AP EdCET Online Application 2015

AP HRD Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao on Jan 19th Monday sought Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan’s intervention after the Telangana State Higher Education Council (TSHEC) announced its schedule for holding the EAMCET exam. Charging the TS government with acting unilaterally on the issue of local/non-local, he said it was not heeding to suggestions made by Mr. Narasimhan. Mr. Rao rushed to Raj Bhavan, a few hours after the TSHEC’s announcement.

Mr. Rao said he had taken to the notice of the Governor the manner in which the TSCHE was acting. He termed as “atrocious”, the request of the TS government to freeze the bank accounts of the AP State Higher Education Council. He maintained that the TSCHE did not have legal sanctity, and that the APSHEC was the authentic body to conduct EAMCET.

He also accused the TS government of not honouring the AP Reorganisation Act and urged it to accept the suggestions made by the Governor. AP is willing to hold a combined exam if the TS government agreed to Governor’s advice, he added.  

As per the tentative schedule issued by the Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE), the Eamcet is to be held on May 10. Icet will be held on May 16, Ecet for engineering (lateral entry for polytechnic students) will be held on May 14 and Edcet on May 28. Lawcet and PG Lawcet will be held on June 30, days after the PG Ecet is held on May 25 and PECET is held on May 14. APSCHE had, however, not assigned any university for the task of conducting Cets.

Charging that the Telangana higher education council had no legal sanctity, Andhra Pradesh HRD minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao met governor E S L Narasimhan on Jan 19th, Monday evening and sought his intervention in the holding of the Eamcet and other common admission tests. Ganta met the governor soon after Telangana announced its dates for holding the Eamcet.“The Telangana Higher Education Council has no legal sanctity. I brought this to the notice of the governor and also spoke of the adamant attitude of the Telangana government in holding its separate admission tests,“ the minister told the media after the meeting.
