Delhi University to obtain approval from AICTE for B.Tech programme

DU to obtain approval from AICTE for B.Tech

University Grants Commission (UGC) has directed University of Delhi has to obtain appropriate approval from the AICTE for its B.Tech programmes in Computer Science, Electronics, Food Technology, Instrumentation Electronics and Polymer Science started in academic year 2013-14.

However, the Supreme Court, in its order has mandated that prior approval of AICTE is compulsory and mandatory for conduct of a technical course by an existing affiliated Technical College for conduct of its Technical Courses/ Programmes for the academic year 2014-15.

Therefore, the approval for B.Tech programmes became mandatory.

Regarding approval of All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for the B.Tech course conducted by the colleges affiliated to University of Delhi, the Hon'ble Supreme Court, in its Judgment dated April 25, 2013, had excluded colleges affiliated to University from the definition of "Technical Institution" as defined under Section 2(h) of the AICTE Act, 1987.

Therefore, B.Tech. Programmes started by University of Delhi, in academic year 2013-14, did not require approval of AICTE, as per the prevailing case law at that time.
