Before starting counselling, status of all private Engineering college is to be updated in the anna university website. This is due to the order given by high court.
In Tamilnadu As of the year 2012 totally 521 Engineering colleges were present. In these colleges more than 2 lakh students are joining every year through single window counseling.
But Some Engineering colleges are not fulfilling rules and regulations of AICTE & Anna university also having poor facilities. Students who are selecting these institutions are mostly from middle class family and who studied from govt schools. They are joining without knowing status of institution.
Colleges with similar names
In Tamilnadu 51 colleges are running under similar names so students are getting confusion to differentiate these colleges and to know which college is better. In order to overcome this situation university going to display the colleges with similar names and logos online in separate because of the government order.
High court order:
High court ordered Anna University to display status and pass percentage of all engineering institutions coming under the varsity including govt institutions within two weeks of the order, links to declare the colleges status are tndte.com and annauniv.edu/tnea2014. This step was taken due to the public petition filed by T.Boopalasamy.
Details may be updated before counseling so students should check colleges status before counseling and they are advised to skip colleges which shown poor performance and colleges with inadequate infrastructure.
