Anna University losing 2 M.Tech. courses

Published by : Step in college

Anna University: Admission to 2 centrally funded M Tech programs at Anna University was canceled this year following the insistence of the Centre that the college follows just 49.5 percent reservation and never the 69 percent quota coverage of state authorities in admitting college students. The division of biotechnology-supported programs of the Union authorities of the M Tech Biotechnology and M Tech Computational Biology programs offers Rs 12,000 and Rs 12,500, respectively, to a total of 45 college students as a stipend. As the central government reservation rules were not applicable to the government of Tamil Nadu, for the academic year 2020-21, Anna University was unable to proceed with admission to the DBT-supported MTech Biotechnology and MTech Computational Biology programs," the college launched on its website on Saturday."

Anna University losing 2 M.Tech. courses

University offered M.tech: The decision left many aspirants heartbroken because the demand for these programs grew after the pandemic of Covid-19. Since 1985, the MTech Biotechnology course at Anna University has been offered and MTech Computational Biology has been on from 2014-15. Tamil Nadu Common Entrance Test and Graduate Aptitude Test in Biotechnology (GAT-B) qualified students said they had found themselves stranded and would have to waste one tutorial year.

The parent responded: "In the GAT-B examination, my daughter stands in the top 100. We are saddened by the university's decision. Even without any stipend, they should accept students, as there is a huge demand for these courses,' said a Chennai mother or parent.

"Okay Muthukumaran, whose daughter was ready for admission to MTech biotechnology, stated, "Tamil Nadu required 69% reservation, while the Center insisted on 49.5% reservation. Anna University has been postponing admissions to these two courses for the last three months because of the controversy over quota policy. In the meantime, MTech biotechnology admissions in other institutions have been overtaken.

The admissions for these two programs were carried out in every part of the Indian stage until the final year. Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi used to conduct a Combined Entrance Exam for Biotechnology (JNU CEEB) for the admission of MTech biotechnology college students, while Pondicherry University used to conduct a computer biology course for all entrants to India.

Nonetheless, the Regional Center for Biotechnology in Faridabad took over the responsibility of performing each doorway examination this year and the identification of the examination was further changed as a Graduate Aptitude Test in Biotechnology (GAT-B). The RCB introduced that the admissions should be carried out by the respective establishments instead of carrying out and enter to take a look at and admissions.

DBT introduced a 49.5 percent reservation in all Indian admissions until the final year, as it is a central government-sponsored course. Anna University requested clarity on the reservation coverage to be implemented in admissions to those two programs from state governments. The state government ordered the university to follow a 69 percent reservation, which was not agreed to by DBT, which is financing these programs. We have no other choice but to cancel admissions to the two famous courses,' said an Anna University official.

The college official claimed that the All India Council for Technical Education would not give permission to expand consumption in the midst of a tutorial year when asked whether or not the college could have adopted 69 percent reservation by increasing consumption, and the school members will also not be appropriate.
