The management of nearly 45 private engineering colleges, led by actor and chairman of Sree Vidyanikethan group of institutions Dr. M. Mohan Babu, met the deputy chief minister on Monday for tabling the demands of private college managements.

The members demanded to implement changes in the criteria for admission into category-B management quota seats in engineering colleges under EAMCET.

The demands included doing away with the criteria for admission into management quota seats on the basis of EAMCET ranking.

The college managements sought marks scored in qualifying intermediate public examination to be considered as the criteria for seeking admissions citing clarity in admissions for applicants.

Further, the managements also proposed that the online system of admission to management quota seats be done away with. Since academic session 2012-13, the colleges were instructed to display the vacancies and merit list of candidates selected for admission in each stream on their respective websites.

The system was introduced following reports on the sale of management quota seats to the highest bidder by private engineering colleges.

“A committee will be formed to address the proposal in course of time,” said commissioner of technical education, Ajay Jain.
