Are Engineering Colleges Ignoring The AICTE Rules?

AICTE Blacklisted Colleges Back At Work
As we all know, that AICTE (All India Council For Technical Education) has announced the list of unauthorized colleges, but has it issued a show cause notice to these 43 colleges? It seems like institutions in the state (Hyderabad) can function without the approval of the highest accreditation agency for Technical Education in the country.

The State Government has failed to issue show cause notices to even one of these institutions. And hence the colleges tend to continue their journey for the year, continuing with their autonomous status, conducting examinations and placements and also granting Degrees without the Approval of AICTE.

Few institutions like ISB, IIPM, CYGMAX have refused to show their interest against their lacking of Approval by AICTE. Where as around 12 colleges have contacted the state's technical education department stating that they had already applied for accreditation in an attempt to have the legal proceedings against them.

Officials of the State technical education department said "Since these colleges lacked AICTE approval, they should stop taking in new admissions. However, since most of these institutions are autonomous bodies which do not negotiate with the state's technical education wing, no action can be initiated against them".

Official from the Badruka Institute of Foreign Trade said "Each year we have been boasting of 100% placements and our student strength has not decreased". Based on the Observation, with a successful placements at the top institutes, students were hardly going to keep away from these institutions.

AICTE Official says that "While AICTE can stop the institutions from functioning, the fact that they have good industry tie-ups cannot be ignored. These institutions have been providing good placements to their students. Some of them have been in touch with AICTE to update us about the quality of education that is being provided by them".

Among these 43 blacklisted institutions, a few of them have failed to impress/attract students since the past few years. Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University Official said "Their fee structure is high and the quality of education is poor. Some of them might even shut the institute in the upcoming academic year.

Also, at the same time AICTE has informed all the remaining institutes to apply for the AICTE Approval.
