Telangana Degree Online Admissions 2016
This is the first time that the Telangana Government has decided to conduct online admission for degree courses on the lines of professional courses. Candidates who have passed Intermediate examination from Board of Intermediate Education, Telangana or any equivalent recognised examination from other boards and states are eligible to apply.
Students can submit single application for all the colleges under one university and give options accordingly. They can give combination of as many choices of courses and colleges within a university. For example, Osmania University has more than 430 affiliated colleges and students can give options for every course in all the colleges or a few courses in a few colleges of their choice.
“The advantage is students will have to pay only the Government fixed fee for all the colleges and private colleges cannot collect additional fee,” said Prof. Suresh Kumar, Registrar of Osmania University.
Candidates can also apply for the colleges of other universities like Kakatiya University, Warangal; Satavahana University, Karimnagar; Telangana University, Nizamabad; Palamuru University, Mahabubnagar and Mahatma Gandhi University, Nalgonda using the same registration. However, they have to pay Rs. 100 each for every university separately.
“This can be done sitting at home and students can save lot of money as they are spared from buying admission forms from each college,” said T. Papi Reddy, Chairman of Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE). The single application will be enough for all constituent and affiliated colleges, including government, autonomous, aided and private colleges.
Prof. Suresh Kumar said that students need to enter their Aadhaar card details and all their registered details will automatically pop up and guide the students to fill the form.
“The data will remain for ever and will be used for future purposes,” he said. However, the online admission system is being opposed by several private colleges who argue that it was unfair to tag them with Government colleges or colleges in rural areas.
“We provide better facilities, pay higher rents in cities and also pay the teachers well to maintain quality. This is not possible with the Government’s fixed fee policy,” said correspondent of a college arguing that it will be detrimental to the growth of Hyderabad as an education hub and will drive away people from investing in good undergraduate colleges.
