The professional colleges of the state have been hit hard with the worst admission scenario this year. A total of approximately 39,000 seats were unable to find sufficient takers after the completion of the last round of admissions.
In a landmark judgment, a bench comprising Chief Justices G Rohini and Rajiv Sahai Endlaw remarked that it is really intriguing to know that the IITs and the NITs are unable to find a viable solution for synchronizing the process of admission. Since, both the institutions of high repute provide consultancy to others on technical matters, they are expected to eliminate or at least minimize the issue of vacant seats.
With only a week left for the completion of the entire process and 60,000 students still remaining to be called, another 30, 00 0 seats are likely to be filled up. Also, the number of students who abstain is likely to shoot is the latter half of the counselling as seats in leading colleges would be filled.
The report mentioned as many as 68 colleges to have resorted such dubious tactics while furnishing details in a matter related to the sixth pay scales for teaching staff and ninth PRC scales for non-teaching staffs. Only 12 colleges were found to have submitted information that was completely true.
In the petition, the CBSE students stated the disadvantage faced by the students of other boards as compared to their state board counterparts, due to the calculation method. In response to the petition, the HC asked the students as well as the state government to verify their stand on the issue.
Ever since the formation of the Rajasthan Technical University (RTU), the admission to engineering colleges in the state is witnessing a major setback. This year, over 40,000 seats are likely to remain vacant out of the 65,000 seats.
