AICTE comes under Indian Government scrutiny

The Human Resource Ministry of India has critised the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for its 'unfair' practices in the past. The ministry has invited suggestions from organisations and individuals alike on the functioning of AICTE.

The committee has invited suggestions, views and comments from invested organisations, institutions and individuals on 'different aspects relating to the working of AICTE, particularly the positive impact and problem areas'. The applicants have been asked to suggest procedures for recognition of new technical institutions and improvement processes. The committee will be headed by Janardhan Dwivedi, a member of Parliament, and the suggestions could come within the next 15 days.
