Sir, This refers to the article Need for a new engineering college by Dr Gayatri Gogoi (AT, April 13) which highlights how deserving candidates are deprived of higher education due to inadequate number of colleges and universities. The problem is serious in Assam so far as technical education is concerned. In comparison to other States of the country, the number of engineering colleges in Assam is surprisingly small. Assam has only three engineering colleges where as Tamil Nadu has 25, Andhra Pradesh 223, Karnataka 112 and Maharashtra 151. Roughly Rs 180 crore go out of the State every year. We are glad to know that the Assam Government decided to establish a new engineering college. Dhemaji may be selected as the site as it is economically backward and geographically disadvantaged. There are, no doubt, many places without technical institution but Dhemaji should be preferred as it has high rural and tribal population. An engineering college with newer branches of
engineering at Dhemaji will not only fulfil the long-felt demand of the area but also bring peace and prosperity to the State. Yours etc., DR BABULAL MORE. JDSG College, Bokakhat.
