The list includes government as well as non government institutions which will give admission based on KCET. By going through the list you can perhaps make out as to which is government college and which is not and then take action accordingly. https://www.shiksha.com/engineering/ranking/top-engineering-colleges-in-Karnataka-accepting-kcet/44-2-106-0-6611
But I suggest that you should appear for the entrance exam conducted exclusively by non added private colleges for admissions in the state of Karnataka as this will broaden your spectrum of colleges in which you can take admission. Best wishes to you.
