Hyderabad: The Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education (TSBIE), in a notice on 17 February, said intermediate admissions made in advance will not be valid. It also asked parents to wait for the list of affiliated colleges which will be released by the board before enrolling their children in intermediate colleges.
Earlier, students from the Student Federation of India (SFI) had given a representation that several parents are being approached by the Sri Chaitanya and Narayana institutions for admissions and these staffs are visiting the homes of students who are in Class X. Parents are being lured to take admissions in advance so that they can get "attractive discounts, they said.
The same issue has come to the notice of the board through various media reports as well, following which, the board said, “It has come to the notice of the board that some of the private junior college managements are taking the service of their representatives and they are approaching parents for advance registration of students in intermediate first year, which is against the norms of the board.”
The notice further said, “All managements of private junior colleges in the state are hereby informed that no college should make admissions for the academic year 2020-21 before the TSBIE announcement on the admission or before the academic year begins. Admissions made well in advance would not be valid and stringent action would be initiated against erring management.”
The board also requested the parents not to take admission in the colleges before the list of affiliated junior colleges is published by the TSBIE and to enquire and confirm whether the college in which they wish to take admission has an affiliation for the academic year 2020-21.
The admission notification from the TSBIE is expected to be released in May.
