Affiliated Colleges 220
With the university cutting down as many as 43,000 seats following inspections to check for inadequate faculty and infrastructure, there will be close to 75,635 seats available for counselling expected to begin from July first week.
This is against 1.12 lakh seats which were available before the inspections. There are 8,200 seats in Osmania University and 2,520 in Kakatiya University also.
JNTU-H officials, including Registrar Dr. N.V. Ramana Rao also informed that the list of the affiliated colleges cleared through inspections and also the courses available will soon be made available on the university website. This will help parents and students take informed decision while choosing their web options, he said.
In-charge Vice-Chancellor Shailaja Ramaiyer explained that 220 of 245 colleges which had applied for affiliation got it as 25 other colleges were found to have violated the university
norms with regard to faculty and infrastructure and hence, have been barred from the counselling process this year.
Fifty other colleges voluntarily did not participate in the affiliation exercise. Dr. Rao also charged some private engineering colleges to have shown ‘fake’ faculty during the inspections and it was also found that in a few cases M.Tech students were presented as faculty members. He warned that the university would continue its ‘surprise’ inspections in the forthcoming academic year too.
The JNTU-H will also be setting up a ‘quality’ cell to continuously assess the colleges for their faculty and infrastructure with ratings to be given on these two key parameters. About 90,556 students have qualified in the first-ever Telangana State engineering and medicine common entrance test earlier this year.
Last year, just 52,000-odd seats were filed although there were 1.63 lakh seats available. This year there will be little over 62,000 seats in the convenor quota and 22,000-odd in the management quota.
