BENGALURU:  OF the total 200 engineering colleges affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belagavi, 44 colleges have been listed under the C and D category. Colleges that lack infrastructure and do not have qualified teaching faculty members are listed under C and D categories. The categorisation has been done following the recent submission of Local Inquiry Committee (LIC) reports, which have been placed before the Academic senate of the university. Of  the 44 colleges, 8 are government colleges and the rest are private (both aided and unaided). A communication has been sent to the principals of the respective colleges informing about it.

Speaking to The New Indian Express, Prof Jagannath Reddy, registrar of the university said, “These colleges have been warned to fall in line with the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and VTU norms as  far as infrastructure and faculty is concerned. If they fail to  improve by the next LIC visit, university will be forced to initiate further action against these colleges.”As per the observation made by LIC committees during their visit, these 44 colleges do not have proper infrastructure, lack laboratory facilities and even the teachers are not well-qualified.

    The above methodology for survey is not completely appropriate . I feel the above criteria should have been based on Academic performances of colleges. It would have been better if they could have ranked the colleges under VTU based on the acadamic results too.
