Bombay High Court has interim stayed the, de-recognition of two Pune engineering colleges considering that large number of students are admitted there. Recording an undertaking that qualified professors will be appointed within two months; the court has allowed the colleges to admit students for the current academic year. A division bench of Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice Nitin Jamdar On 11th July, 2012, heard a petition by Pune's Navsahyadri Education Society challenging the 21st June, decision of All India Council for Technical Education withdrawing recognition on the basis deficiencies noticed by an expert committee.
Since 2010 the Society has been running two engineering colleges offering degree and diploma courses. It contended that since approval was granted for 2012-13 and is not cancelled or withdrawn, the Director of Technical Education is unjustified in not displaying its colleges' names on the government website for admission which have begun. AICTE advocate said while approval granted for 2011-12 has been withdrawn, by necessary implication, the extension of approval for 2012-13 would not survive. Also that due to the deficit of two professors and five associate professors and inadequate number of assistant professors with the requisite qualification of M.E / M.Tech, no interim relief should be granted to the Society. The judges said in ordinary course it would not direct AICTE to permit the petition to run the institution which does not have the requisite number of professors /associate professors with full qualifications. But when AICTE at its 26th February, 2012 meeting granted approval for the first time, it was aware that the qualified teachers M.E/M.Tech were not available for appointment to the posts of lecturer which are now re-designated as assistant professors and had granted three years time to appoint them. Society's advocate informed that teachers with qualification of M.E / M.Tech with Ph.D. in engineering are not easily available in spite of issuing an advertisement. The judges said in view of this factual" background, the grievances raised by the institution are required to be considered. Furthermore, the grant of approval for academic year 2012-13 and withdrawal of the approval for academic year 2011-12 has created an anomalous situation for the petitioner," the judges noted. They record the Society's advocate submission that deficiencies in respect of infrastructure have been removed. Interimly staying AICTE's decision, the judges directed DTE to display names of the two colleges on its website and also directed the Society to appoint two professors and five associate professors with the qualification of M.E / M.Tech with Ph.D. in engineering within two months.
