Rajkot engg college Atmiya Institute of Technology and Science can’t admit students

Perfect Storm Blueprint (new From Potpiegirl & David Bocock >The state education department has issued a ‘no admission’ notice for an engineering college in Rajkot. The notice was sent to the Joint Admission Committee for Professional Courses (JACPC) late on Friday. This will create a problem ahead of admission to engineering courses as the Sarvoday Kelavani Samaj (SKS)-run Atmiya Institute of Technology and Science has 480 seats.

This is not the first time that SKS, a prestigious educational trust in Saurashtra, has been mired in a controversy. In February, the Rajkot collector took over the educational trust for breach in its trust deed. Sources said, “The trust was given a plot on Kalawad road for religious purpose. Today, however, the plot houses the Vidya Vihar High School, School of Science, Virani Art, Science and Computer Science College and AITS.” More »
