Aspirants seeking admissions to various technical courses, especially engineering, for the upcoming session 2015-16 have been warned by the Madhya Pradesh directorate of technical education (DTE) not to fall prey to touts and not to hand over their original documents to anyone.
The warning comes ahead of the start of the admission session in view of reports during previous years of students and parents getting duped in name of alternative admission process.
The DTE has warned the students and parents that there might be attempts to lure them to seek admission to particular colleges within or outside the state through offer of discount in fees, but they shouldn’t fall for any such false publicity.
The directorate has also urged the parents and students not to doubt on the quality of education or the efficacy of the admission process in technical education sector and not unnecessarily seek admission to colleges outside state.
Technical education director Ashish Dongre told HT, “MP is one of the best regulated states in context of technical education with AICTE approved institutes, transparent online admission process, fixed regulated fees structure and so on. There is no cause for any doubt or to unnecessarily look for options outside state.”
The DTE has come out with a list of do’s and don’ts for the students and parents.
The emphasis is on the point that admissions to all technical courses, including engineering, are done through the online off-campus counselling procedure conducted by the directorate.
This is a centralised online procedure wherein all aspirants have to register and go through a particular process to get seat allocations in courses of their choice on basis of merit.
Candidates can participate in the process from their computers or even android-based smart phones — a facility introduced this year.
“There is no admission outside this official process. Aspirants should ignore the false publicity regarding direct admissions and not get involved in any such activity,” Dongre said.
The directorate has also strongly warned the students against handing over of any of their original documents (like mark sheets, caste certificates, school leaving certificate etc) to any individual or agency.
Even under the online centralised counselling process of the DTE, the students are only supposed to submit photocopies of their documents and get them verified by showing the original documents (at the designated government help centres).
The candidates can later take back their original documents.
