Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) State working committee member K. Ramana appealed to Telangana University authorities to announce the results of 2015-16 examinations immediately, and also give undertaking to the students to pay examination fee.
At a media conference at the varsity campus on Thursday, Mr. Ramana said spot admissions were not conducted for vacant seats in different departments, and with the problems at hostels students were facing difficulty consuming the food.
He also called upon the authorities not to link every issue with cost benefit analysis as it would cost the poor students coming from rural backgrounds dearly.
Mr. Ramana said the second entrance gate of the varsity campus must be opened for the convenience of students, teachers, and staff. He suggested them to make efforts to reduce mess expenditure instead of imposing the burden onto the students.Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) State working committee member K.

|Admissions to Nims cardio course stayed
The Hyderabad High Court on Friday granted interim stay for one week on admissions to super specialty DM cardiology in Nims of Hyderabad. Justice Suresh Kumar Kait was granting the interim order while dealing with petition by Dr Madan Kumar. Dr Kumar submitted that there are eight seats in this super specialty course and as per the Presidential Order, three are reserved for Andhra University; two for Osmania and two for S.V. University area while one seat is kept aside as an open category seat.
He told the court that the authorities identified three seats for the Osmania University and only one seat for the SV University area, which is illegal. While granting the stay, the judge asked the authorities to explain.
The Hyderabad High Court on Friday told the authorities to go ahead with admission process of A and B Category seats of MBBS in Telangana state as per the fee fixed by the government for the two categories.
A division bench comprising Justice V. Rama Subramanian and Justice Anis, while admitting a petition by the Medical Students Parents Association, told the authorities to inform all the students that the fee now being paid would be subjected to the final orders on the writ petition.
The petitioner association urged the court to declare the fixing of the fee structure by the TS government for A and B Category seats without subjecting it to an institution seeking verification from Fee Regulatory Committee, as irrational and arbitrary. It was brought to the notice of the court that while students under “A” category were required to pay Rs 60,000 each, “B” category students were to pay Rs 9 lakh each.
When the bench asked counsel for the TS government why it did not consult the Fee Regulatory Commission before fixing the fee structure on its own, counsel replied that the panel was yet to be constituted in Telangana. While admitting the plea, the bench issued notices to all the respondents.

|First Year students lag behind in Telangana
Hyderabad,Apr 22 Telangana districts have registered a poor pass percentage in the Intermediate first year results that were released here on Sunday.

Other Telangana districts, such as Nizamabad, Medak and Nalgonda, had a pass percentage of just 41, followed by Warangal, 46 per cent, Adilabad, 48 per cent and Karimnagar, 47 per cent.
However, Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy and Kham-mam districts secured comparatively better results, with 64 per cent, 55 per cent and 51 per cent of students respectively passing the examination.
There’s no explanation for this poor showing in Telangana districts. There wasn’t much disruption to academic activities over the Telangana issue this year as there was in 2011 and 2012.
Districts in the Andhra region have fared much better with the pass percentage in Krishna district being 74, Visakhapatnam 66, East Godavari, 54, West Godavari, 58, Guntur, 63, Prakasam, 53, and Nellore, 64.

|Govt wakes up on Telangana medical colleges, but a little late
Hyderabad,Nov 12 Woken up rather a bit late to the short comings cited by Medical Council of India (MCI) for sanctioning additional seats for Telangana medical colleges, the state government has embarked on infrastructure building in the colleges, and the officials said the works had been taken up on a war footing so that they were completed before the arrival of the inspection team that is expected to land in the state in mid-December.
Apart from availing 50 additional seats for each of the three medical colleges in Telangana- Osmania Medical College, Hyderabad, Gandhi Medical College, Secunderabad, and Kakathiya Medical College, Warangal- the state government is looking at getting MCI clearance for the two new government colleges set up in Nizamabad and Nellore, and the officials said they were confident of convincing the inspection team.
"We have taken up all the required works including the civil works to develop infrastructure in the colleges. As far the new colleges are concerned, we have appointed the principal for Nizamabad Medical College and the Nellore Medical College is going to get one shortly. We have identified the shortcomings cited by the MCI and the corrective measures are on," said Dr. Vishnu Prasad, director of medical education.
While the union government has sanctioned Rs. 69 crore for the development of the government medical colleges in the state, Vishnu Prasad said the state government had released a matching grant of Rs. 30 crore and a government order (GO) was issued to this effect last week.
Expressing his satisfaction over the progress on the works in his college, Dr A Vivekananda, principal of Kakthiya Medical College, said he was confident of getting the additional seats this time around. "The government is taking all necessary steps to improve infrastructure and the fill up the vacancies in teaching faculty and the progress is satisfactory. And I am confident that we will get the additional seats," he said.
Having failed to get the additional seats for Telangana colleges in the current academic year, the government is under pressure to get them justice for the next academic year. The MCI had caused much heartburn among the people of Telangana in July this year by rejecting the state government's proposal to sanction additional seats, while the medical colleges in the Seemandhra region got additional seats.
Even as the officials claiming to have taken up the works on war footing, sources in the government said it was unlikely to finish the civil works in the colleges before the arrival of the inspection team. While the auditoriums, lecture halls, and demonstration rooms in all the three colleges are in bad shape, it is unlikely that renovation is done in a month's time, according to the sources. However, Vishnu Prasad said the government had requested the MCI to excuse the auditorium works for this time, and hoped the apex body of medical education would oblige.
