AICTE Says No To New Colleges

    All India Council of Technical Education has decided to put a full stop on the opening up of new engineering and management colleges in India for the academic session 2013-2014. The reason behind this ban is that the supply is outstripping the demand of engineering and management seat across the country. In Uttar Pradesh, in past 5 years, the number of engineering colleges has increased from 84 in 2006 to 333 in 2012. Only 25,903 students took admission in engineering colleges while the seats offered by SEE were 1, 15,379. Same is the case with management colleges. The number of colleges has increased from 93 to 421 in past 5 years. Only 4,373 students took admission in management colleges while the number of seats offered by SEE was 32,228. In a situation where the number of seats offered exceeds the number of students taking admission, it is useless to open new colleges. Pro vice-chancellor (Gautam Budh Technical University) Prof. V.K. Singh said, “The mushrooming of colleges had to stop. In our state, not more than 20% students are taking admissions. The numbers have declined in the past 3-4 years. AICTE's move will definitely help state like UP in providing better education. We don't have trained staff and teachers. With no proper infrastructure, we are not able to do justice with the students.” 
    Not many people are happy with the decision of AICTE. Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Avadh University, Faizabad’s registrar, S.K. Shukla rejected the council’s decision. He said, “A blanket ban will not serve the purpose. The restriction should be prudent. This way, areas like Bundelkhand will continue to suffer as there is a dearth of engineering and management colleges.”
