Earlier on August 4, the Orissa High Court had directed the OJEE authorities to conduct a second OJEE after hearing a petition filed by Odisha Private Engineering Colleges Association (OPECA) to fill up vacant seats in B-Tech stream in the ‘reserved category.’

The Court had directed the State Government to complete the entire admission process by August 14 while making it clear that both general and reserve category students can appear for the special OJEE for MBA and MCA. The general category students on merit can be allowed to take admissions if there is still vacancy under the reserved category.
