Telangana: TSBIE deploys committee to approve ads for junior colleges

Hyderabad: A five-membered committee has been announced by the Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education (TSBIE) to look over advertisements proposed by private junior colleges.

The board, on Monday, mandated that those looking forward to advertising their students and publishing any other advertisement must first take the approval of the committee, comprising senior officials from the Intermediate board.

The move has been initiated to rule out the allegations of corporate junior colleges giving out misleading advertisements over the top ranks by students in entrance tests such as the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) UG to lure parents and students into their institutions.
