Illegal Mushrooming of Educational Institutes in our Country is again awfully criticized by the Apex Court

While confirming the order of the dismissal Order of Gujarat High Court, in the matters of the writ proceedings initiated by unapproved MSKM B.Ed. College of Gujarat, managed by Shri Morvi Sarvajanik Kelavni Mandal, The Hon. Justice Mr. T.S. THAKUR, of Supreme Court of India, has further dismissed CIVIL APPEAL NO.11215 OF 2011, and has observed some serious remarks against the illegal mushrooming of educational institutes in our country as such that " Mushroom growth of ill-equipped, under-staffed and un-recognised educational institutions was noticed by this Court in State of Maharashtra v. Vikas Sahebrao Roundale and Ors. (1992) 4 SCC 435. This Court observed that the field of education had become a fertile, perennial and profitable business with the least capital outlay in some States and that societies and individuals were establishing such institutions without complying with the statutory requirements. The unfortunate part is that despite repeated pronouncements of this Court over the past two decades deprecating the setting up of such institutions. The mushrooming of the colleges continues all over the country at times in complicity with the statutory authorities, who fail to check this process by effectively enforcing the provisions of the NCTE Act and the Regulations framed thereunder. The present is one such case where the institution established by the appellant has been inspected more than once and several deficiencies that seriously affect its capacity to impart quality education and training to future teachers specifically pointed out. It is difficult to appreciate how the institution could have reported compliance with the requirements of the regulations and complete removal of the deficiencies after the order passed by the High Court when the institution had neither the land standing in its name nor the building constructed in which it could conduct the training program. The fact that the institution was being run in a building which was shared by two other colleges was itself sufficient to justify withdrawal of the recognition granted in its favour.
