Polytechnic colleges see low enrolment

Share This

Chandigarh, December 6

Of the 30,000 seats in private polytechnic colleges, only 3,000 have been filled so far.

Flagging the issue, the Punjab Unaided Colleges’ Association today said due to the Covid pandemic and the ongoing farmers’ agitation, the admission process in polytechnic colleges had been affected badly.

Dr Anshu Kataria, president, PUCA, said the youth, along with farmers from the states of Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, were on protest for two months in their respective states and now protesting at the Delhi border.

Meanwhile, the Federation of Self-Financing Technical Institution of India and PUCA have urged the government to implement AICTE’s recent notification.

As per the notification issued on December 3, 2020, the last date of admission to engineering courses (diploma and diploma lateral entry) has been extended up to December 31, 2020, in some states where admission and counselling has not been started due to Covid. — TNS
