Hinjawadi, 13th June 2023: Four students at the International Institute of Information Technology (I2IT) in Hinjawadi are facing an uncertain future as the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has refused to release their eligible numbers (ENs).

The institute listed their admissions under the management quota instead of the Centralized Admission Process (CAP), despite the students having enrolled through CAP. As a result, the students cannot fill out the examination form for the second semester, and their admission may be automatically cancelled. Concerns over academic loss have left the students and their parents worried.

I2IT, affiliated with the Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU), offers undergraduate courses in Computer Engineering, Information Technology, and Electronics and Telecommunication. Admissions to these courses are conducted through the CAP process and in-house management quota.
Parents of the affected students expressed their concerns, noting that their children had successfully completed the first semester without any issues. However, they now face hurdles due to the lack of ENs required for the second semester examination form. Despite repeated meetings with college officials, they have not received a satisfactory response. The parents are seeking assistance, as they suspect irregularities in the admission process.

A complainant, requesting anonymity, stated that the institute violated AICTE rules by categorizing CAP students as management quota students, leading to the EN issue. He emphasized that while ENs were not required for the first-semester examination conducted at the institute level, they are essential for the second and third semesters. Failure to obtain ENs would prohibit students from attempting further exams. The complainant has filed a complaint with the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) and AICTE, urging the cancellation of the institute’s approval for fraudulent practices.

Madhuri Reddy, the faculty member in charge of admissions, claimed that the issue was not under her jurisdiction and that she was unaware of the situation. Principal Vaishali Patil stated that there was no problem with the ENs but refused to disclose further details, emphasizing that the institute would resolve the issue internally through discussions with parents.

The affected students and their families are left in limbo, with uncertainty surrounding their academic careers. The AICTE and DTE have been urged to investigate the matter and take appropriate action to address the students’ plight.
