As per the reports by the expert committee, which inspected 163 engineering colleges, 7 out of 8 B.Pharmacy courses offered on the integrated campuses for the academic year 2014-15, have also been disaffiliated.

JNTU, Hyderabad, Registrar, N V Ramana Rao said, "The same has been conveyed to the Pharmacy Council of India."

Only 20 engineering colleges out of all 163 colleges have managed to impress the expert committee on the parameters of infrastructure and retain the affiliation.

Among them, six are currently facing criminal cases for showing fake faculty to the expert committee. The university has decided to withhold their affiliation until the outcome of the police investigation.

During its inspection, the expert committee, consisting of faculty members from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Hyderabad and BITS Pilani, found that the colleges were functioning without basic facilities like qualified faculty, proper laboratories, libraries and other equipment. Some of the colleges did not even have proper computer labs.
