HYDERABAD: Raising serious concern about the quality of education in the state, Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad (JNTU-H) has denied affiliation to as many as 83 engineering colleges for this academic year here on Sunday.

While, a total of 360 private colleges,  including 241 engineering colleges, 89 pharmacy colleges and 30 MBA standalone colleges had applied for affiliation, only 158 engineering colleges were granted provisional affiliation with a total of 671 courses and 79,705 seats.

A total of 46 Pharmacy colleges have been granted affiliation with 4,000 seats and as of now, no information is released about the affiliation of MBA colleges.

JNTU.jpgSpeaking to Express about the fate of the colleges that were not given affiliation, N. Yadaiah, Registrar, JNTU-H said that the university had received many complaints about the colleges.

 "We have placed about 30 to 35 colleges in pending list for various reasons. As many as 10 colleges have no principal and once the appointment is done, we will grant affiliation to them. We have received complaints against several colleges and are considering to conduct surprise inspection. If the cunctioning of colleges is found satisfied we will give affiliation," he explained.

"Colleges without principals were given 10 days time for appointment. So, in all means, we would announce the fate of these colleges before  the second phase of counselling," added Yadaiah.

When asked whether any major colleges were denied affiliation, the registrar said that complete list of affiliated colleged will be uploaded on the university website soon. "No major colleges have been denied affiliation completely. Maybe, a branch or two of a group were denied affiliation. The complete list will be uploaded on the website soon and will be available to everyone so that students can opt for the right colleges," the registrar said.

Although the numbers of seats will go down drastically, it won't have a major impact as the number of students who appeared for certificate verification is less than the number of seats which are available now.

In the state, as many as 1.03 lakh engineering aspirants have cleared TS Eamcet this year, of which 63,777 students appeared for certificate verification. The counselling commenced on June 22 and the final phase of allotment of seats will be conducted on July 30. Classes will commence on August 2.
