Later addressing presspersons at Sahyadri Engineering College, the Minister alleged that the AICTE was changing the intake every two days.
"The AICTE should understand that it is not a child's play," he said.
The Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA), which conducted counselling at five centres in the State, would consider the number of seats sanctioned by the AICTE to engineering colleges till 18th June, 2010 for allotting students appeared for the CET.
In some cases, the AICTE had allotted "zero" seats to some colleges this year owing to confusion.
In such cases, the KEA would consider the total number of seats allotted to such colleges last year for distributing seats to CET students this year.
If the AICTE reduced the number of seats for some colleges this year, the KEA would stick to it while allotting seats, he said.
The Minister said that managements of aided degree colleges would be allowed to remit only 50 per cent of the total tuition fee collected from students to the Government.
The managements could retain the balance fee amount with them. Presently, the managements were remitting the entire tuition fee collected from students to the Government.
