Odisha students reluctant towards tech education

The reluctance of Odisha students towards technical education has created panic among the fraternity of technical education in the state as more than 50 per cent of the seats have remained vacant in several technical institutions of Odisha.

According to the Odisha Private Engineering College Association (OPECA), umbrella body of the private technical institutes of the State, more than 50 percent seats are vacant. There are several reasons behind it. One of the major reasons is that students are not interested to obtain technical education.

Among other reasons, many economists blame the slow progress of industrialisation in the state. According to the economist, Santosh Kumar Mahapatra, the government is fully aware why the students in Odisha are not interested in technical education. The government has not taken any proper step for the industrialisation.

The OPECA, however, differs in the opinion. This body claims that poor enrollment of students in engineering colleges is not due to lack of industrialisation. It is due to (Regulation of Admission of fixation of Fee) Act, 2007, which should be amended, OPECA says.

With its introduction, the Act has brought unprecedented problems since it has no clear-cut admission guidelines, neither for NRI seats nor for general vacant seats, says Binod Das, secretary of OPECA. Ten years ago, the demand for admission in technical institutions exceeded the number of seats but for the last five year, the trend has reversed.

The association claims to have submitted various suggestions before the Act Amendment Committee for seat-sharing and fee fixation in the past, but nothing have been accepted so far. Similarly, the guidelines of other states too were presented before the State Government but in vain.

Whatever the reason, the situation apprehends that Odisha will not see vast number of engineers in another 5 years.
