Maharashtra gets tough on engg colleges over AICTE norms

Earlier this year, the AICTE had sent inspection teams to 16 colleges across the state and found eight of them had major ‘deficiencies’.

ALL ENGINEERING colleges in the state that have defaulted on norms set by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) will now have to inform the government about the time they need to comply. State Higher and Technical Education Minister Ravindra Waikar has instructed his department to get affidavits from erring colleges and track the progress of compliance during the period specified by these colleges.

Earlier this year, the AICTE had sent inspection teams to 16 colleges across the state and found eight of them had major ‘deficiencies’. Admissions to these eight colleges were denied by the AICTE. Engineering colleges have to seek an extension of approval every year for their AICTE affiliation to remain valid. They have to submit affidavits specifying details of infrastructure, staff etc.

However, last year the NGO, Citizens Forum for Sanctity in Education, complained that engineering colleges had furnished false details about their infrastructure and faculty. The governor had then asked the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) to inspect the 367 engineering colleges in the state.
