Now one more city college readies to get autonomy. The prestigious K.J. Somaiya College, Vidyavihar has received assurances from Rajesh Tope, Higher and Technical Education Minister, for their plans. The good news came as gift for the college authorities during their golden year celebration ceremony.

As part of the celebrations of Somaiya Vidyavihar, State Minister of Higher and Technical Education Rajesh Tope inaugurated the new Management Institute building, Chanakya, last week. While talking at the occasion, Tope made several points heard about the higher education scenario in the state.

While Samir Somaiya, vice-president of Somaiya Trust, in his speech evinced interest in autonomy for the institute, Tope in his speech assured all the help needed in its direction.

Somaiya said, “The aim behind the autonomy is to provide flexible curriculum to students. This has been though of considering the global higher education scenario. The object behind the move will be to reach the global standards in higher education so that we receive students’ participation from across the world like other developed countries.”

Somaiya added, “With the proposed autonomy, students get an opportunity to move out of the rigid frame of the courses offered in our education system. The academic autonomy will allow an engineering student to learn a language simultaneously. This can help to make studies more interesting for students to success.”

In response, Tope said, “We will be happy to welcome the proposal for autonomy.” Tope even suggested Somaiya to apply for autonomy not only for the Somaiya Management Institute but even to all other institutes offering different courses under the institute’s umbrella.”

Tope also elaborated more on the topic by saying, “It is the urgent need of the hour that huge load on the Universities in the state should be bifurcated.”
