TN govt to decide on admissions to self-financing colleges
Chennai, June 6 (UNI) The Tamil Nadu government would decide within a week the process to be adopted for admission to fill management quota seats in self-financing engineering colleges in the state, Minister for Higher Education K Ponmudi said today.
Talking to newspersons after a meeting with representatives of 187 self-financing engineering colleges here, he said the government was thinking of a single window system for admission to management quota on the lines of that used by Anna University for government colleges.
The decision to be taken would put an end to the confusion created by the previous AIADMK regime, he said, adding that he had asked the Higher Education secretary to hold discussions with the Subramani committee to decide on the conduct of a common entrance test. ''A positive decision on this will come soon,'' he said.
The committee was constituted by the previous government on the orders of the Supreme Court for the purpose of conducting entrance test for admission to management quota in self-financing colleges.
Mr Ponmudi stressed the need for such colleges to implement 69 per cent reservation in admission and adhere to the fee structure proposed by the Raman committee.
Anna University Vice-Chancellor D Viswanathan, Higher Education Secretary A Ganesan, Technical Education Commissioner Zaithinranath Swain, All India Medical and Engineering Colleges Association (AIMECA) President T D Naidu and Sathyabama Deemed University Chancellor Jeppiar were among others who were present at the meeting.
