These colleges include 49 non-AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) institutes recognised by Maharashtra State Board of Technical Education (MSBTE) and 21 AICTE-approved ones.
MSBTE has started monitoring these colleges from 2011. It covers faculty profile, infrastructure and other facilities, consultancy/teaching projects, accreditation, libraries and student performance.
Report on institutes inspected has been uploaded on the MSBTE website for the benefit of students and parents.
"There cannot be fresh admissions at these polytechnics from this year. Due to an ongoing exercise of academic monitoring, infrastructure and other facilities have improved at many institutes," said MSBTE director P M Khodke.
Every year technical colleges across the state must have to get the affiliation from the State Technical board or AICTE.
July 01, 2013 is the last to apply for the affiliation in MSBTE for the academic year 2013-14.
The purpose of Affiliation is to affiliate the institute and their courses with certain intake to AICTE.
This system will be used by Institutes and RBTEs. The Institutes are supposed to enter their information, the courses to be affiliated, and the DD details for payment, and upload the approval letters like AICTE, DTE and Govt. The RBTE's are supposed to view and edit the required details of institutes and confirm their affiliation.
For affiliation colleges must have to provide details about the academic strength, Placements, faculty level and infrastructure. Colleges must follow the norms of the MSBTE and Government of Maharashtra.
