Engineering students' intake increased by 1,000 in K'taka

Written by: Staff

Bangalore, May 18 (UNI) The Karnataka cabinet's Sub-Committee on Higher Education has given clearance for increasing the intake of engineering students by 1,000 in 12 colleges in Karnataka, Primary and Secondary Education Minister Basavaraj Horatti informed today.

Briefing reporters here after a meeting of the Sub-Committee, he said the Government went ahead with the clearance only to protect the interests of the students, despite stiff opposition from engineering colleges which formed part of COMED-K.

Otherwise, outside students would have taken advantage of the situation and grabbed the jobs available in the State, he added.

Mr Horatti said the Visweshwaraiah Technological University was also not in favour of increasing the capacity on the grounds of lack of infrastructure facilities.

The capacity was increased in four engineering streams, including Computer Science, Information Science and Electronics, he said.
