norms prescribed by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE),
students and parents of Telangana widely welcomed.
In the renewal list
of affiliated colleges issued on Saturday, as many as 174 private engineering
colleges out of the 315 existing colleges in Telangana region. Even the number
of eligible private pharmacy Colleges came down to a mere 61 from 146 in the

pharmacy colleges under Telangana region are not eligible this year for intake
of students for courses being offered by them.

not allowed to take part in the Eamcet counselling in Telangana, they are
staring at zero admissions this year.
