In a drastic move the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has disallowed a degree engineering college in Rajkot, fresh student intake as it did not have Non-Agricultural (NA) permission for the land on which it had established the institute. On May 14, AICTE cancelled 360 seats of the G. K. Bharad engineering college in the first year of the engineering institute. The AICTE clarified that cancellation of the seats pertain to the first year only and does not amount to cancellation of the affiliation of the college to AICTE.
The move will open a Pandora's box in the state where at least 10 institutes face a similar problem. This is for the first time that AICTE has acted against a degree engineering college for not procuring NA permission from the state revenue department. In Ahmedabad, L. J. College of engineering located off SG road also faces a similar problem. G. K. Bharad institute is established on a 12.24 acre plot, which has a school, a hostel and a canteen running. The AICTE had allowed an affiliation in 2009 to the institute. The AICTE had first issued a show cause notice on July 29 last year and issued a show cause notice in December last year. GTU vice chancellor V. K. Aggarwal told TOI, "The college has been disallowed fresh student intake for the first year. Students of the subsequent years are anyways pursuing their course in the same college."
