PTU colleges fail to fill engineering seats
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, July 8
'  "Bring five new students and get Rs 25,000 as prize money.'   This is the incentive that some engineering colleges in Punjab offer to their teachers. There is also a warning: 'Failing, you can lose your job'. This perhaps underlines a new trend: while the Punjab Technical University boasts of 108 colleges under its wing, the seats it offers seem to go abegging.

Figures say it all: out of the 32,789 seats available after counseling this year, the number of students allotted seats in the first round is only 10,146 '     almost one-third of the total seats.

The admission graph of PTU engineering colleges seems to be falling with each passing year: the AIEEE top ranker this time in a PTU college is one with a 13,389 all-India rank, nearly 3,000 down than the last year.

"The colleges sustaining themselves through donations all these years may as well see it as the end of the road," says an engineering college principal.

A sharp rise in the number of private engineering colleges and placement problems faced by the pass-outs appear to be the main factors leading to vacant seats.

This is borne out by the fact that 69 per cent of engineering seats in Punjab remained vacant after the first round of the joint online counselling conducted by the PTU.

Dr MS Saini, director of Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, said the Centre should put a tab on the mushroom growth of engineering colleges.

Income above Rs 10 lakh
Now, file IT return electronically
Manav Mander
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, July 8
Any individual or a Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) whose total income during the previous year exceeds Rs10 lakh will now be required to file income tax returns electronically.The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has made e-filing compulsory for the assessment year 2012-13 onwards.

Similarly, an individual or an HUF, being a resident, having assets, including financial interest outside India or signing authority in any account located outside India will now be required to furnish the return in Form ITR-2 or ITR-3 or ITR-4, along with the e-filing of the returns. However, digital signature will not be mandatory for these taxpayers and they can also transmit data in the return electronically and thereafter submit the verification of the return in Form ITR-5.

Filing of the returns electronically under digital signatures is already mandatory for any company required to furnish the return in Form ITR-6 or a firm required to furnish the return in Form ITR-5 or an individual or HUF required to furnish the return in Form ITR-4 and to whom provisions of Section 44AB are applicable.

"The department is emphasising on e-filing, because it's easy, fast and secure method of filing of income tax return, and it also helps the department to provide taxpayers value-added services like tracking

of refunds, viewing tax credit status, email and SMS alerts regarding status of processing and refunds," said an senior income tax official.

While a tax payer, Abhishek Khanna, who will be filing the return electronically, is looking forward to it. "I expect it to be a hassle-free work rather than doing everything with pen and paper and one is really conscious of mistakes. I appreciate this step and wish e-filing should be made mandatory for every tax payer," he said.

CBSE all set to do away with rote learning Charanjit Singh Teja
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, July 8
The Central Board of Secondary Education is all set to start open-book board examination for classes X and XII from the next academic session. The current examination system of the country encourages students toward memorising the syllabi, but with the implementation of the new system, students will be allowed to open textbooks in examination centres.

The board will put analytical questions in the paper.

As per information, the board has formed an exam reform committee to suggest changes that will discourage rote learning system.

The system is already implemented in the US, UK and Canada. Now, the Human Resource Development Ministry (HRD) is interested in implementing the open-book exam system in CBSE schools.

"The examination system needs to be changed to uplift the education system. Current pattern of examination strengthens the memory of students, but we need a system that enhances the ability of students. Under the open book system, the board will set situation-based question papers and students will have to think, analyse and apply his knowledge to solve the question," said Vandna.

"The pattern will be more effective as the objective behind the system is to encourage students towards understanding the subject rather than just memorising the books. Moreover, when it is running successfully in a number of evolved countries, the government should introduce it here as well," said Jasveer Kaur, a teacher from a CBSE-affiliated school.
