HC hearing on engg. Colleges petition today

The Hyderabad High Court declared that, it would pronounce the orders in the cases filed by the engineering colleges today.

In the past the managements of the various private engineering colleges have filed a petition against the decision of JNTUH, in rejecting grant of affiliation to them and thus reducing the number of admissions sanctioned by All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for the academic year 2015-16.

On the other side, Telangana advocate general, K Ramakrishna Reddy said that, the colleges have failed to fulfill the norms prescribed by the AICTE and that is the reason for it to reject granting the affiliation to the concerned engineering colleges.

When the inspections were conducted by the authorities, it was found that the concerned colleges did not maintain the student, faculty ration as per the guidelines issued by the AICTE. Along with these, there are no proper facilities in the laboratories. In the previous years, though these colleges are suggested to improve the facilities, they failed to do so, AG reminded.  

“The university is very concerned about providing the quality education to the students,” he added.  
On the other side, the managements who filed the petitions complained that the university has failed to look into the facts in the correct perspective. Though steps have been taken to create required facilities, as the counseling is declared to start from July 8, we are forced to postpone the repairing works

However, the reaction of the court on the issue is yet to be heard, which is going to be out today evening.
