AICTE Partial Approval: Why was this decision taken?
Rajiv Kumar said that ‘All recognized technical institutions need approval from AICTE to run technical education programs. However, it has been seen that some central, state and private universities are taking approval only for a few selected courses. This is creating a situation of confusion among the stakeholders.
He said that ‘However, the Supreme Court had said in a judgment that universities need not take prior approval for starting new departments or programs in technical education. But universities have the responsibility and their duty to fulfill the standards set by AICTE. So that integrated development and set standards can be ensured for technical education.
Rajiv Kumar further said that ‘all recognized institutions which are running technical education programs, they need the approval of AICTE. The Council may conduct an inspection of the University at any time, in which it will be examined whether the Institute is operating as per the rules and provisions laid down by AICTE.
