The Supreme Court mentioned in a ruling that it is not going to be mandatory for affiliated colleges of a University to take prior approval from the ‘All India Council for Technical Education ‘ (AICTE) for conducting the MBA and MCA courses.
This land mark verdict was passed by the bench of Justices, B S Chauhan and V Gopala Gowda, when they passed the verdict on a bunch of appeals filed by several colleges affiliated to the Bharathidasan University and Manonmaniam Sundaranar University of Tamil Nadu.
The colleges challenged an order passed by the Madras High Court, which as per to them wrongly interpreted the provisions of the AICTE Act, 1987, and held that even though the University was not required to take permission from the AICTE to run the MCA and MBA courses , its affiliated colleges are required to do so.
The bench ended the course by stating that MBA is not a technical course within the definition of the AICTE Act.
