Joint action committee demands special allocations in Budget for non-professional colleges

Telangana Deputy Chief Minister and Minister for Education, Kadiyam Srihari, met representatives of private degree and post graduate inter colleges, and joint action committee, at the Secretariat on Monday. JAC leaders brought their problems to notice of the Deputy Chief Minister. They told the minister that the government is spending around Rs. 400 crore for fee reimbursement to non-professional degree students and those pursuing post-graduation courses in private sector. They requested Srihari to release non-professional colleges under a special scheme. They appealed him to allot special budget for the same. Deputy CM Srihari responded positively to their requests. The Deputy CM was interacting with the leaders during a review meeting. The meeting came following an impasse between the government and educational institutions over conduct of tenth, intermediate and degree examination as the joint action committee of management of educational institutions has agreed to extend full cooperation in conducting examinations.
