Private colleges in Anantapur deny original certificates to students

ANANTAPUR: Private colleges refuse to return original certificates filed by thousands of students for admission to these institutions, whether they offer PG courses like M. Tech or MCA, or degrees like B. Tech; on the reimbursement of fees payable by the state government to these colleges for the admission of students.

The case relating to the reimbursement of costs is pending before the court. As the issue is still unresolved, students, who successfully completed their courses in 2019, are still struggling to recover their original certificates, whether SSC, intermediate, license or diploma, which they had submitted to their colleges.

Students are especially concerned as nearly 16 colleges across the state have ended the MBA and M. Tech courses they offered and 14 colleges have reduced their participation in B. Tech courses. There is no information on the reopening of at least 10 other engineering schools.

“There is no single point of contact to provide details of our certificate issuance. Many of these colleges have even been converted to international schools,” aggrieved students Anjaneyulu and Hussain Peera pointed out. The open grounds of some colleges have even turned into real estate. sites.

Students are also concerned that nearly 85 private ITIs are not enrolling any students. About 68 ITIs have less than ten students.

“The State Council for Higher Education (SCHE) should take action against such private colleges. They should be asked to go through the admission process,” said Suresh Babu of Praja Science Vedika. He wanted information about courses, affiliation, endorsements and admission to these institutions to be placed on the website.

SCHE should appoint an ombudsman with independent authority to review student grievances, one student asked.
