Many bankrupt colleges to shut shop in Andhra Pradesh

Scores of private colleges, many offering courses in information technology, will wind up operations and those that remain will cut down their intake much before Andhra Pradesh is officially bifurcated. Authorities of at least 80 colleges will write to the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) next week seeking permission to shut down their institutes as the Supreme Court in a recent order allowed AICTE to retain its powers to close or open colleges for the academic year 2014-15, pending further orders.

"We heaved a sigh of relief as many colleges are running in huge losses and are in no position to continue when there is so much political uncertainty with new states coming into being. The apex court order has been a relief to us," K Ramadas, a management representative, told. About 300 engineering colleges are expected to seek permission for reducing seats, he said, adding that many colleges were sustaining themselves on fee reimbursement from the government. The 80 institutes that will request closure offer courses in engineering, MBA, MCA, pharmacy, B.Ed. and D.Ed.

"MBA and MCA colleges in the twin states will close down by the dozens, while engineering colleges are expected to drastically cut down on their intake for information technology and electronics (IT) and electronics and electrical engineering (EEE) courses," said Ramadas.
If the closure trend continues, IT education could be taken out of most engineering colleges in the state, said N Ramesh, another management representative and educationist. "However, we have no choice left."

This year, about 20 per cent of more than 2.35 lakh engineering seats are expected to be slashed and even B.Ed. and D.Ed. colleges are facing a similar crisis, sources said. "There are a total of 620 B.Ed. and 822 D.Ed. colleges in the state. Many colleges might not get students because of the uncertainty looming over teaching jobs in the bifurcated state," an education department official said.
