BENGALURU: Students of the Ambedkar Institute of Technology (AIT) near the Jnana Bharati campus staged a protest on Wednesday alleging that the college management did not conduct placement training after collecting fees.

All the 4,000 students of the college joined hands with the 800 7th semester engineering students in the protest. According to the students, the college management had collected `5,500 per head two months ago for placement training.

“But, till date, no training has been conducted and whenever we ask, they say it will commence soon,” the 7th semester students said.

“Most of the colleges have already completed the placement process, but our college has not taken a step till date,” said another student.

A second semester student said, “Today our seniors are facing this problem; who knows about tomorrow.”

Students also alleged that the college management has been increasing the fees every year. “In the name of development fee, they are collecting `10,000 every year extra.”

The college authorities, who arrived on the campus an hour after the protest started, assured the students of starting the placement training classes from September 14.

“But, we have no information on who will conduct the training, which companies they have invited. We will wait and see,” the students said. The college authorities were not available for comment.
