State Complained Of Irregularities When Permission Was Given: HC

SFIs can’t fill seats beyond mgmt quota

Ahmedabad: The Gujarat high court has denied permission to BEd, CPEd and PTC colleges to fill up the seats that remained unfilled through the Central Admission Committee beyond allotted management quota of 10 per cent.
The court refused the permission after the government authority told the court that the colleges indulged in huge irregularities after they were given permission for the same last year.
The Association of Management of colleges who are responsible for running these colleges had approached the high court seeking direction to the authorities to permit these colleges to fill up the seats that had remained vacant even after allotment of seats from the admission committee, which is 90 per cent.
To their contention, the administrative officer of the Director of Primary Education office filed an affidavit submitting that there are 8 government PTC colleges and 43 non-government PTC colleges which are grant-in-aid, and there are 346 self-finance institutions (SFIs), wherein students are given admission by the rules only. For the academic year 2011, the admission committee had received 14,000 applications, out of which 7072 students have been granted admission till last month.
Besides providing data, the official stated that these institutes were given permission last year to fill up the remaining vacant seats by the management quota, but huge illegalities and irregularities were found in the admissions. They had shown dummy students, who were actually not present in the colleges. These students were also given certificates of admission, which were bogus.
On perusal of this affidavit, the bench headed by chief justice observed that mere grant of permission in the past does not create any legal right for the institute to fill up the vacant seats beyond management quota.
