govts move to scrap diploma courses pvt colleges file plea in punjab and haryana hc

GURGAON: Private colleges, under the banner of the All India Federation of Self-Financing Colleges, have challenged the state government’s decision to discontinue diploma courses in elementary education at 395 institutes in Punjab and Haryana high court.
“We have challenged the government’s decision to discontinue the diploma courses in the court and the first hearing was conducted on Thursday. The government did not respond to the queries and has sought time. The next hearing has been scheduled on Monday and we are hopeful that the decision will be struck down,” the federation’s president Satish Kohla said.
The move comes after the National Council for Teachers Education (NCTE) rolled back its decision to withdraw the recognition of the around 400 teacher education institutions.
Last week, TOI reported that the council decided to serve a show-cause notice and allow a 15-day window for the colleges to present their case. The rollback did not quell the concerns of colleges as the NCTE has sought a “valid reason” to not initiate any action regarding the state’s decision to discontinue the two-year courses from the academic session 2023-24.
