THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University (KTU) has issued a stop memo to Tom's College of Engineering in Mattakkara, Kottayam for alleged irregularities in the affiliation documents.
As per the University order, the college has to shut down on Tuesday, and efforts are on to transfer the students to other institutions, KTU officials said.
The University will bring issue a list of engineering institutions where KTU students can continue with their courses, except Chemical Engineering.
The transfer of students pursuing Chemical Engineering course will be decided after receiving specific directions from the All India Council For Technical Education (AICTE), the officials said.
A visit by a three-member panel including the Registrar of KTU had found that the college had furnished false information regarding the infrastructure facilities while obtaining affiliation.
The college had earlier landed in a soup after first and second-year students and their parents levelled serious allegations of harassment against Chairman Tom T Joseph and complained of mismanagement and a dearth of infrastructural facilities in the college.
