Education minister of Kerala P.K Abdu Rabb told the assembly on Monday, 16th July, 2012 that 23 engineering colleges, found wanting in academic quality and infrastructure, have been given a year's time to improve the facilities. Their academic standard and quality of education will be evaluated a year later. “The government will initiate necessary action if the improvement is not satisfactory,” he said while replying to questions raised by P.C George, M.V Sreyams Kumar, N Jayaraj and Roshy Augustine on the deteriorating standards of private engineering colleges.
"Since we cannot resort to extreme steps like closing them down immediately, reasonable time to implement recommendations of the expert committee is being given to these institutes," he said. The committee was constituted following a directive by the Kerala high court on 22nd September, 2011 to recommend quality parameters for private colleges. "We have stopped allotting new B.Tech courses in those colleges where the pass percentage is less than 40 percent," the minister said.
The minister further said that the government has constituted industry interaction cell in all the engineering colleges with a view to promoting interaction with the industry. The minister said the proposed technical university would help in bringing more effective control mechanisms over private engineering colleges and ensure better academic standards. Government has also mooted technology research parks in all engineering colleges, he said.
