Hyderabad, November 12, 2014 -  The special counselling permitted by the Supreme Court to fill the convener seats in the 139 de-affiliated engineering colleges did not bring any cheers to the managements. With some not even getting a single admission while others just managing to get only a meagre intake, several colleges were even contemplating to shut down. In the special counselling held between November 5-7 after a continue long legal fight, as many as 24 colleges registered zero admissions. Another 66 colleges recorded admissions below 15 for all the streams, according to   Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE).

It may be recalled that of all 175 engineering colleges that were stripped off its affiliation by the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University - Hyderabad, apparently at the behest of the state government, only 139 engineering colleges  had moved the apex court and were asked to conduct special counselling. While four colleges opted out of counselling, the remaining 135 colleges tried their luck in the special counselling.  Much to their disappointment, for the total 45,293 convener quota seats, a mere 3,261 students attended certificate verification. Of them, 3,115 exercised web options and got seat allotment. As a result, as many as 42,178 seats under convener quota remained vacant. Engineering college managements, who were now worrying about the fate of the colleges, attribute this to delay in commencing admission process and also uncertainty over whether or not a particular college would pass another round of inspection which the apex court had mandated JNTU-Hyderabad to carry out for anomalies in colleges.

“The Supreme Court has instructed to carry out another round of inspection and submit the report by December 31. The inspection is underway,” said T Papi Reddy, chairman of the TSCHE.
