The blacklist includes colleges being run by some very very noted education groups of the Orange City and also the region including Meghe, Raisoni, Pandav, Agnihotri, Priyadarshini, Joshi, Mulak, Waghaye Patil among others. The colleges have abysmally failed to stick to the norms and guidelines laid down by the RTMNU, and the decision to bar admissions to those colleges was in accordance with the High Court orders.
Nagpur News: “Ninety percent of the politicians give the other ten percent a bad reputation.” — Henry A. Kissinger, one of the greatest of diplomats, and former Foreign Secretary of United States.
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” — Mahatma Gandhi
“You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.”
However, the picture on education to a great extent appears drastically contradictory if the Nagpur citizens scan the newspapers. They would certainly be horrified to see advertisements put in by Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University’s (RTMNU) Board of College and University Development.
The Director of the Board Arvind Chaudhary, informed the students through the advertisements that they should skip more than 300 colleges for admissions purpose. “The colleges have abysmally failed to stick to the norms and guidelines laid down by the RTMNU. We have acted in accordance with the High Court orders and unless these colleges come clean and make amends the RTMNU will not permit admissions of students to these colleges thereby putting them in a blacklist,” Chaudhary asserted.
The RTMNU had submitted a list 338 colleges without full-time teachers to the Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court. Justice Arun Chaudhari had observed on May 3 that “if the position holds good even today, admissions of students in those colleges shall be subject to the further orders of this Court and also at the risk and cost of Vice-Chancellor, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, and Registrar.”
The list conclusively includes colleges being run by some very very noted education groups of the Orange City and also the region including Meghe, Raisoni, Pandav, Agnihotri, Priyadarshini, Joshi, Mulak, Waghaye Patil among others.
If the names of the political leaders.who have been running these colleges, are to be mentioned then the exercise would prove futile. Everybody knows these colleges are being managed by Datta Meghe, MP, Sewak Waghaye, MLA, Jainuddin Zaveri, former MLC, and NCP’s Uday Tekade and other bigwigs the people are well apprised.
The parents have been put to such a terrible dilemma as even admissions have been barred in many engineering, architecture, and management colleges which find their names in the dreaded list. Another aspect about these colleges is that many colleges are being run by RTMNU’s statutory members like Purushottam Thote, too. Thote is member of Senate.
The total number of colleges affiliated to RTMNU stands at 827, the highest in Maharashtra. Moreover, the RTMNU cleared the proposals of 51 new colleges.
The some of the following colleges find themselves in the blacklist:
1) Central India College of Engineering.

The number of students and the seats available in RTMNU colleges:
- Students clearing Standard XII (SSC/CBSE): 1.25 lakh
- Number of seats in RTMNU colleges (All faculties): Over 2.5 lakh
- Students clearing Standard XII (SSC/CBSE) in 2012: 1.20 lakh
- Number of seats in RTMNU colleges (All faculties) in 2012: Over 2.5 lakh
- Vacant seats in 2012: Over 1 lakh.
The net outcome as far as admission front is concerned is that the parents and students who were rightfully planning admissions to these colleges have been finding themselves in the situation between the deep blue sea and the devil if appropriately defined in the present context. The students would the victims of this awful situation if the state of affairs regarding blacklisting of 338 colleges is concerned. The students and parents are helpless. They would just have to wait for time, and only time, which alone could predict the future: BRIGHT OR BLEAK.
