(PLZ READ THE "bottom line " FIRST) What is happening now? The SFI- Same side goal adikraanga.Avlodhaan! NEAT! VERA onnum illa!
SFI who is supposed to work FOR the students is acting AGAINST the students while pretending like they are doing the former. In the first place, all of a sudden the AICTE has made a statement that would upset and disturb the students studying under Deemed Universities. And the UGC is the authority who has accredited us. While we have UGC what is the need for the AICTE. Why do we ever need two different boards while both are dealing with the (Universities) Education institutions. Why not have all the powers under one? Why have two different boards creating confusion and Chaos?
And leave all that aside, It all started with MGR,Bharat,SRM, Sathyabam………… It is to be dealt between the institution, UGC, AICTE and the students of those respective institutions. Why do the SFI interfere so seriously? Where the H*&K were they when the Queen maries issue, and when some other affiliated college students went on strike for they have no proper Labs, Restrooms, and lack of faculty??? Shouldn’t have the SO CALLED for the student SFI stood up and had organize all India strike then ????
And in the SRM issue where the students (just 9 of them, while the college strength ‘as they all complain’ is more than 1000) went on rampage at unearthly hours. Is that what STUDENTS DO?? I don’t believe students were involved in this. It seems like some Pre-planned conspiracy. And yes! may be these students were made to be there and first they said 9, now it is 8 of them arrested. I don’t wanna comment on that because I really don’t know what these guys did or whether they really wanted to do this all by themselves or forced to do from Non-institutional people.
First they created chaos, now violence…. VIOLENCE is not a tool- and after Gandhiji has proved, these Heroes don’t seem to realize or understand this.
And at that time where there were lots of APPLE IMAC (Wonder why our chairman got these expensive onesinstalled in the LABS for us-the students!!) computers missing and the incident did not seem to have ended, and Police was still investigating. There were only few non-teaching members and the securities present there. The news crew who arrived very early there have this big complain that they were not allowed to enter and capture the chaotic scene.( My BIG question is… while the whole thing is said to have happened because these boys got furious when they were not given an answer by the Authorities at 11 in night which is absurd, and they went on Rampage-not a planned one as they say. And all these happened only between the Authorities and the students. How did they ever come to know about it? And at that unearthly time how did the crew arrive very well ahead to a place that is not in the city limit? Who would have given the news to them while they-The students and the authorities were all FURIOUS and FRUSTRATED? If I were one of those students, I sure would not like to reveal my identity for good and the media coverage would definitely capture these budding professional to ruin their life. So it is for sure the students involved would not have given the information. And the college authorities , were blamed for not letting in the Crew- so sure they are also out of the list. And finally the Police who are also blamed for assaulting the crew would not have given the information. If not any of these people, then WHO? And don’t tell me the lame reason that the rumors would spread fast. AT 3 or 4 in the morning..common, definitely I myself wouldn’t do that mischief.
And recent development is the SFI giving the open invitation for all/any students to JUMP-IN and boycott classes. And the Arts college students are going on strike!! What do they appear here in this scene for??? Do you think it is for the good of the student community????Nay……..I definitely disagree.)
Moreover, we gather that the Bharathi dasan University is going ahead with their B.Tech.,courses, without the approval of THE AICTE and the supreme court has passed orders in favour of the university in this case. We also gather that The Anna University is running some of its course without the AICTE approval. If that be the case, why do they corner the deemed universities alone (Especially the media is concentrating only on SRM & SATHYABAMA). Why do the SFI raise slogans against the deemed universities alone and demand for the cancellation of the deemed university status? The chairman of the deemed universities have clearly stated that they have all infrastructure facilities according to the Norms prescribed by the UGC and the AICTE. On the whole it appears that some evil forces are working against the impressive production of intellectual forces in this part of the country & trying to bring down the national strength especially in respect of the IT. It would be more appreciated if the AICTE is made to function under the control of THE UGC.
One organization cannot make major achievements with two different bosses. There should not be two bosses for one poor servant. (I remember PAATI KADHAI-Oru kaatla rendu Raja irukka koodadhu KUZHANDHAIGALA! ). May be the student community in general does not understand the severe damage caused by this agitation to students. It is high time we realize this and act as students FOR THE students. The students should realize that this chaos is creating an alarming loss-Loss of time, Loss of money and Loss of progress. We hope all these problems will soon come to a decent ending. Media should realize their responsibility and act accordingly!
Sensational News alone is not the only NEWS.

There is a Dhyaneswar Vidyapeeth in Pune going about awarding degrees and what has UGC or AICTE done about it. Today many universities and colleges are offering MSc Computer Science for which AICTE has no say. Are standards to be maintained only if its BE or BTech Computer Science and no need for standards if the degree is named MSc? Society is obsessed with talking of standards only in Technical and Medical Education. Does not Science Arts curriculum require Standards to be maintained. After all let people realize that Society does not run only with Engineers, doctors and Pharmacists and requires all fields of knowledge. Let us talk of standards in education and not confine to only technical education

IIMB will have a Singapore Shanty 4700 Sqft, 3 hour working day and just one faculty to conduct world class Management Education. I wonder if the above meets so called AICTE specifications. On the contrary ISB which has world class facilities at Hyderabad has been questioned by AICTE about maintaining standards. Its time the AICTE joke is called off. AICTE you stand exposed in your standards.

The UGC and the AICTE “have no idea how to maintain standards”, says former IIT Madras director PV Indiresan. “Their culture is bureaucratic; they think that national accreditation will do. Even a simple observation of the number of responsible assessors needed to monitor 17,000 odd colleges will show that centralised accreditation is not the answer.”

In a recent survey in Businessworld, 64 per cent of the recruiters surveyed said AICTE accreditation is not important. One of the top business schools in India — the Indian School of Business (ISB) — does not have AICTE accreditation.

AICTE cannot take action against Deemed Universities: HC
The Madras High Court today ruled that the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) has the authority to inspect deemed universities but any action against them could be only taken by the University Grants Commission (UGC).

A Division Bench of the High Court comprising Chief Justice A P Shah and Justice Prabha Sridevan made the observation while quashing a public notice issued by the AICTE in February last, warning of stringent legal action against Deemed Universities which conducted new courses and programmes, without its prior approval.

Disposing of petitions filed by about 20 deemed universities in Tamil Nadu, the judges pointed out that according to a UGC communication, "the AICTE may visit the university department or constituent college and send its final report to the the UGC for final approval".

Noting that the AICTE team conducting any inspection of deemed universities had the representation of the UGC, the bench said if the UGC did not depute such a member within a reasonable time, the AICTE could proceed to conduct the inspection and forward its report to the UGC for action.

Referring to the notices sent by the AICTE and the UGC calling for information regarding the courses offered and those introduced after being declared Deemed Universities and whether UGC approval had been taken, the bench directed all universities to respond to the notices within four weeks if they had not done so.
