THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has ordered winding up all courses in a self-financing college — P A Aziz College of Engineering and Technology, Karakulam — and directed the higher education department to shift its students to nearby colleges. Such a development is the first since the professional education sector was opened up for private players in the state.  The order, issued on October 13, followed a study on the academic and other facilities at the college by an appellate committee of the council on the basis of a request from the higher education department in March this year.  The Justice James committee, overseeing admission and fees in private colleges, had earlier given similar instructions to the government following complaints. The government, however, preferred to wait for the AICTE order as any action purely on the basis of the committee report could be challenged in court.

The Kerala Technological University had also refused affiliation to the college this year and only the seventh and third semester students study in the college now.  The AICTE had denied approval to the college in 2013-14 but it was revoked the next year after the management made partial improvements and gave assurances. The council report said the college lacked enough faculty, lab equipment and even a permanent electricity connection.  Besides, the higher education department pointed out that no practical classes were conducted at the college. It also didn’t provide mess facilities, uniforms or bus services to students though fees were collected for these in advance. – Courtesy
