Hi All,
Government seems to be lazy over acting on such things.
While I was undergoing admssion process in 2007-08, I faced same problem. That time I had sent feedback emails to the respective authorities, but unfortunately no reply has ever come.
I think strong grouped protest is required for such things.

Did you try to send feedback/email using above links? If no, the first step would be sending email and sending feedback as well.

I also stumbled upon http://dte.org.in/rdte/index.asp
