Most colleges, which have clocked zero pass percentage in the II PUC results announced on Thursday, have single digit  admissions.

Official information available from the Department of Pre-University Education  shows 44 colleges which have posted zero pass percentage have a combined strength of 411 students.

“We are surprised to see the students’ strength at these colleges. A majority of them have single digit students,” a senior official of the department told Express.

He said the department issued notices to these colleges on Friday. Action will be taken on the basis of the explanation they provide, he added.  “We cannot close down such colleges immediately,” he said.

“Some of these colleges belong to political leaders and are sustained by putting pressure and influence even though admissions are less. We were really surprised to see such colleges even in Bangalore,” an official remarked. Out of 44 colleges which have clocked zero pc results, nine are in Bangalore  while Bidar and Gulbarga have six each.

Speaking to Express, the department Director Dr Ramegowda said: “We have issued notices to all the 44 colleges and are waiting for their reply.”

Surprisingly, even colleges which have got cent percent results, also have less number of students.

The combined student strength  in the total 39 colleges, which have got 100 per cent results, is 2000.
