Engineering education in Tamilnadu

Tamilnadu government established engineering colleges in Villupuram, Tindivanam, Ariyalur, Thirukuvalai, Ramanathapuram and Panruti to provide facilities to the students to pursue professional education at an affordable cost.These institutions have been designated as Anna University (Chennai and Tiruchi) colleges.These six new government engineering colleges will start functioning from the current academic year.During the ongoing single window counselling for engineering admissions in Tamil Nadu, there are virtually no takers for the new government colleges.This is despite the fact that the annual fees in government colleges are only Rs 15,000 against Rs 40,000 charged by colleges which offer courses accredited by the National Board of Accreditation.
