TS degree admissions (DOST): TSCHE directs degree colleges to stop admissions

The Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE) has warned all the private degree colleges in Telangana against making degree admissions for the academic year 2020-21.

In a press release issued on Thursday, August 6, 2020, , the TSCHE said council/universities have not issued any admissions notification for admitting students into respective degree courses for the academic year 2020-21.

The TSCHE has been receiving complaints from parents and student organisations that some private degree colleges in Hyderabad were making admissions and collecting huge fee from the candidates, which was illegal, it said.

It directed all the private degree colleges in the State under DOST/Non-DOST system to follow the academic schedule which will be issued by the universities/TSCHE.

If any further complaints are received against the private degree colleges, the government/TSCHE will view the issue seriously and initiate steps to cancel the affiliation, it added.
