|Biometric system must for colleges
hyderabad,Jan 21 Biometric attendance is going to be made compulsory for teachers and also undergraduate students in engineering colleges affiliated to the Jawaharlal Nehru University; otherwise the affiliation for the academic year 2019-20 will be cancelled.
Biometric systems have not been introduced in most of the colleges and it was found that paper attendance was leading to a lot of manipulations as teachers were taking leave by signing on the forms and not teaching in classes. There have been 'informal complaints' made to the department about teachers taking duty leave without informing the administration.
For this reason, colleges and special centres have been asked to install the biometric system and ensure that teachers and undergraduates punch in their attendance. The system exists for post graduates and the administration department but the other faculty had not been enrolled in the system, stated senior officials in the higher education department. For duty leave, written permission is must.

|Demand for Advanced Supplementary Exams
hyderabad,Jul 12 First year and second year engineering students are demanding that the JNTU-H hold advanced supplementary exams to help them avoid detention due to lack of credits. Students must secure a minimum of 24 credits out of 48 in order to be promoted to the second year. They alleged that about 10,000 students were detained this year due to the credit-based detention system. In 2017, another 10,000 students were detained for not securing enough credits in the first year.
Mr Goutham Rao, president, Telangana Engineering College Association, pointed out that advanced supplementary exams were conducted last year. Experts said the advanced supplementary should be limited to the final year. Dr Srini Bhupalam, an education expert, said, “Detention due to insufficient credits is of a student’s own making. If a student could not pass after five months of classwork and study time, expecting a different outcome in the advance supplementary is not realistic’’.

|JNTU de-affiliates 147 engg. colleges
|Andhra Pradesh,Dec 28
Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Kadiam Srihari said of the 346 engineering colleges, 147 colleges were de-affiliated by the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University for failing to adhere to norms.
Following inspection by the JNTU teams, it came to light that private colleges with no minimum standards had been showing fake student strength and been collecting funds from the government under the fee reimbursement scheme. Seventeen Pharma and 10 MBA colleges were also de-affiliated for falling short of required standards.
Subsequently at the direction of the Chief Minister, Vigilance and Enforcement teams had inspected 683 colleges and submitted two reports on violation of affiliation norms and misuse of welfare funds. The reports were being analysed, Mr. Srihari informed the Legislative Council on Tuesday.
Responding to Leader of Opposition Md.Ali Shabbir on private universities, he said the State government did not make any announcement yet. However, he pointed out that private universities were functioning in 24 States ruled by different parties. Only States like Kerala, J&K, Telangana and Tripura did not have private universities. The government wanted to first study how the private universities were being run. He said proposals for 80 more degree colleges were under government consideration. New colleges would be started in Asifabad and Dichpally soon and two junior colleges in Old City would be upgraded.
|Hyderabad JNTU to act tough on college faculty
With 11,199 out of 48,000 BTech first year students failing to get the required credits for promotion to the second year, the JNTU has decided to take tough measures to ensure quality teaching in affiliated engineering colleges.
The varsity wants the colleges to recruit Ph.D faculty to meet the norms for each course or reduce their student intake per course.
As per the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) norms, the teacher-student ratio in engineering colleges should be 1:15. The cadre ratio of professors, associate and assistant professors should be 1:2:6.
In view of the dearth of Ph.D faculty, JNTU has decided to give some relaxation on this issue. There should be one senior professor (with PhD) for 120 students and one additionally for every 60 students thereafter. Therefore, if a college has 240 students in CSE, the faculty should comprise at least three PhD holders. JNTU vice-chancellor A. Venugopal Reddy said the decision was taken in view of criticism that teaching standards were plunging in affiliated colleges.
“Almost one-fourth of the 2015 batch students have failed to get 28 credits out of the required 56 credits for promotion to the second year. Since students are at risk of losing a full year, the supplementary exam was conducted in advance; 5,600 candidates cleared them while 5,500 failed again,” he said.
“There may be many reasons for the students’ below-par performance, but the varsity has resolved to take steps so that teaching quality improved in all affiliated colleges,” he said.
|Affiliated colleges in a fix over Phd conditions
Affiliated colleges said they were in a tight spot as there were not enough doctorates in engineering available for recruitment.
“The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) knows this and is not insisting on the cadre ratio. They are only looking at the faculty-student ratio and other infrastructure,” a member of Telangana Private Engineering Colleges Association said.
“The AICTE itself is not insisting on PhD faculty but JNTU is asking us to follow it at any cost," he said. Many colleges have applied for closure in the last two years.
|JNU to collaborate with Military College
|Andhra Pradesh,Dec 16
Jawaharlal Nehru University and Military College of Electronics and Mechanical Engineering (MCEME) would soon have more exchange of students and faculty, said Vice-Chancellor of JNU M. Jagadesh Kumar.
Mr. Kumar, who was in the city for the convocation ceremony of MCEME graduates on Thursday, said a common alumni network could also be planned for the future.
JNU has been issuing under-gradauate and postgraduate degrees to military engineers who graduate from the MCEME. “Productive exchange between the two institutes will yield positive results,” Mr. Kumar said. The V-C also inspected the college that was established in 1953.
In the convocation ceremony, 70 B.Tech and M.Tech students graduated from the varsity. Mr. Kumar urged students to contribute to the nation’s progress. “We should be aiming at a corruption-free society,” he said.
The graduates should work towards equitable sustainable society and achieve good governance.
Supporting the Skill India initiative of the Union government, the V-C said regional, territorial and cyber world security of the country was in hands of young men and women who enter the defence forces. “Young people have the responsibility to shape India in a better way.” As many as 17 graduates received special medals and trophies for excellence in education.
|University Grants Commission makes it easy for colleges
The UGC has amended rules for granting autonomous status to colleges, with universities being told to clear applications within three months. “If the varsity fails to take any decision within three months, it shall be presumed that the university has no objection to the proposal,” the UGC said. Chaitanya Degree College in Warangal waited for 10 years before it got the NoC. College chairman C. Purushotham Reddy felt the UGC decision would expedite the process and formalities along with UGC nod could be completed in six months.
Former NAAC director V.S. Prasad said, “No university will like to give up its authority over colleges under its jurisdiction. As there was no timeline, it was up to the universities to give a clearance.” Asked about the order, JNTU registrar Dr N. Yadaiah said the university would have no problem with the UGC deadline.
|JNTU Hyderabad not to get tech fee in time
With the government not in a position to release fee reimbursement dues, professional colleges have expressed their helplessness to pay the common services fee to JNTU for this year.
This means that the varsity will be short of nearly Rs 100 crore revenues. According to the JNTU registrar, the varsity will now have to look for alternative resources to extend services to the affiliated colleges. Like every year, the varsity had written to all engineering, MBA, MCA, and pharmacy colleges this month.
The common services fee contributes a major chunk of revenue to the varsity. Each college has to pay Rs 1,500 to Rs 2,000 per head depending on the year of study of students. There are nearly 300 engineering colleges and most pay in the range of Rs 22 lakh to Rs 80 lakh depending on the number of students studying.
JNTU registrar Dr N. Yadaiah said that the varsity collected the fee for services such as faculty development programmes, curriculum revision and content development, workshops and staff training, co-ordination meetings, university publications and examination related services.
Telangana Private Engineering and Professional Colleges Management Association general secretary K. Sunil Kumar said that colleges were not in a position to pay full salaries to their staff, leave alone the services fee to the varsity.
The issue was brought to the notice of varsity officials and then to education minister Kadiam Srihari. We told him that colleges were facing financial woes and sought time till the first week of March to pay 25 per cent of the amount. The minister agreed and gave directions to JNTU officials,” he said.
|JNTU Hyderabad justifies detention system
The JNTU-Hyderabad administration on Wednesday announced that the detention system in first year was introduced so that freshers could take the study seriously and excel in it.
This statement comes in the backdrop of demand by detained first year students to allow them to attend second year classes. Registrar Dr N. Yadaiah said that detention system for first year students that was already in place in other varsities was introduced in JNTU only last year.
“This was informed to all the first year students. But still over 11,000 students could not clear the required 28 credits out of the 56 for them to be promoted to second year. After representations from students that they were not aware of the detention rule, advanced supplementary exams were held in which over 5620 students cleared the required credits,” he said.
|More colleges to get IoT Maker Spaces
Hyderabad Software Enterprises Association (HYSEA) and Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge (TASK) have decided to extend IoT Maker Spaces, which serves as labs for building prototypes, to 18 more engineering colleges affiliated to the JNTU-H.

Over 1,500 students participated in the project and 22 products were shortlisted for support and mentorship. HYSEA and TASK had signed an MoU for the programme last August.
The IoT Maker Spaces would be equipped to build IoT/Smart City products. A structured year-long programme towards building market ready technology products and special internships/placements is to be launched, a release said.
|Detained BTech students protest outside JNTU campus
BTech students who took admission last year under the R15 batch staged a protest outside the JNTU campus, alleging that it had detained them without a clear plan. JNTU detained around 13,000 students for not getting the minimum 28 credits in the first year. Around 8,000 failed to clear the supplementary exams in August which were held after protests.
These detained students will have to get the requi-red credits by writing the supplementary exams next year and join their juniors who took admission in 2016 under R16, in the second year. B. Venkat, NSUI student leader, said, “R16 students had 16 subjects in two semesters in the first year, R15 students had 11. Students fear there might be subjects in the second year of R16 which have connection with subjects in the first two semesters which the R15 students did not have.”
JNTU registrar Prof N. Yadaiah said, “There is no confusion. The detained first-year R15 students can clear their supplementary exams, get the credits, join R16 in the second year. R15 students have more credits in first year than R16.”
|Detained tech students get a new chance by JNTU-Hyderabad
The JNTU-Hyderabad on Tuesday announced that it would conduct advanced supplementary exams from the last week of August for the 13,085 first-year engineering and pharmacy students who were detained for not getting sufficient credits.
JNTU-H stated in a press release that students securing the required credits will be promoted to the second year.
They were asked to submit an undertaking to the effect that they would be prepared for detention if they do not get the required credits.
As per the regulations formulated for students who joined B.Tech and B.Pharmacy in 2015-16, each student should get 28 out of 56 credits to get promotion from the first to the second year.
|BE-1 students protest at JNTUH
Hundreds of engineering students from various colleges who were detained in their first year staged a protest at the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University on Monday. The students were demanding that the university conduct a supplementary exam for them.
Police took 16 students into preventive custody. The students are planning a protest march on Tuesday. Around 14,000 first-year students were detained after the JNTU made it mandatory for students to clear at least 50 per cent of the 56 credits.
Students failing to get 28 credits are detained and there is no supplementary exam option. This costs them a year, and they have to pay the fee for that year,
On Monday there were rumours that some students had attempted suicide.
There was, however, one report of a first year student from St Martin's Engineering College who attempted suicide but was dissuaded by his friends.
A first year student at a private engineering college said they should be given one chance. “If we do not clear it, we can be detained. There is a lot of stigma associated with being detained,” he said.
M, Krishank, Osmania University JAC leader, who led protests outside JNTU said the university should give students a second chance.
