Hyderabad: Starting this year, junior private colleges could be affiliated for three or five years at a time.

To this end, the Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education (TS BIE) has sent a proposal to the state government for a nod.

According to the proposal, private junior colleges with their own buildings can benefit from a membership of three or five years. Currently, upon receipt of applications from private college directors, the Council grants affiliation for one year only.

“A three- or five-year membership has been proposed for directors of private colleges that have their own buildings. Once the government gives its approval, it will be implemented for this year,” an official said.

Branches wishing to affiliate must have their own building or building lease agreement in addition to FDRs, building sanitation and structural soundness certificates, and fire department no-objection certificate.

“Granting affiliation for three or five years will be helpful and relieve college managements as they do not need to obtain relevant certificates from different departments every year,” said Gowri Satish, President of Telangana. Private Junior College Management Association.

The TS BIE which had issued a call for applications for an Affiliate Grant received 1,408 applications from 1,699 private colleges across the state for the 2022-23 academic year.

Private junior colleges offering general and vocational courses can submit the application form for affiliation with a late fee of Rs.10,000, Rs.15,000 and Rs.20,000 till May 10, 17 and 24 respectively.
