The University Grants Commission (UGC) has decided to suspend approval and regulation of new technical institutes for a year, extending stay on respective guidelines issued just a few days ago.
Consequently, no new technical institutes will be set up in the country for a whole year, and subsequently, there will be constant intake numbers in the existing institutes for the academic year 2014-15.
In a notice released on 03 April, universities are asked to "neither invite nor process" any application, although, earlier the UGC asked universities to grant affiliation to new engineering, pharmacy and hotel management colleges in March.
Earlier, the approval of new institutes was the responsibility of All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), but later it was merged with that of the affiliation process, and now will be done by universities.
An official from UGC said the commission felt there was a need to have a proper framework in place to execute the new process.
