HC notice to govt engineering colleges on seat hike
The Orissa High Court issued notices to at least six government engineering colleges in the state, including Vir Surendra Sai University of Technology (VSSUT), on Tuesday to explain how they would increase the number of seats in certain courses in the current academic session without getting due approval from AICTE.

A division bench of Justices Indrajit Mahanti and D P Choudhury issued notices to the institutions while adjudicating over a petition filed by Odisha Private Engineering Colleges Association (PECA).

The petitioner had challenged the decision of the government institutions to increase their seats by over 600 from this year without prior approval of AICTE.

The cases would be heard again on July 6.
