Telangana to Conduct Final Year Exams According to UGC, AICTE Guidelines. Telangana government on Thursday decided to conduct examinations for a degree, postgraduate degree and engineering final year students as per the guidelines of the University Grants Commission (UGC) and All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).
Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao announced at a meeting with senior officials that the decision was taken to uphold academic sanctity.
Statement from the Chief Minister’s Office:
Other students will be promoted to the next class without any examination.
He was of the opinion that by improving the working of government educational institutions, by making them impart higher standard education, the exploitation being done in the name of education can be controlled.
Stating that after the formation of Telangana state, the government solved several problems including electricity, drinking water, irrigation water, he said:
“Agriculture sector is settling down. There are no lands grabbing incidents. Playing cards clubs are closed down. Illicit liquor production and sale is stopped. Similarly, we have solved many problems. Now we will focus on revamping the Revenue Department and strengthening the education sector.”
“The government will soon make the final decision on when schools in the state should open, how teaching should take place and other related issues, after examining the Centre’s guidelines, and methods adopted by other states.”
