Students opting for courses in Ayurveda and Unani systems of medicine in Karnataka are beset with what has become an annual anxiety ritual as they are still awaiting a seat matrix from the Karnataka Ayurveda, Yoga Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) department.

Officials from the Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) say that unless a confirmation is given to them, they cannot take any steps in this matter.

Last year also saw the same situation, but all 4,000 seats available for alternative medicalcourses were taken up by the students. "A separate counselling session had to be arranged to allot seats in the Ayurveda, Unani and other Indian systems of medicine last year," said an official. "Seat aspirants need to understand that some problems find no resolution within the KEA; that we are doing all we can."

The problem is that there is no approved list from the center for colleges in the state.
