UGC Drafts Regulations for Approval of Colleges Imparting Technical Education

Dec 5, 2013 16:46 IST

    Following a Supreme Court ruling earlier this year, the University Grant Commission (UGC) has come up with a draft regulations for approval of colleges offering technical education.

    Earlier, the apex court ruled out that colleges affiliated to a university are not at par with the definition of "technical institution" as defined in AICTE Act, 1987.  Hence, it is imperative for the UGC to develop a methodology to ensure that existing technical or engineering colleges affiliated to universities are not diluting the quality of technical education imparted by them.

    Here’s what UGC’s draft regulations says:

    • Based on the information received and verified by the concerned authority, every university shall maintain a list of unapproved colleges of technical education and should inform the UGC and general public about the same from time to time.

    • Besides, any college offering technical education and which has already started without following approval procedure shall be treated as unapproved college.

    • Colleges imparting courses in technical education in temporary location or at location not approved by the university shall be liable for action.

    • In case of such a withdrawal of approval to the college, operations of the said college and course shall not be started again before completion of two academic years from the date of such a withdrawal.
