BENGALURU: Over 20 students who had opted for the Centre for Architecture, Mysuru, during the CET counselling were in for a shock after the Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) sent out a message asking them to opt for another college before 10 am on Monday.

The KEA’s message on Saturday followed the state government’s cancellation of approval for the college which failed to submit the no-objection certificate (NOC) provided by the Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi.

However, late on Saturday evening, VTU Vice-chancellor Dr H Maheshappa said, “The college had not submitted some land documents even after the last date, so we have written to KEA saying we have not issued NOC. However, they have submitted the same on Friday and we have written back to the higher education department and KEA about the same.”

According to information available from KEA, candidates who had secured ranks between 150 and 500 ranks had chosen this college.

The Centre for Architecture was established in collaboration with Sri Jayachamaraja Urs Education Trust (SJUET) and is located in their educational campus on Krishnaraja Boulevard, Chamaraja Mohalla, Mysuru. The president of the trust is Pramoda Devi Wadiyar of the Mysuru royal family. She is also a trustee of the Design Foster Trust, which has the recently anointed scion of the Mysuru royal family, Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar as a trustee.

Sri Jayachamarajendra Urs Educational Trust (SJUET) was established in 1957 by the then Maharaja of Mysuru, Jayachamaraja Wadiyar.
