VISAKHAPATNAM: With the Board of Intermediate Education’s decision to shutdown the unrecognised colleges and the colleges which had not been following the guidelines as per the government directions with a special drive, the violators have decided to urge the government to provide a special opportunity to regularise their colleges. Already some of the college managements had approached a minister seeking his intervention.

According to sources, the minister told the college managements to form society and request the government to relax some guidelines. As the issue involves fate of thousands of students, the government would consider the request with some conditions like before the new academic year commences, the managements have to pay some penal amounts to get the recognition. The sources also said that the minister had suggested to some of the colleges, which have been struggling to stay afloat with less number of students, faculty and other issues, to run the institutions jointly by merging the institutions and urge the government to regularise them. With the minister’s suggestions, some of the college managements have started working on alternatives.

Meanwhile, the BIE officials alerted the Regional Intermediate Officers (RIOs) to exercise caution while dealing with students of private colleges going for the final examinations. Some of the colleges had already submitted examination applications. In fact, the college managements have to submit applications for the examinations only for the students who are studying in their respective colleges. However, some of the unrecognised colleges and some branch colleges of the main college are sending their students to the examinations through the recognised colleges.

“True, the RIOs have to check the irregularities. The RIOs have to visit the recognised colleges periodically and check the student strength. There are other irregularities like some private colleges  not recruiting qualified lecturers and also flouting academic calendar. However, for various reasons, parents also do not lodge any complaint though they might be aware of such irregularities. If any college is found sending more number of students than  the number of students on rolls for the examinations, the recognition will be cancelled and a case will also be filed against the management. However, the BIE has decided to check all the violations in the special drive,” a BIE senior official said.
