Valley students’ enrolment in state colleges sees a dip


Valley students’ enrolment in state colleges sees a dip

Tribune News Service

Jalandhar, August 12

In the wake of the arrest of two Kashmiri students of St Soldier College here last year in connection with the Maqsudan police station blast case, the fear of a lesser number of admissions of Kashmiri students came true this year. Approximately, a drop of around 100 students was recorded in institutions that are most preferred by Valley students. Communication gap due to the current unrest in the Valley has further impacted the admissions under the All-India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) courses.

Manhar Arora, principle, St Soldier College, said, “With only 115 registrations, the admission rate of Valley students has come down in around 30 institutions. Approximately, a drop of around 100 students from Kashmir has been witnessed this year in various colleges. While 60 students have taken admissions in B.Tech, 45 have completed their admission process for AICTE courses. Nearly 10-15 students, who had also filled application forms for AICT courses, are yet to finish the admission process and due to communication channels being blacked out from the the past eight days, they couldn’t contact the students”.

At the CT Group of Institutions, a drop of nearly 100 students was recorded this year, said Manbir Singh, managing director of the group. “Every year we receive around 300-350 students from Kashmir. Even after the tense situations, I was expecting that we will receive the same number of students in the current academic year. However, until now only 200 students have taken admission. Also, Valley students are likely to join college after Eid, hence we are still hoping that the admissions will reach up to 300,” he added. While 168 students had taken admissions in various courses last year on the Shahpur campus of the CT Institute of Engineering Management and Technology, only 110 students have been enrolled this year.
