AGARTALA, Nov 13 (TIWN): Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar, Education Minister Tapan Chakraborty’s another blunder with Higher Education System mocks at Tripura's Unemployment tension. Resentments have brewed among a major section of unemployed youths, who had been much talented to crack joint entrance exams during Class-12 and were recommended by the state govt through joint entrance to study Agricultural Engineering. While recommending, the students and their parents were assured by the govt with 100 % job guarantees along with much hypes about demands of the course.

But when they passed out, the reality was worse than the expectation as there are now no scope for the graduates to sit in the 'Tripura Engineering Service' (TES) exams through TPSC, which has generated panic, tension and resentment among the passed out students.

TIWN talked to many victims of the same stream, who had successfully cracked joint entrance, but since 4 years the passed out batches are striving to appear in TES exam through TPSC, but there is no scope for them as according to the state govt there is no necessity of Agricultural Engineering, although the course which itself was recommended by the state govt.

Noteworthy, the Agricultural Engineering is highly demanding course, has been functioning to boost country’s economy since 70 years, that is since India’s independence. The College of Agricultural Engineering and Post Harvest Technology (CAEPHT) was established by CAU, Imphal at Gangtok, Sikkim during the 2006, offers various subjects and should be qualified state level joint entrance / common entrance examinations held by different Northeast States.

The memorandum given by the passed out students clearly says, “As same students from Tripura were nominated by the Tripura State Government through Tripura Joint Entrance Examination for admission in the University / From 2006 onwards the sponsored seats for CAU- Agricultural Engineering came through Tripura Joint Entrance Examination (TJEE)  PCM Counselling”.

The B.Tech (Agricultural Engineering) graduates are deprive of employment opportunities by the Government, though they have specialized skills in the subjects and depts. For example B.Tech (Agricultural Engineering) graduates learn intensive skills in water resources development and management, but they are denied the opportunity of employment in the  Water Resource Developmenr Organization, though they are equally suitable as that of B.E. (Civil) graduates on the part of qualification. Similarly, they are also denied the employment in the state agriculture dept and watershed dept.

Therefore the passed out students demanded to include Agricultural Engineering subject as one of the subject for the entry level in engineering wings of Agriculture Dept., Govt of Tripura.

The unemployed youths alleged, “As Govt gives us sponsored seats from other states to study but when it came to implement and employment generation no one cares……..We demand, to make necessary correspondence to the concerned organization for inclusion of this B.Tech subject in TES Examination”.
