Pvt colleges set conditions for uniform CET

Members of the Forum, which consists of 57 engineering colleges all set up after 1997, at a meeting held here on Sunday made known their inclination for a uniform entrance test, and simultaneously sought a common fee structure.

They demanded that the government should stop sanctioning new colleges and courses after March 2010. The managements of unaided colleges will meet again on January 24. Deccan Herald had reported earlier that the government was willing to concede around 10 per cent of the seats to non-Karnataka students, but is yet to formulate an agreeable proposition for the fee structure.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, the Forum’s Vice-President  K B Munivenkata Reddy said there was high probability of unaided private colleges moving away from COMED-K. If the government assures us that non-Karnataka students will be admitted through CET  we will pledge all our seats to CET,” he said.

Another demand put forth by the Forum is that there should be single round of counselling to complete the admission process. “The government should discontinue the casual round of counselling. We also request the government to stop including new colleges sanctioned during the counselling process in the seat matrix,” Reddy said.
