    The political instability may be one of the reason for the closure of the Engg colleges. But this need not be the main reason. The colleges who had applied for the closure may not be keeping the required standard. Now the students wish to join the institution where the placement is guarenteed. This can be achieved only if the colleges keep good standard . If the colleges are being accredited with the agency ( that may be instituted by AICTE) will attract the students.

    Engg Colleges have become commercial company/corporation with an aim of only making money. Quality of education has become zeo. Eligible students are not getting admission in top level colleges by virtue of reservation. Our education system itself needs complete overhauling.
