    Students from Guru Nanak and Sreenidhi Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) who claim to have university status are not eligible to apply for postgraduate courses or government jobs in Telangana. These students have been awarded degrees with the seal of ‘Guru Nanak University” and “Shreenidhi University”, but are not recognized by state universities such as Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad (JNTU-H), Osmania, Kakatiya and others. Even applying for a clerk job in the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), water board, RTC and other quasi-government organizations is not possible for these students. This is because they do not possess a ‘recognized degree’ which is required as per the rules to apply for jobs.

    A case precedent was cited where a prominent private university admitted students in B.Tech courses in more than 15 sections in a single academic year, violating the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) norms. Students who were awarded degrees from this private university were found to be ineligible for postgraduate courses in JNTU-H and its affiliated colleges under the management quotas. Similar cases were found in the case of some applying for MBA courses. These candidates were rejected as being AICTE and UGC recognized Higher Educational Institutions. Top officials from the university had approached the Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE) and the state education department (SED) to raise objections, but were told not to make an issue out of it after committing gross violations of AICTE norms. The private university officials were warned against dragging it as it might result in irreparable loss to the future of those students who were admitted in violation of the AICTE norms and awarded degrees.
