Tech student hangs himself in Uttar Pradesh

Greater Noida (Uttar Pradesh): A first-year B.Tech student of a private engineering college, upset over a family dispute, hanged himself from the ceiling fan of his room in the Kasna area here, police said.

Vivek Patel, a student of IILM college in Knowledge Park area, committed suicide in his house on Tuesday afternoon, said Rahul Kumar, Circle Officer-I of Greater Noida.

Vivek was from Jalaun district in Uttar Pradesh and was staying with his relatives in the NTPC Colony.

His uncle Avinash Patel is a faculty member in his college and he was in the institute when the incident came to light. His aunt was, however, at home.

Around 12 noon, Vivek’s aunt called him several times but got no response. He was in his room. When she opened his room’s door to find out why he was not responding to the calls, she found him hanging from the ceiling fan.She called her neighbours and informed Avinash about the incident.

‘Vivek was said to be under depression for the last few days over some family property dispute. We have seized his body and sent it for post-mortem examination. Investigations are on,’ the circle officer said.

Pvt colleges move Delhi HC against AICTE’s approval norms

PUNE: Private unaided professional institutions have moved the Delhi high court against the All India Council for Technical Education’s (AICTE) latest norms for approval of new institutions or renewal of the existing ones for academic year (AY) 2011-12. The institutions have dubbed the norms as arbitrary, illegal, illogical and in contravention of various Supreme Court judgements.
Some of the key norms that are under fire from the institutions relate to a “drastic” increase in the deposit money to be kept with the AICTE with a 10-year lock-in period for starting an engineering college, hike in processing fee under various heads, reduction in NRI admission quota from 15% to 5%, stringent punitive measures against non-compliance of refund in case of cancellation of admission, maintenance of faculty-student ratio, provision of 10 laboratories per course and constitution of board of governors by the institutions and providing for representation of two AICTE nominees.
The AICTE had issued the new approval norms on December 10, 2010, for establishment of new technical institutions, extension of new courses, change in student intake capacity, creation of supernumerary quota i.e. number of seats over and above the sanctioned student intake for a given course at an institution and renewal of approval, etc. The new norms in the form of an ‘Approval Process Handbook 2011-12′ were in supersession of the approval norms issued on January 15, 2010.
The Federation of Associations of Managements of Unaided Professional Educational Institutions, which is the apex body of private unaided professional colleges in the country, has said that several of the new approval norms are contradictory to the apex court rulings in landmark cases such as the TMA Pai Foundation as well as the Islamic Academy of Education vs State of Karnataka; and the P A Inamdar vs State of Maharashtra, which are quite clear about the private institution’s rights to fees and admissions. “The norms are an encroachment upon these rights,” the federation has said.
“The federation filed a writ petition (No. 690 of 2011) last week in the Delhi high court after representatives of its member-associations unanimously resolved for legally contesting the AICTE norms at a meeting held in Delhi on February 14,” R P Joshi, vice-president, Association of the Managements of Unaided Engineering Colleges (AMUEC) in Maharashtra, told TOI on Wednesday. The AMUEC controls 177 private unaided engineering colleges in the state while the federation involves similar associations from key states such as Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, West Bengal, Orissa and Gujarat, among others.
Joshi said, “The federation had asked all its member associations to submit their views on the new approval norms. We (AMUEC) did so by expressing our concern over provisions like the hike in fixed deposit to be kept with the AICTE from the existing Rs 35 lakh to Rs 90 lakh for a 10-year period.” He said, “The norms provide that the deposit money will be refunded at the end of 10 years, but the AICTE will retain the interest earned on the same.”
“Similarly, the norms relating to maintenance of 100% faculty is impractical, considering the acute shortage of faculty faced by engineering colleges across the country,” said Joshi. “The Rama Rao committee, which was appointed by AICTE itself in the past, has recognised the faculty problem in its report,” he added.
The litigation is likely to have a bearing on the AICTE’s schedule for approval of new professional institutions, including engineering colleges. The last date for filing of pleas with the AICTE is February 28. The federation moved the petition on February 15 seeking the court’s intervention on the grounds that the AICTE may not accept their applications for not having fulfilled the new norms.
On February 18, the Delhi high court’s single-judge bench of justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw, which heard the petition, ruled that the institutions can file their applications by the stipulated date subject to further orders in the writ petition. The bench also allowed the petitioner’s plea to file a rejoinder to the counter-affidavit filed by the AICTE in relation to the petition. The case has since been posted for the next hearing on March 4.DONE, ms

TCS: No test for engg grads with 70%; Jobs in TCS

MUMBAI: In a move to fast-track recruitment, IT firm TCS has announced that fresh engineering graduates with a good academic record can directly appear for interviews, skipping the entrance test that other applicants have to take.
Engineering students that have consistently scored over 70 per cent throughout their academic career can “leapfrog” directly to the interview stage, it said in a release.
The system is being implemented from the current hiring season in which TCS plans to make offers to a total of 37,000 fresh graduates. It is being introduced as a pilot project and many pass-outs are already taking advantage of it, a TCS spokesperson said.
Based on the performance of fresh graduates hired earlier, the company has graded engineering colleges in the country and only students that fall in A, A+ and B category institutions can avail of the scheme, the release said.
“The written test is more to check your aptitude and we think the academic consistency takes care of it,” the spokesperson said. The company has already made offers to 23,500 graduates from 171 colleges in the current hiring season. Many of them that have a good academic record did not sit for the written test, the spokesperson added.

GBTU employees stir continues

LUCKNOW: The employees of Gautam Buddh Technical University ( GBTU) continued their strike even on Tuesday, but this time outside the main gate of Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET). The employees on Tuesday were not allowed to enter the main university premises, where they were on strike since December 13. Therefore, they chose to stand outside and continued boycotting the work.
The employees are of the view that their services should be regularised, and they will go to any extent to get their demands met. To recap, the employees were detained on Monday for disturbing peace in the university premises and were released later in the evening.

State employee unions join hands with GBTU protestors

LUCKNOW: Employees of the Gautam Buddh Technical University continued their strike on Monday too, after being not allowed to enter the university’s gate since past one week. The state employees union and the fourth class employees union joined hands with the  GBTU Staff Association on Monday. They warned that if the employees demands are not met, they will hit the streets and protest. Employees of GBTU have been protesting since December 13 demanding regularisation of their services.

On the contrary, the university administration has decided to increase nearly 8-25 per cent of the total wages given to the employees. The exact per cent will be decided on the experience of the employees in the university. But the employees have been adamant on either regularising their services or provide them the status as that of state employees.

The state employees’ union was of the view that if the university doesn’t agree the demands of the university employees, they will take up the matter in a meeting scheduled on January 28.

GBTU employees have to take test

LUCKNOW: The Executive Council (EC) meeting of Gautam Buddh Technical University ( GBTU), on Saturday, decided that the university employees would have to participate in the selection process and if they qualify, they will be absorbed. The information was given by university registrar, US Tomer.

A decision to this effect was taken by the EC meeting held on January 7. Contradicting the same, the university employees claim that they have been serving the university since its inception, and so should be selected directly. It was also ruled out that the employees will be given preferences in the higher institutions and universities for their services rendered especially that of technical universities.

The university administration has constantly given warnings to its employees, who are demanding regularisation of their services, but the protesting employees stuck to their point and could not be pursued to resume services.

More than 100 university employees are on strike since December 13. Before this, in April last, the employees went on a strike demanding their regularisation and payment, as per the recommendations of the sixth pay commission. The strike ended with talks at a higher level.

Regarding the matter of senior scale of IET employees, which was pending, the EC approved the same. All the decisions were taken in the presence of principal secretary technical education, Prof Vrinda Swaroop; principal secretary, (finance), BS Bhullar; director IIT-Kanpur, Prof SG Dhande; director IIT-Roorkee, Prof SC Saxena; UPTU V-C, Prof Kripa Shanker, university registrar, US Tomer and others.

Top Engineering Colleges In Uttar Pradesh (UP)

After arguing on the authenticity of India today and Times of India ranking of engineering colleges it was really necessary to give students an alternative ranking based on some absolute values on which everyone can agree. There are always few exceptions who don’t want to agree on anything, I am leaving out that sample. This list would definitely helpful for Non GATE M.Tech admissions and students looking for B.Tech admissions.
Most of the engineering colleges in UP are affiliated to UPTU now GBTU (Gautam Buddh Technical university). GBTU conducts a common admission test (SEE) on state level for admission into Engineering courses in affiliated and private colleges. I considered GBTU-SEE opening and closing ranks of 2009 for making a list of top engineering colleges in UP. Top ten colleges were easy to decide because the trend was very clear after that it was really difficult to compare colleges.
I considered Computer Science and Electronics and Communication Engineering opening and closing ranks ranking Engineering colleges. Incase of conflict we also considered Electrical Engineering opening and closing ranks. The reason for considering CSE and ECE is that these branches are found in almost all engineering colleges.
