We are students of the said college, the college had grant at the time of our admission, i.e. the year 2006-2009 and even before that. After which the grant was abruptly withdrawn. The information we got from the council was that our college does not follow the bare minimum standards as prescribed by the 'council' as per the 'The Architects Act.' There is a procedure of audit after which the council has right to take such action, but no such audit took place. Its a plane politics at the managerial level for which our college's registration was withdrawn. Whatever, the case maybe, we are students, we need our right for registration. Without the registration we would not be allowed to practice architecture. Our's is not the only college which has such an issue, each college is trying their way, I opted for this option, please, please, please support us to get our right for registration after completing our five year degree course.

TECHNICAL DETAILS:

'The Council as a body has a mere rights to represent to the appropriate Governments (firstly the State Government and then the Central Government) about the standards of Architectural Education' as per the information of Ministry of Human Resource Development, Department of Higher Education, website link dated August 14, 2013 is http://mhrd.gov.in/coa_hindi.

       But, as per the letter issued by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, issued at New Delhi, dated June 25, 2013 and addressed to the Council of Architecture, Ref No: F. No. 4-7/2009 -TS.VI, clearly states that they do not find any specific reason for the Council's recommendation to de-recognise the B.Arch degree awarded by the said college.

           Inspite of this, The Council, on July 1, 2013 issued a public notice in which they further mention that 'they have put the said institute on zero admission for non compliance with the minimum standards and if any student takes admission in this institution they would be doing that on their own risk.'

      Hello, thanks a lot people for your great support so far. Just to update with you, Central Govt has issued letters to Council of Architecture (COA) to withdraw the public notices that they issued during the period of admission, and also asked them to grant registration to our college. But COA has not responded so far, the status on their website still remains the same. We need to continue with the good work, please continue to sign and share the petition for a chance to hit the target sooner.

      I am an architecture student myself. It is an injustice to the students that their lives are affected by ego clashes and politics not related to them from any source, whatsoever.
