Appeal against HC verdict on Engg. admissions: Lok Satta

The Lok Satta Party today demanded that the State Government go in appeal immediately in the Supreme Court against the judgment of the High Court striking down the GOs facilitating on-line admission of students under management quota in engineering colleges during 2012-13.

In a media statement, Lok Satta Party General Secretary Katari Srinivasa Rao pointed out that in the absence of transparent, on-line admissions, managements of some reputed private engineering colleges not merely collect the higher fees fixed by the Government but also fleece students by collecting a capitation fee.

Pending the outcome of the Government appeal in the Supreme Court, the State Government should appoint a task force to monitor admissions under management quota in colleges notorious for collecting capitation fees.

Mr. Srinivasa Rao also suggested that the Government fix a uniform registration fee considering that some colleges have been charging exorbitant rates viewing it as an additional source of revenue. In the absence of online admissions, students have to submit separate applications for each college and each course, he added.
