thing which surprised me was cutoff of Computer engineering in IIIT BHUBNAESHWAR 13k to 22k. even when this course isn't AICTE approved!!
and AICTE norms are -
No course other than those specifically approved by the Council, be run in the same premises sharing the same facilities.
The Council shall initiate appropriate penal civil and / or criminal action against such defaulting Institutions/ Societies/ Trusts/ Companies/ Associated Individuals as the case may be and the following action shall also be taken:-
- No admission status for approved programme/courses
- Withdrawal of approval of the Institution
However, such Institution may follow AICTE approval procedure by submitting an application / proposal, as mentioned in Clause/s 23, 25 to 30 of the approval process hand book.
If the Council decides to issue Letter of Approval for such courses, after processing the proposal as per laid down procedure, its legal date of starting will be from the date of issue of the Letter of Approval and the students admitted, if any, before receiving approval by the Council, will have to be readmitted as per laid down procedure considering basic eligibility for admission from the beginning of first year after approval by the Council. Students, who are admitted prior to approval by the Council, will not have any right for re-admission and will have to fulfil all the requirements for admission.
So why are these people risking their future?
