The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has banned an engineering college in the state from admitting students this academic year. The council issued a No Admission notice to Odayappa Engineering College, just ahead of the admission process. The general academic counselling for admission to engineering colleges in the state begins on Friday, 13th July, 2012. As many as 1,69,473 candidates will choose their engineering colleges and courses through the month-long online process, which ends on 13th August.
The AICTE issued show cause notices to 71 technical institutions in June over poor infrastructure or lack of faculty members and threatened to withdraw approval of more than one college for not meeting the councils norms. We are still examining a few other colleges and will soon decide whether or not we should issue No Admission notices to them as well, a senior AICTE official said. Odayappa College has filed a case against the order in court, sources said. Officials in charge of the Tamil Nadu engineering admissions process on Thursday said only 499 of the 504 existing engineering colleges were given the go-ahead to take part in the admission process. The AICTE approved 13 new engineering colleges this year. Academicians said more existing engineering colleges should be closed because they do not meet the quality standards set by the council. The information has come a little late. What if the college had already started admitting students under the management quota but at least it was announced before the government quota seats were filled, said a senior academician. The AICTE had last year withdrawn approval to four engineering colleges in the state. It struck off Dr. G.U. Pope College of Engineering, Jayaraj Annapackiam CSI College of Engineering, Padmavathi College of Engineering and VKK Vijayan Engineering College its list of eligible colleges. Many engineering colleges get conditional approval from the council when they start with the promise that they will fulfill the norms as early as possible, but most go back on their word, said a senior professor in the directorate of technical education. They continue to run the institutions without the infrastructure and faculty necessary, cheating students and the affiliating body. They ought to be banned, he said.
