AICTE blame for poor pass %
279 views

As many as 16 engineering colleges in Western Tamil Nadu have a pass percentage of 35% or lower. In fact, in one Salem-based college the pass percentage was below 10%. Academicians blame the sorry state of affairs on the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), the top most statutory body for technical education in the country. They say that even though the quality of the engineering colleges is suspect, the AICTE keeps approving them. "It is really a pitiful situation. Students are the ones who stand to lose the most. For everybody else, it's a win-win situation. The AICTE doesn't care for the quality of the colleges. Money is exchanged and education in the country has become a commercial affair," said a senior academician.

 AICTE blame for poor pass %

"We have been asking the AICTE to stop approving new colleges. Many colleges are little more than sheds. They should take a look at the infrastructure and faculty before approving new institutions. Now the academic results are there for everyone to see," he said. He also pointed out that 40,000 to 50,000 seats will go vacant after the counselling that is going on in Chennai. Reports show that 40% of candidates did not show up for single window counselling. "Most of these students would have gone for the management quota seats in private colleges after paying exorbitant amounts," said former vice-chancellor of Anna University and Planning Commission member E Balaguruswamy. In Tamil Nadu, 140 institutions were served show-cause notices last year and four were debarred from admitting students. As many as 71 colleges have been issued show cause notices. The AICTE has clarified that this is not a punitive but a corrective measure asking the colleges to shape up.
