Dear Student,

After the KCET seat allotment, it is mandatory for all the students to visit the allotted institute for admission and seat confirmation. In case any candidate fails to visit the campus for admission or to confirm their seats, then his/ her seat is canceled.

You can check KCET Seat Allotment to understand the rules & regulations.

However, you need not worry as you can contact the official authorities of KCET who may help you out with the situation. You can call them on 08023460460 or email them on to discuss your query.
