Chennai: The State Higher Education Department’s initiative to take online the entire admission process for entry into engineering courses will affect the rural students in the State, DMK working president M. K. Stalin has claimed. The move, he said, will pose hardship to rural students and those who studied in Tamil medium.

Recently, the State Higher Education Department launched the online admission process for B.E. / B.Tech courses in nearly 580 engineering colleges across Tamil Nadu for the academic year 2018-19. This makes a detour from the admission in the past that had been based on a single window counselling system conducted centrally at the Anna University. Prior to 2009, the counselling sessions were conducted in a distributed manner at Chennai, Coimbatore, Madurai and Tiruchy.

 

He claimed that the new procedure, suddenly introduced after a new Vice Chancellor from Karnataka took charge at the Anna University, would only cause greater confusion among the rural and poor students.
