Though the state government is all set to sanction nearly 125 new senior colleges across the state, the question being asked is if they have that much demand. Last year, nearly 1 lakh seats across the state had no takers.
The higher and technical education department has received 295 applications for new senior colleges. The state government has completed its scrutiny and is waiting for the Supreme Court nod to go ahead. Nearly 125 applicants are expected to get the approval. However, officials and experts in the field firmly believe that the approval was to woo political leaderships which are in control of most of the institutions applying for new colleges. "Most of the seats in the colleges go unfilled as the rural areas witness more supply than the demand. It's an open secret that the sanction is always politically motivated," said a sitting MLC. The approval for new colleges is delayed due to legal battle. The high court recently maintained that there was no need of state government sanction for new colleges and that university affiliation was sufficient to start a new college. The higher and technical education department was all set to issue a list of new colleges before the deadline of June 15, when the HC ruling came in. The state government has moved apex court seeking stay to the HC ruling. But even if the government gets the stay, the last day of sanction, June 15, is over. "We are trying to extend the deadline to July 15. This would help us in starting the colleges from this academic year," said an official from the higher and technical education department.
