UGC new regulations only for Technical Education Institutions

HRD Ministry and University Grants Commission (UGC) has announced that the new rules drafted by UGC will affect only the affiliated colleges offering Degree courses and not for Diploma Courses.

Recently, UGC had drafted the new regulations for the colleges affiliated to the Universities, those are offering Technical Courses.

It was mentioned that many management colleges have not understood the Supreme Court judgment. It does not impact diploma courses by non-affiliated institutions.


According to the reports, a large number of management colleges are planning to go to the Supreme Court against the new regulations drafted by UGC.

Diploma Courses not under Technical Education

Their plea states that the regulations framed by the UGC will affect the admission process.

Earlier this year, Supreme Court announced a verdict on Technical Education. It is clearly mentioned that, the colleges affiliated to the Universities do not come under the Technical Education as defined under the AICTE Act 1987.

And also, AICTE is not required for obtaining permission and running MBA course by private universities.

The SC had also said AICTE's role vis-a-vis universities is "only advisory, recommendatory and one of providing guidance and has no authority empowering it to issue or enforce any sanctions by itself." Instead, the apex court had said regulatory function is with the UGC or the university.

Ministry sources said, "Management institutions have not understood the Supreme Court judgment. It does not impact diploma courses by non-affiliated institutions. Regulations have not been finalized yet. It will take some more time."

A senior UGC official said, "Regulations have to be in place before the 2014-15 admission session begins. AICTE had already finished the process for 2013-14 by the time SC order came." But AICTE officials are still hopeful that regulatory function will be restored either through amendment or ordinance.
