Counselling for admissions to Engineering Colleges is likely to commence on August 23, 2012 and classes will start from the third week of September. Officials hope that the statement over the fee-structure and reimbursement will be resolved on Thursday, when the cabinet sub-committee is expected to meet and make a announcement on the fee hike and the schedule for admissions to engineering colleges as well.
Meanwhile, this approach of the government to engineering college managements appear to be yielding the desired results. The cabinet committee will meet on Thursday and announce the schedule. The government hopes that the managements of all Engineering colleges will furnish undertaking letters to officials of higher education that they are agreeing to a fee of Rs.35,000 per annum for two years.
According to the sources, Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and Deputy Chief Minister Damodar Rajanarasimha had thrown a scare into the college managements with the threat of sudden inspections. As most of the colleges are not following the AICTE norms and depriving their students of quality education, the managements have finally fallen in line with the government's proposed fee of Rs.35,000, which is a nominal hike of Rs.4000 for a convener quota seat and almost Rs.60,000 less than what is charged for a management quota seats.
The total number of seats for Engineering in the state is 3.2 lakh and only two lakh candidates have qualified in the EAMCET. Of the qualified, around 50,000 students have migrated to other states.
However, the most awaited EAMCET 2012 schedule for Engineering will be finally declared by a day or two. For more updates keep visiting. We shall provide complete Schedule details and more for Engineering Admissions.
