AICTE Approves 102 new colleges

Published On: 20 Apr 2012

 | Last Updated On: 23 Apr 2012

This month AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) has released the first list of new colleges to fasten the process of admission for professional courses, which generally goes on till the October first week. This particular move of AICTE will result in more than 2.5 lakh seats for professional programs. At present, there are 3,393 engineering colleges and 4000 management colleges, which offer admissions to more than 14.86 lakh and 3.5 lakh students respectively.

Sources from AICTE revealed that they had received some 669 proposals for new colleges in the field of pharmacy, management, architecture and engineering. The first list of new colleges has 102 colleges out of which 17 are from the state of Maharashtra. Out of these 17 colleges, 4 colleges are management studies colleges and 11 are engineering colleges.

AICTE may also approve the request for more 100 colleges apart from this first list of 102 colleges. Sources however revealed their concern over a large number of vacant seats under various technical faculties - diploma, degree and post graduate programs coming under the DTE (Directorate of Technical Education).

There are already 348 engineering and 400 management institutes running in the state of Maharashtra wherein nearly 30% and 50% seats remained vacant respectively last year. With the addition of 17 new colleges, situation may get worse. Even in 2010, 5,000 management seats were left vacant and 25% diploma seats were not filled at all.  

But unfortunately the apex body, AICTE has received highest number of applications from Maharashtra and most of the applications were for establishing polytechnics. Out of the applications received - 15 applications were for management studies, 42 for polytechnic and 30 applications were for engineering colleges in Maharashtra.

A slowdown was quite obvious with AICTE receiving only 669 institutes’ new college applications in comparison to 2000 applications last year and several states such as Chattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Haryana, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka requesting the apex body, AICTE not to approve any new college application due to the problem of vacant seats.
