Loopholes in current system & proposed National-level NATA 2019 Counselling
In a recent press conference, Council of Architecture, COA has stated that there are some loopholes in the current decentralized counselling process.
Below are few of the important loopholes which the NATA Counselling system is facing currently;
- In the current system, one has to apply separately to each institute, it is time-consuming.
- It also involves a lot of logistics and eventually turns out to be costly for candidates.
- Due to the unorganized counselling process, a lot of seats goes vacant in college. So many deserving candidates miss out on a seat which eventually goes waste.
To counter these loopholes, COA is planning to conduct a national-level Counselling for NATA qualified candidates. In this modified system, candidates will be able to apply to all the participating institutes through one common portal.
Most importantly, the seats which go waste due to unorganized counselling can be better utilized.
Though the final decision on Centralised NATA counselling has not been taken yet, it is understood that current problems faced by candidates will force the conducting body to change and make the system a better and fluid one.
