Attendance relief for BE students.

In a relief to about 3,000 engineering students from the Telangana region, who are facing shortage of attendance to appear for semester exams, the Osmania University and JNTU-Hyderabad have decided to give attendance relaxation to compensate for classes missed during the Sakala Janula Samme in September and October. Out of the total 710 engineering colleges in the state, about 315 are located in the T-region and are affiliated to JNTU-Hyderabad and Osmania University.

While about 2,500 students under the purview of JNTU-Hyderabad were declared ineligible to appear for semester exams this month due to less than 75 per cent attendance, another 500 students from OU were found ineligible. OU has decided to add two-week attendance for all its BE/ B.Tech students to compensate for the loss of attendance on account of lack of transport facilities during the strike period. However, the university made it clear that the relaxation will be applicable only for this year as a special case and will not be a precedent. Similarly, JNTU-Hyderabad had decided to give 25 per cent attendance relaxation. However, students have to pay a fees of Rs 300 to avail the relaxation. Students with 40 per cent attendance and above will also be allowed to appear for exams. Both the universities were under tremendous pressure from students, parents and public representatives who were demanding attendance relaxation.
