Schools9 EAMCET Results 2015

Adding a new twist to the Common Entrance Test (CET) imbroglio, the Telangana government on Wednesday issued an order giving powers to the Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE) to conduct CETs for students of both the states. 

AP RESULTS ON MAY 21st, 11am


As per the GO (MS No -33) issued late in the evening, TSCHE will conduct all CETs including Eamcet this year. The order stated that Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University will be the nodal agency for conducting Eamcet-2015.

The GO quoted Section 101 of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014 which states that the appropriate government, "that is the state of Telangana, empowered by order" to adapt any law made before June 2, 2014. The GO stated that under this provision, it can declare TSCHE as the successor organization of the erstwhile AP State Council of Higher Education. 

The TSCHE will now be using all entrance and admission rules, represented in 14 GOs issued earlier, to conduct CETs, the GO stated. Experts said the GO is an open challenge to the existence of the State Council of Higher Education headed by L Venugopal Reddy. On December 29, Venugopal had come out with a tentative schedule for all CETs. 

Declaring the State Council of Higher Education null and void, the GO declared Telangana State Council of Higher Education as the "successor organisation of AP State Council of Higher Education as per Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014." The GO further said that the "government of Telangana shall conduct Eamcet, 2015 and offer this facility of common test to AP state also." 

As per the GO, examination will be held by an admission's committee under the chairman nominated by the Telangana government. However, the GO said that a representative of AP state can be included as a member in the admissions committee and this person will be in charge of overseeing the conduct of Eamcet-2015 in AP. This nominee will also be in charge of the admission process in AP. 

The order was issued by chief secretary Rajiv Sharma. The AP government, however, has not responded to the GO. This would mean that the CET schedule issued by State Council of Higher Education headed by Venugopal Reddy is still applicable. "Both the governments are interpreting the AP Reorganisation Act in their own way to suit their own ends. This tug of war will affect the future of lakhs of students in both the states," an official said. ]
