The Supreme Court on Tuesday asked all the private engineering colleges that are seeking a belated entry into the ongoing admission process to complete the current year's academic session without disturbing the semester-wise academic plan.
The SC directed the colleges to explain the admission process, as how they would complete the current academic session.
The apex court posed this question to scores of engineering colleges from Telangana which were barred from taking part in this year's admissions process on the ground that they lack basic infrastructure that includes qualified faculty as well. The bench, which verified the affidavits filed by the colleges in this regard, said it was not convinced with the academic schedule proposed by the colleges.
"How will you complete the first semester within the next two months and start the second semester as scheduled without any disturbance," the bench asked. The second semester is supposed to start from January second week and the bench has its own doubts about the ability of these colleges to complete the first semester in the next two months and hence expressed an apprehension whether they would carry this delay forward to the subsequent semesters also. The matter will be heard again on Wednesday.
