“Close Down Unethical Private Engineering Colleges in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh” ―Professor M.S.Rao

“If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher.” ― APJ Abdul Kalam

There are several private engineering colleges in the state of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh which don’t comply with the guidelines of All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and their affiliated universities. These private colleges show fake list of students to claim more fee reimbursements and show fake faculty to show to the regulators during their inspections. They use the principals of their educational institutions as puppets and change their rules and regulations arbitrarily. Some of the private engineering colleges don’t give degree certificates to students who claim fee imbursement at the time of leaving their colleges. Students must pay the money to get their original degree certificates as they have to join employment immediately after their course completion. These colleges swallow the fee reimbursed by the government and also collect fee from their students who claimed fee reimbursement. Likewise, there are many irregularities in the private engineering colleges of both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. This is from the perspective of students.

The faculty members in these private colleges are not treated professionally. They are treated like their personal servants, not like intellectuals who share their knowledge with students. They are not paid summer salaries, and they are removed arbitrarily by the managements of these private colleges. Although the regulating bodies like AICTE, JNTU and OU are aware of these irregularities, they are helpless because these managements have nexus with top politicians across the political parties. Some of the managements of these colleges behave like goons, not as professional entrepreneurs. When faculty leaves the colleges, they are not paid with their last month salaries.  To avoid paying last month salaries, they rise silly charges or file wrong cases to browbeat them to avoid rebellion by other faculty members. Worse, they instigate other faculty to fight with the quitting faculty. It is like ‘divide and rule’ policy. If required, they send goons to the houses of the faculty members who complain about the irregularities within the colleges. These notorious owners of these private colleges use all kinds of threats and coercion to avoid paying last month salary to their employees.  The regulating bodies are aware of these irregularities but they are not in a position to take action against these erring managements.

The press is the fourth pillar of democracy. Hence, it must voice against such irregularities within the educational institutions to bring justice to the faculty, employees and students of these private engineering colleges.  If required, CBI must intervene to check irregularities within these erring private colleges including corruption. Remember, the day corruption enters into Indian educational institutions and Indian Armed Forces, the country will collapse. Hence, coordinated efforts from all stakeholders including parents, students, faculty, press, the regulatory bodies, nonprofits and CBI must be initiated to cleanse the system.  Jai Hind!

  1. The owners of these rogue colleges treat employees as their servants. they don't respect faculty as intellectuals. They treat them as puppets. They collect a huge money from students in the name of projects or seminars or training programs. They don't pay salaries to faculty on time. They also remove faculty by filing wrong cases. When faculty question them for not removing salaries, they use all kinds of threats to cow down them. Intellectuals are also divided due to their ego problems. Hence, these private owners who have close connection with local goondas use all kinds of tactics to trouble faculty. They break so many rules laid down by AICTE and their affiliated universities.
