The Telangana government on Jan 12th maintained that they are open to continuing non-local reservations in the state's educational institutions. However, it ruled out a common entrance test for both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
As per Telangana government's plan, students of the state will have to attend entrance tests conducted by it.Admissions will also be held separately . In a media briefing held by Papi Reddy , chairman, Telangana State Council of Higher Education, the Telangana government made it clear that two examinations would be held for admission to engineering and other pro fessional courses in 2015. The announcement was made as no consensus was reached after a high-level meeting held between officials of the two state councils of higher education located in the city.
As per the current reservations system, 85% of the seats are reserved for students from the state and 15% seats are left for open competition for students from both residual AP and Telangana. “Non-local reservations can be maintained but we cannot agree on a common examination. Any trouble including the leak of question paper would affect students of both the states. We cannot allow that,“ said Madhusudan Reddy , president, Telangana Junior College Lecturers' Association.
