Telangana Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari on Friday said that the state government would register criminal cases against corporate and private colleges where cases of student suicides and harassment had been reported.
During Question Hour in the Legislative Council, several members, expressing concern over the spate of suicides, sought a solution to the malaise and also to all the cases of harassment of students as well as parents by the colleges.
Replying to this, the minister conceded that there was a problem. "Teams of officials have conducted raids on several corporate and private colleges, and found that the managements were putting unnecessary academic pressure on the students. We have served show-cause notices to as many as 194 colleges, and warned them to mend their ways and create conducive atmospheres on their campuses," he said.
Kadiam also said that criminal cases would be filed and recognitions cancelled for all such colleges that did not follow the stipulated norms.
As cancellation of the registrations of errant colleges mid-term would affect the students adversely, the government would bring to book these colleges from the next academic year, the Deputy CM added.
