The sources said that BCA and BSc(IT) students were denied to get admissions into direct second year for MCA courses. Since last two years, these colleges are found ignoring the rules of AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education).
According to the rules of AICTE, those students who have completed BCA and BSC(IT) are eligible to get direct admissions into second years MCA.
According to the Sources, there are a total of about 8000 seats in MCA in the state, out of which 600 seats should be for BCA and Bsc (IT) students.
Manish Doshi, Former Gujarat University Syndicate member said "To earn more money, the colleges are denying admissions to students into the second year MCA. It seems like, these colleges are putting their financial interest before academics".
"The reason for non-implementation is the loss of one year of fees, which can be from Rs. 55000 to Rs. 80000 for per students Annually. We have sent a letter regarding the issue to the State Government also", he said.
Also, the AICTE had directed colleges to leave 20% seats in the second year of MCA for those seeking direct entry to MCA. Few states including Maharashtra have already started to implement this into action.
