No proper mechanism in place to monitor admission violations

Academicians are of the opinion that if admission guidelines are followed properly there won't be any need for a single window system to ensure a fair admission process.
While admission guidelines are issued every year by the DCE, academicians say, self-financing colleges are the main violators of the guidelines, be it in the cost of application, rules of reservation, publishing rank list or admission to self-financing courses before aided courses.

As per Clause 10, the last date for receipt of application forms should be fixed as the 10th working day after the publication of Plus Two results. On most occasions, admission guidelines are issued a day before Class 12 results which would reach the colleges after 3-4 days. "But many aided colleges start giving admissions on first-come-first-served basis prior to the results, taking shelter under the fact that admission guidelines have been issued," says former president of AUT, K Pandiyan.
"Among the serious breach is the admission to self-financing courses in aided colleges which gets over before admissions to aided courses," says state general secretary of AUT, N Settu, adding that there has been a rampant violation in this area and one can find that all evening college courses, which are money-spinning courses, are forcibly filled up first by managements. Thus, even the meritorious and creamy students are forced to pay hefty sums and join these courses, he says.
"Not a single private college has been booked under the Prohibition of Collection of Capitation Fee (Educational Institutions) Act 1992 though the excess/exorbitant collection of fee is rampant," recalls AUT vice-president N Pasupathy.
It is also to be noted that there is no uniform fee structure for self-financing colleges which have multifarious courses, unlike professional colleges or even matriculation schools. With the result, self-financing colleges fix their own fee, like for a BCom degree course in the heart of city, it is around Rs 25,000 while in the suburbs it is around Rs 10,000. There is no proper mechanism to monitor the violations that result in irregularities that eventually affect the students, adds Pasupathy.
