In alleviation to several students selected in B. Tech courses under now-defunct FYUP of Delhi University, the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) has at last issued its approval to 27 colleges to run the courses.
AICTE has given approval for the 2013-14 batches which had taken admission in the B Tech courses, as a component of the now outdated Four-Year Undergraduate Program (FYUP).
"We have received a correspondence from AICTE educating that the approval has been conceded to the 27 schools," a senior college authority said.
B. Tech programmes in computer science, electronics, food technology, instrumentation electronics and polymer science were launched as part of FYUP, which was last year scrapped following UGC intervention.
The universities were requested that look for regard from AICTE, the apex advisory body controlling specialized instruction in the nation.
With a few due dates passing throughout the months, understudies had raised concerns over non-approval of the courses with HRD minister Smriti Irani in February this year who, in turn, had coordinated the VC to do the needful.
The lack of AICTE approval for the B Tech programmes was also a bone of contention between the HRD ministry and DU VC Dinesh Singh.
While Singh had kept up that the courses obliged no AICTE approbation as they were being offered by the varsity itself, the ministry countered his perspectives saying the courses ought to be screened by the controller.
In April, AICTE had given the schools a 'six-hour' due date to present a testimony promising that they would address the inadequacies of staff and foundation within the following six months.
The principals had discovered the due date to be "illogical", after which the varsity had brought up the issue with AICTE, which had consented to take a merciful perspective of the case.
