NEW DELHI: The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has extended its moratorium for establishing new engineering colleges for up to two years. But AICTE has given certain exceptions in the extension.
According to the exceptions provided under the moratorium, the AICTE will consider proposals by the state governments to start new polytechnics in conventional, emerging, multidisciplinary, vocational areas including PPP mode. Any industry with a minimum annual turnover of Rs 5000 crore in preceding 3 years registered as a trust, society, company is also exempted.

AICTE chairman Anil Sahasrabudhe announced that more than 40 percent of essential requirements already demanded by the Council from its approved institutions are NEP compliant. “It is pertinent to mention that in the previous academic year the Council took a step forward to diminish the subject barrier by including total of 14 subjects studied in various school education boards across the country to make them eligible for pursuing technical education courses offered by the Council. The same gained quite a traction across the academia in the country. To clear the perception of Multiple Entry Multiple Exit (MEME) and bridge courses, the Council in its APH this year has included an eligibility table depicting course wise subject eligibility for admission to various branches of Engineering & Technology,” said Sahasrabudhe.
