Hyderabad opposes New Engineering Colleges

Hyderabad opposes New Engineering Colleges

Hyderabad government is planning to write a letter to the All - India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) to withdraw permission given to new engineering colleges and second shift in the existing colleges.

Chief Minister K. Rosaiah may write to the AICTE, Union Minister for Human Resource Development Kapil Sibal and Union Minister of State for HRD D. Purandeshwari not to accord permission as there are enough seats available for students.

The decision to ask the Chief Minister to write the letter was apparently taken by a delegation of the State government officials who represented to the Union Ministers and AICTE officials during their visit to New Delhi on Friday.

The delegation consisting of APSCHE Chairman K.C. Reddy, Principal Secretary, Higher Education, C.R. Biswal and Technical Education Commissioner, K. Lakshminarayana met the Union Ministers and requested them not to give permission to the new engineering colleges.

The AICTE officials were reported to have asked the State government officials to get a resolution from the State Cabinet to this effect. Since this looks a remote possibility officials are said to have asked the Chief Minister to write a letter.

2.6 lakh seats

The AICTE recently released a list of colleges on its website that included 24 new colleges in the State, while another 14 existing colleges were permitted to run second shift. With the new permissions, the number of seats had gone up by 30,000 taking the total seats to more than 2.6 lakhs.

Officials say the AICTE refused to withdraw new permissions as the issue would end up in courts. As per the AICTE new guidelines permission was given online to colleges that fulfilled the norms.

"Since the norms are same for the entire country there, is no way colleges from the State can be denied permission just because there is an excess of seats," an official said.
