All engineering colleges in Tamilnadu may come under Chennai based Anna University

The Tamil Nadu government is likely to dissolve five Anna Universities of Technology, started during the previous DMK government in Chennai, Tiruchi, Coimbatore, Madurai and Tirunelveli.

It is widely expected that the issue of merging these institutions would figure in the agenda of the Cabinet meeting on Monday.

The government might consider stripping the AUTs in Coimbatore, Tiruchy, Tirunelveli, Chennai and Madurai of their powers to affiliate engineering colleges and retain them as unitary universities. All the engineering colleges in the State could be brought under the premier Anna University in Chennai, restoring status quo ante (2007-08).

The present vice-chancellors, who head these universities, could be made their deans. The decision could be announced in the governor’s address in the assembly on June 3.
