AICTE approves 11 new colleges in Maharashtra, 1.4 lakh seats still vacant

Published On: 29 May 2013

 | Last Updated On: 29 May 2013

Even though the Maharashtra Government has warned AICTE (All-India Council of Technical Education) that around 1.4 lakh management, engineering and architecture seats are still lying vacant, the council has approved about 11 new colleges in the state.

Commencement of new colleges even after numerous seats are lying vacant across the state may lead to a situation, wherein several existing colleges may need to close down.

There were around 4.53 lakh seats including the aided, unaided, degree and diploma colleges in the state in 2012-13, out of which about 1.44 lakh seats are still lying vacant. In spite of this, for this new academic year, the council has approved new degree and diploma colleges with intake capacity of around 13,000 and 11,000 respectively.   

As per records, percentage of seats vacant in each region and type of colleges are mentioned below:

  • Aurangabad region – 42.67%
  • Nashik region- 38.12%,
  • Pune region- 28.97%,
  • Nagpur region- 27.05%,
  • Amravati region- 26.70% and
  • Mumbai region- 8.49%.

Vacant seats in colleges:

  • 28.60% vacant seats in private unaided colleges
  • 13.84%  in University departments running professional colleges
  • 0.78% in government aided colleges
  • 0.75% government-run colleges.

Viewing the huge number of vacant seats in the state, a committee has been formed by the government in order to draft a plan on how many new colleges are required for 2013-14. A comprehensive perspective plan on district-wise requirements for new colleges was framed by the committee and the same was submitted to AICTE. The committee thought that the council would approve new colleges considering the aforementioned submissions. But, the plan was completely ignored by the council while granting permission to the new colleges in the state.

Students for the new session will be allotted in the new colleges following the common admission processes. AICTE was expected to least check the vacant seat statistics before approving 11 new colleges to commence in Maharashtra.
