The GOC scheme is structured into two categories:

  • Category A: Focused on conferences based on predefined themes announced by AICTE. Institutions can receive financial support for one-third of the conference expenditure, with a cap of INR 3 lakh.
  • Category B: Targeted at conferences proposed by institutions in emerging areas, core engineering, technical disciplines, management, hotel management, and various interdisciplinary fields. Financial assistance under this category is also one-third of the total expenditure, up to a maximum of INR 2 lakh. Additionally, Professor Sitharam announced the inclusion of BBA, BCA, and BMS colleges under Category B.

This initiative by AICTE is a significant step towards fostering academic and industry collaboration, promoting the sharing of innovative research, and advancing knowledge in technical and management domains. By offering financial support, AICTE aims to facilitate the organisation of conferences that can drive progress and innovation across various fields.
