A public interest petition has been filed in the High Court seeking action against the managements of colleges which obtained university affiliation by producing forged and fabricated documents.
Petitioner G Bala Raju, lecturer at Medchal in Ranga Reddy district, submitted to the court that he found nearly 100 junior colleges had obtained affiliation by producing forged documents and putting in signatures of MLAs and MPs as president and members of their education societies.
He has submitted documents of two societies to substantiate his charges.
Colleges having ‘illegal’ affiliation are resorting to change the managements and are influencing the authorities concerned through political leaders for the purpose.
After obtaining information under the Right to Information Act a representation was made to the authorities for cancellation of the affiliation of some of the colleges, but no action has been taken till date.
Students were the ultimate sufferers due to lack of quality education, he said.
The petitioner requested the court to direct authorities not to grant permission for change of management of the colleges functioning under the societies, and also not to sanction additional sections to such colleges which included new private unaided colleges for 2012-13.
Principal secretary (education), commissioner of Intermediate Education, secretary to Board of Intermediate Education, district regional inspecting officer and others are named respondents.
