HYDERABAD: All admissions to degree-level courses in colleges will be conducted online in the state.

Degree Online Services, Telangana (DOST) will be introduced soon and admissions will be conducted through DOST.

At a review meeting on the education department held at his camp office here on Wednesday, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao said that with the introduction of DOST, students need not go to colleges for paying admission fee. Moreover, they can  select the college where they want to study. Another advantage with online admissions is it will check irregularities in the fee reimbursement scheme.

Online admissions are currently in vogue in the state for engineering and medical college seats. The same system will be introduced for degree colleges too.

Admission and tuition fees for degree courses will be decided by the state government as in the case of professional courses. The fee will be less in degree colleges located in rural areas.

“The fee will be fixed in consultation with the managements of respective degree colleges,” sources said.

The government will classify degree colleges as autonomous, premier, minority and other.

REVAMP: Those who have graduated from degree colleges are finding it hard to get jobs. “The present graduate education system should be revamped in such a way that students can get jobs,” Rao told the officials.

The routine courses and practices in education sector should be completely changed. Implementation of the new education policy needed a lot of changes in the present education system. The respective private college managements too should cooperate, Rao said, adding, “the government’s aim is to provide quality education from KG to PG.”

Rao warned that stern action would be taken against the managements of colleges which were showing fake faculty and running the institutions without students.

Rao suggested that professional educational institutions which did not have faculty or students and gobbling government fund should be closed down voluntarily by the managements.

UNIVERSITIES: Turning his attention to state universities, Rao lamented their pathetic condition. Rao said and directed officials concerned to furnish details on their status of universities soon, so proper action could be taken.
