Finally, The Madhya Pradesh Private University Regulatory Commission (MPPURC) has given its green signal to private universities to admit students for engineering courses through JEE, from the next academic year.
MPPURC has not made it compulsory to all universities, they can have their own entrance test as well for the admission. Till now, private universities have been taking only 15% admission through JEE.
DR. AK Pandey, chairman of the commission "It will help private universities in streamlining the admission process."
While replying to the question that why MPPURC didn't make it mandatory to give admission through JEE, he says "every University has their own structure and process for admission. We have given them option."
The directorate of technical education (DTE) had abolished state pre-engineering test this year and admissions to the government and private engineering colleges would now be done through JEE.
There are 11 private universities in the state where around 20,000 students are studying in the different engineering courses. They include AISECT (Bhopal), ASK University (Satna), Amity University (Gwalior), Jaypee University (Guna), Oriental University (Indore), RKDF University (Bhopal), People's University (Bhopal), SVN University (Sagar), Jagran Lake City (Bhopal) and Techno Global University (Sironj).
