At the very onset, we, the members of the public, like to express our gratitude to the Government of India as well as to you for issuance of the Gazette Notification No 295 dtd 29.08.2018 regularising the Modular System of Technical Education as provided by Gani Khan Chowdhury Institute of Engineering & Technology, Malda, West Bengal.
The said notification clearly shows that since the inception of the said institute, there were lacunas in every sphere which the notification intended to resolve. Certainly the Modular System gained its sanctity and achieved a lawful status after 8 years of inception. Better late than never. But at the very same time, the said notification failed to resolve the problems of students who have passed from the institute in the mean time all the three modules.
The notification did not empower the institute itself or any other appropriate authority on issuing of valid certificates to the eligible students in any of the three modules. As the Institute is not accorded with the status of Autonomous Educational Institute being a Deemed to be University, naturally any certificate of Degree issued by the institute shall have no lawful sanctity.
On the other hand, no other University including the Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of West Bengal which has accorded affiliation to the institute in the month of June, 2018 approves modular system of technical education. Naturally, it will not be possible for any of them to issue valid certificates under modular system.
This lacuna can be easily resolved by authorising either the Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of West Bengal or any other appropriate university to issue valid certificates under the modular system as practised in the institute. But that will not serve the purposes of students belonging to the First Module (equivalent to vocational 10+2 level) and the Second Module (equivalent to the Poly-technique diploma level) in respect of admission to other institutes.
Admission to Poly-technique level is based on 10th standard board results. But the students of the institute are declared to be equivalent to 10+2 level vocational courses. Naturally they cannot be admitted at the entry level of other poly-technique institutes. But as per existing norms, Poly-technique institutes do not have any provision of co-lateral admission in the 2nd year level.
The same is true even in the case of admission of students who have passed the 2nd module to other colleges. AS per norms co-lateral entry of poly-technique students is done at the 2nd year level. If the same is practised here, these students shall have to expend an extra year of studies.
Considering all these, the only remedy that can be assorted to is to provide Autonomous Status to the Gani Khan Chowdhury Institute of Engineering & Technology, Malda, West Bengal covering all the three modules and empower the institute to issue valid certificates at each level. Only this step can resolve the issue.
Hence, we earnestly request you to kindly cause necessary measures towards granting the status of Autonomous Educational Institute under Modular System to Gani Khan Chowdhury Institute of Engineering & Technology, Malda, West Bengal and thus protect the interest of students not less than 800 in numbers.
