What do you think about this list. Do you agree or dispute? share your opinions in comment section


  1. Survey results are not accurate. For example to say Maharaja Institute of Technology as a top college is atop joke.
    Please do not misguide public by giving false or wrong results

  2. That's right. This survey is not giving the actual piccture. Maharaja Institute of Technology is relatively new college and how it was able to find place in the list is questionable. More than that PES Mandya is no where in the list.

  3. Gopinath Rathod
    Surely the survey is purposeful oriented
    Its fully fake data oriented survey
    I totally oppose this survey since it doesnt include BEC Bagalkot which is the most best college in northern part of karnataka and also in entire karnataka

  4. The visit was useful. Content was really very informative. From www.rightbooks.in/Delivery_Locations.asp

  5. No UVCE in the list... ??!! One of the top colleges in Blore with 100% placements with top IT companies...

  9. Mr. Anonymous before making any statement please check the list again. The list is prepared & published zonal wise. In mysore Zone National Institute of Engineering is mentioned as NIE Institute of Technology, Mysore - May be a typo).

    Some of the most eminent colleges are not included in the list because these colleges are now sanctioned with Autonomous status. Which means all these colleges are above the list of colleges provided here. (Though some autonomous colleges are included. For detailed guide on how they selected these colleges you have to refer to the Vijaya karnataka News Paper Dated 16-06-2011)

    There is no necessity for publishing the same list of colleges which are performed well consistantly over a period of time and every one know the quality of these colleges.

    Only the collleges under regular universities like VTU is taken into consideration while preparing the list.

    Desclaimer : This list is prepared by Vijaya Karnataka News Paper & not by News Bird. We are not held responsible for just publishing the findings in our website for the use of our readers.
