The AICTE has rendered a schedule that is to be strictly adhered to by the state education department from 2013 onwards.
M K Hada, Advisor of the AICTE, states that as per the Supreme Court’s parameters, the AICTE has come up with a time-table for all the states to follow for admission in engineering and other technical professional courses.
As per the schedule, the states will have to seek permission for new colleges before April 30.
Earlier, colleges were granted admission as late as June and July, totally spoiling the admission process. "By June end, the first round of admission should be completed. The second round of admission should be completed on July 10 and the third round should be finished by July 20. Academic sessions in all technical colleges should begin on August 1", said Hada.
Hada said that if the states are found altering from the set guidelines, then they will be liable to serve a notice as the provided guidelines have been prepared following Supreme Court directives.
Locals are open to this change as it will tighten the loose admission process in Gujarat, known to stretch till September, October and even November.
Officials state that any student who is admitted after July 30th will not be enrolled by the universities and will not be recognized as a student by the AICTE.
