Had the ranking list been published, the task of students preferring courses in credible institutions will be easier.

TIRUCHI: A handful of self-financing engineering colleges in Tiruchi region, which have made appreciable strides in infrastructure, academic performance, and placements, feel let down by the hesitancy of Anna University to publicise the ranking of institutions.

Administrators of these institutions feel there is no need for the university to budge to lobbying by managements of a majority of underdeveloped colleges, to desist from publishing the list, fearing poor admissions.

The university's rationale has not impressed progressive institutions. "Where then is the incentive for performance," questions an administrator of a front-ranking engineering college.

His line of thinking is: had the list been published, the task of the section of students preferring allotted courses in credible institutions over courses of choice in other institutions would have been made easier.
