AICTE denounced of fumbling Engineering Admissions

AICTE denounced of fumbling Engineering Admissions

The intake in no less than four engineering colleges in the State, in branches where 50 seats have been allotted during the ongoing CET counselling round, has been slashed.

This is due to the All India Council of Technical Education's regulation that states that colleges cannot exceed the maximum student intake limit of 840 (for colleges older than 10 years) and 540 for new colleges, State Higher Education Minister Arvind Limbavali has said.

While seats have been withdrawn from the seat matrix after the announcement, 35 students who have selected Civil Engineering seats in PES Institute of Technology and 15 students in Mechanical Engineering in CMRIT are directly affected by this move.

The total number of seats is likely to come down by 450 as a result of this move, according to officials.

Mr. Limbavali told on Tuesday that the Government would write to the AICTE stating that these 50 students be spared of any inconvenience. "We do not want the students to suffer," he said.

He accused the AICTE of bungling the admissions and causing inconvenience to the students in the State. Meanwhile, Kammavari Sangham Group of Institutions (Mallasandra) and Bangalore Technological Institute (Sarajapur Road) in Bangalore were added to the seat matrix on Tuesday.

The engineering admissions have been a confusing affair, what with the first round being delayed by over three weeks due to delay in granting of approvals to engineering colleges. The KEA claims that in the seat matrix it received from the AICTE, the extra seats had been mentioned.

"We will try our best that these seats be retained, at least for the 50 students who have already taken admissions," KEA officials said.

Single CET

The Minister also brought up the issue of a single CET, one which has been a pet subject of the Government. Earlier this year, the Government's attempts to do away with a separate entrance for entry to private colleges, conducted by the ComedK, had failed after private college managements opposed the idea.

"As soon as the CET is over this year we will try our best to convince the college managements. After all, it is in the interests of the students and will reduce the burden on professional college aspirants," he said. The Government will also come up with the new CET Act by the end of this year.

The two committees that have been formed, one for fee fixation and the other for grievance redressal, are working to evolve a better system, he said.
