According to a rule of the council, colleges that report less than 30% admissions for five consecutive years and also lack proper infrastructure will have to be shut down.
The council has asked the colleges to submit a report by the second week of September in this regard.
According to reports, colleges with less than 30% admission in past five years have been given the option to either shut down or get merged with a nearby college.
AICTE is also planning to introduce six months training for professors to improve the quality of education in engineering. Moreover, to enhance skills of the students, industry internship has also been made mandatory for second and third year students.
