The Union ministry of human resource and development (MHRD) has formed a review committee to analyse and review the current AICTE regulations. Experts feel that a system to monitor quality education is the need of the hour as there are number of colleges mushrooming across country.
The order was passed on October 22 and the MHRD has formed a committee of four members - M K Kaw, former secretary to MHRD as the chairman and A K Agarwal, vice- chancellor, Gujarat Technological University, U B Desai, director, IIT-Hyderabad and Ashok Jhunjhunwala, professor, IIT-Madras as the members of the committee.
The committee is expected to analyze the standards of technical education, performance of students and faculty members, organization of AICTE and its regional centres and regulations pertaining to accreditation. The committee has been asked to submit a report on the recommendations on AICTE regulations by April 2015.
