The two Intermediate Corporate Colleges of the state-Narayana and Sri Chaitanya received a jolt from the Telangana government on Monday. The state government has asked the secretary of the intermediate board to issue notices to the two errant colleges for violating norms of the board and take necessary action against both of them. It has also asked the board secretary to take necessary steps for recovering Rs.1.93 crore fine from the two colleges which was slapped on them for violation of the norms. The violations of various rules by the two errant colleges came to light following a thorough investigation by Vigilance and Enforcement Department of the state.
Meanwhile, Deputy Chief Minister of the state Kadiyam Srihari held a meeting with the officials of the education department on the issue. He issued instructions to the officials to take all necessary steps to prevent such violations by the colleges in future. He said that the violations of the two colleges had not only brought bad name to the state but also diluted the standards of education. He opined that the teaching methods adopted by the two colleges had had a very bad effect on the psyche of the students resulting in their poor performance in premier institutes like IITs of the country. He said that the state government was in no mood to tolerate such incidents any more as it has already resolved to reform the education system in the state.
