The Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE) might have to make some alternative arrangements, since the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of educational institutions in Telangana state has decided not to give permission to conduct Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test (EAMCET).
Annoyed by the decision of the State government to conduct raids on private institutions, the JAC decided to boycott all exams and withdrew permission to use their institutions as exam centres for Polytechnic, Constable Exam, and EAMCET.
The JAC made it clear that unless the Chief Minister assures to withdraw the proposal of sending police teams to conduct inspections on educational institutions, they would not participate in spot valuation at degree colleges or conduct semester exams for the Engineering students.
According to the co-convener of JAC, no private institution will lend its space to the government to conduct entrance exams. On April 21, over one lakh students are expected to appear in the POLYCET exam. Of the 288 exam centres, 209 belong to private colleges and they are not going to lend their space to the government.
If the government does not wake up and withdraw the decision to conduct inspections sending vigilance teams, all exams including the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET), and EAMCET exams will face the same fate.
