp office in Hyderabad will now generate the passwords and send it to the students’ mobiles through text message,” said Raghunath, Camp Officer.
If they forget the password, students have to approach any of the 56 helpline centres and give an undertaking with the identity proof, which will be sent to the camp office in Hyderabad.
A new password will be generated and passed onto the student through the mobile again.
Students should not reveal the password to anyone at any cost, Mr. Raghunath said, to avoid mischief. Last year, three cases were reported in Rayalaseema region where some personnel at the helpline centres used the password to give priority to their “favourite” colleges instead of students’ choice.
In fact, two of them were confirmed right while the officials did not find any proof for the third complaint.
But there are several instances that are not even reported, particularly from small towns, where students are yet to understand the web counselling totally.
They depend on officials at the helpline centres or some internet centres for choosing the college and course combination. Some colleges allegedly colluded with the officials and internet centres to ensure that their colleges were given first preference.
A senior professor in an engineering college in Khammam agreed that a lot of students faced this problem but they found the mischief too late.
