Meanwhile, The Employment and Technical Education and Training (ET&T) department has asked the Odisha Joint Entrance Examination (OJEE) Committee to prepare the seat matrix of private professional and technical institutes as per its guidelines and not follow what the All-India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) has approved.
The department shot off a letter to Chairman of OJEE Prof L N Panda and said the seat matrix must be prepared as per its decisions sidelining the approval of the AICTE, which are not in line with the recommendation of the State Government.
Sources said the AICTE has not sent its approval for the enhanced 350 seats for College of Engineering and Technology (CET), a leading government institution.
"All our 11 branches are approved by the AICTE. The Government decision to increase the intake came earlier this year after the AICTE sanctioned its approval for the academic session. But, Since it is a government college, an AICTE approval is not required," Principal Prof P K Hota said.
