Govt forms committee to study possibility of CET
Hyderabad: The government on Saturday set up a
committee of Vice Chancellors to study Common Entrance Test
for admission into professional courses and optimum
utilisation of the infrastructure in universities.
HRD Minister Kapil Sibal constituted the committee,
consisting of seven Vice Chancellors, at a meeting here. The
committee would also suggest ways for migration of students
from one university to another.
The government is considering holding a national-level
entrance test for admission into courses like medicine and
engineering, commerce and economics. The committee will
examine the possibility of such tests and suggests modalities.
Sibal, who presided the meeting of Vice Chancellors of
CUs at Hyderabad Central University, said the infrastructure
in the existing universities remain unutilised after the class
Such facilities could be put to use for education,
training and skill-development and also courses can be started
under public-private-partnership to maximise the use of assets
by the institutes, Sibal said.
If some universities teach only morning classes in some
subjects, the assets of the university are lying waste for
rest of the time. So universities should devise their own plan
to utilise the assets to the maximum and they can use the
money for university development, he said.
The minister said the committee will meet every four
months to clear bottleneck if any. The idea is to give greater
autonomy to the universities, he told reporters.
