The impending Task Force inspections at private engineering colleges in the state are likely to hit a road block as some of the colleges plan to challenge the decision in the Supreme Court.

Private colleges which were granted a fee-hike from 2012-13 are likely to file a petition by end of the week for a stay on the inspections. The Task Force however plans to go by the schedule and take up the first batch of inspections from October first week.

“We will go by the High Court orders. We have extended the deadline for colleges to upload the data requested in the performa by September 30. A list of 100 colleges will then be selected at random by computer and each month, we will inspect one batch of colleges,” commissioner of technical education and member of state-level Task Force Ajay Jain said.

The task force reports will be submitted to the Admissions and Fee Regulatory Committee (AFRC) which will consult the High Court for necessary action against the defaulters.

The private colleges have taken exception to the role of the Task Force and inclusion of representatives from police and audit department for inspecting the infrastructure and faculty ratio of these colleges.

Around 20 to 30 engineering colleges which have been granted higher fee structures are likely to file the petition with the apex court initially. “We will wait for the second round of the Task Force inspections during which we will decide on steps to be taken,” he said.
