Hyderabad high court refused to stay the EAMCET 2014 counselling for admission to professional courses.
On Monday, private engineering colleges in Telangana filed a petition against Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad for cancelling the affiliation of about 174 colleges.
But, the private engineering colleges officials were reported saying that the university refused affiliations to the colleges without prior notice. They claim that the varsity has no power to refuse the affiliation, once the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi had accorded permission to run colleges.
Colleges officials requested the High Court to direct Higher Education Council to add these engineering colleges in EAMCET 2014 counselling, otherwise they would be in a loss, as almost 1.25 lakh of engineering seats would remain vacant.
Telangana advocate-general K Ramakrishna Reddy, arguing on behalf of the Higher Education Council and the University, said most of the engineering colleges in the state of Telangana do not have basic amenities, including adequate faculty, computers and toilets and the government was not going to spend its funds on such colleges.
Supreme Court had already directed the Telangana and Andhra Pradesh state governments to complete the EAMCET process by August 31.
After considering the all the requests, the High Court has decided not to stop the ongoing EAMCET counselling.
