Government bans cell phones in all colleges


Don’t worry! This news is from our neighbouring state of Tamil Nadu. The Directorate of Collegiate Education (DCE) in Tamil Nadu has issued a circular asking all colleges to ban use of cellphones by students on the premises of the institutions. Here is a peculiar reason behind it. According to one of the official responsible for the notification - “In co-education colleges, we have received complaints that boys were taking videos and pictures of girl students. Mobile phones are also occasionally used for malpractices during examinations.” So get ready folks! Even the Telangana and AP government could take a cue from this decision to impart a ban in our colleges too!
