FORE WORD

This Manua l provide s detailed informa tion on the Approv al Process, for which
the All India Council for Technical Educat ion (AICTE) is responsible, under Section
lO(k) of the AICTE Act 1987: .

"grant approval for starting new technical institutions and for introduction of
new courses or programmes in consultation with the agencies concerned."

The Approv al Process involve s consult ation among the State Govern ment, the
Univer sity and the AICTE. Each has a role to play in this Process: the State
Govern ment identifies the need, the geograp hical distribu tion, the discipline-wise
distribution, the nature and scope of growth of Technical Educat ion in the State
etc.; while the Univer sity ensures the fulfillment of the conditi ons for affiliation,
which mainly deals with the curricu lum, the academ ic infrastr ucture, the staff
positio n etc.; and the AICTE ensures compli ance with the Norms & Standa rds
prescrib ed by it on the basis of the recomm endatio ns of the Boards of Studies and
other Expert Groups. It is, thus, the joint responsibility of these agencies for approv al
to Technical Institut ions in differen t parts of the country .

This year, the AICTE has endeav ored· to bring a greater deal of transpa rency into
the Process. The Nationa l Calend ar has bee!} publish ed in the AICTE Website:
www.a icte.em et.in and widely dissem inated across the length and breadth of the
country. The several Commi ttees involve d in scrutini zing the Applica tions include
renown ed Experts of impeccable repute and _integrity. Enough opportu nities have
been given to the Applica nts for putting forth their strengt hs and points of view.
The decisio n-maki ng process has been designe d in such a way as to be truly
objective, fair and transpa rent.

It is hoped that the stakeho lders will appreci ate the steps beirtg taken by the AICTE
to follow a fair and transpa rent system in the Approv al Process.

TECHN ICAL EDUCA TION 11JND ER AICTE ACT

1.1 BACKGR OUND

.l.he begirinirtg of formal Technical Education in India can be dated back to the mid 19th Century.
'I 'he major policy initiatives in the pre-indep endence period included appointm ent of the Indian
Universities Commissi on in 1902, issue of the Indian Education policy resolution in 1904 and
I he Governor General's policy statement of 1913 stressing the importanc e of Technical Education
,
I he establishm ent of liSe in Bangalore, Institute for Sugar, Textile and Leather Technolog
y in
l<<mpur, N.C.E. in Bengal in 1905 and Industrial schools iR several provinces . Significan t
l kvelopme nts include:

• Constituti on of the Technical Education Committe e of the Central Advisory Board


of Education (CABE) of 1943;
• Preparatio n of the Sergeant report of 1944; and
• Formation of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) in 1945 by the
Govt. of India.

'I 'he AICTE was set up in Novembe r 1945 based on the recommen dations of CABE to stimula_te,
mordinate and control the provision s of education al facilities and industrial developm ent of
lhe post war period. At that time, AICTE's mandate basically covered only programm es in
1':11gineering and Technolog y.

II ll' growth of industries in the country, just after independe nce, also demanded the need for
, ll t<1lified professionals in the other fields, such as Business Managem ent, Architecture, Hotel
i\ 1<1nagement, Pharmacy , etc. Although the diverse elements of Managem ent such as Commerce ,
I '·< momics, Finance, Psycholog y and Industrial Sociology were being taught for a long
time,
· IH • need for Managem ent Education in a formal way was felt in India only in the fifties . The
:·.• ,vernment of India decided in 1954 to set up a Board of Managem ent Studies under AICTE to
1' 11·nmlate standards and promote Managem ent Education . Other major initiatives taken
in
\ l.lnageme nt Education include setting up of the Administr ative Staff College of India at
I I vderabad in the late fifties, National Productiv ity Council and Indian Institute of Managem ent
' ll !he early sixties. Architectu re was covered under the Architects
Act, 1972. Subsequen tly, for
'·Iter coordinati on of the Professional Courses, Architectu re Education was also placed under
, :(· purview of AICTE.

,, ,tel Managem ent Education had a modest beginning with short programm es in Nutrition
1d Food Science, which started in the late fifties. The National Council of Hotel Managem ent
nl Catering Technology was set up in1982, to which all the institution s of Hotel Managem ent
· Ill by the Governme nt are affiliated.
Education in the professional field such as Pharmacy, Applied Arts & Crafts, etc. have als
undergone similar developments during the post-independence period.

Programme for Technical Education, during the first three 5-year plans, were devoted t
expansion of Technical Education to meet the growing demand for technical personnels a
Diploma., Degree and Post-graduate Levels. From the fourth 5-year Plan onwards, the emphasi
was shifted to the improvement of quality and standards of Technical Education. This wa
done through implementation of the quality Improvement Programme consisting of three majo[
components viz., (1) Provisions for M.E./ M. Tech and Ph.D Programmes, (2) Establishment 9f
Curriculum Design and Development Cells, and (3) Short Term Training Programmes.
Meanwhile, expansion of institution$ and intake remained at a low level in the Government,
Private-aided and University sectors. The policy shift during eighties towards involvement 9f
Private and Voluntary Organizations in setting up of Technical and Management Institutionf
on self-financing basis ushered in an era of unprecedented expansion of the Technical Educatio
System, a trend which has continued during seventh, eighth and ninth 5-year plans.

It was in this context that AICTE was given statutory powers by the AICTE Act of P~rliament i
1987, with a view to the proper planning and coordinated development of Technical Educatio
System through out the Country. "Technical Education" in this context includes fields 9f
Engineering and Technology, Architecture, Town Planning, Management, Pharmacy ana
Applied Arts & Crafts."

1.2 GROWTH OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION

The growth of Technical Education before independence in the couritry has been very slo
Number of Engineering Colleges and Polytechnics (including Pharmacy and Architectu
Institutions) in 1947 were 44 and 43 respectively 'with an intake capacity of 3200 and 340p
respectively. Due to efforts and initiatives taken during successive 5-year plans and particular!~
due to policy changes in the eighties to allow participation of Private and Voluntary Organizations
in setting up of Technical Institutions on self-financing basis, growth of Technical Educati~
has been phenomenal. At Present, there are 1208 Under-graduate Degree Level Engineerin
Institutions, 1197 Diploma Level Engineering Institutions, 930 Management Institutions, 10 ~
MCA Institutions, 294 Under-graduate Degree Level and 343 Diploma Level Pharmacl~
Institutions, 43 Under-graduate Degree Level and 65 Diploma Level Hotel Manageme' t
Institutions, and 108 Under-graduate Degree Level Architecture Institutions with a combine
total intake capacity of 7.6 lakhs approximately.

1.3 THE AICTE ACT, 1987

The AICTE Act, 1987 was passed by the Parliament, to provide for the establishment ·of the Ajll
India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) with a view to the proper planning and ~r­
ordinated development of the technical education system throughout the country, the promoti9n
of qualitative improvement of such education in relation to planned quantitative growth a d

GUIDELINES FOR ADMISSION UNDER LATERAL ENTRY ffO
DEGREE ENGINEERING PROGRAMMES. (The Gazette of In ia,
July 11, 1992, G.S.R.320) FOR DIPLOMA HOLDERS IN
ENGINEERING/TECHNOLOGY

ALL INDIA COUNCIL FOR TECHNICAL EDUCATION


NEW DELHI

Although Engineering diploma programmes are conceived as terminal in nature, some fle ibility
has to be built in, to enable the meritorious amongst diploma: holders to obtain Eng· ering
degrees. There is evidence that diploma holders pursuing an Engineering programm havt'
performed well not only in their academic careers but also in their jobs.

A student who has acquired a diploma in Engineering through a minimum of three y ars ol
institutional study, after lO+(Secondary School Leaving Certificate Examination) an be
considered to be academically equivalent to a student who has passed the first year of e four
year Engineering degree programme for which the qualifying examination is of the 12th level.

Lateral entry for diploma holders will be allow~d in the second year third semester level] Seats
in addition to the sanctioned intake at first year level, limited to a maximum of 10% will be
reserved for such students.

At present, students obtain diploma through d. ifferent programmes in different StatefUTs.


Such programmes have different structures such as the semester pattern, annual P_fttern,
sandwich pattern, etc. In order to maintain uniformity, a common entrance examinatioJ at the
State level seems essential. Further, it is necessary to select only meritorious students wh have
passed the diploma with good academic record.

For being eligible to seek lateral entry to an Engineering degree programme at the secon
third semester level, a candidate must have passed the diploma in EngineeFing in the r levant
branch with a minimum of 60 percent in the aggregate. Only candidates fulfilling these confiitions
would be eligible for appearing in the entrance test meant for selection of diploma hol~ers for
Lateral entry to degree programmes. The selection of candidates will be based on a Sta1e level
entrance test, the merit ranking in the test being the basis of admission. I
I )iploma holde rs admi tted to degre e progr amm es throu
gh lateral entry will be provi ded with
()pportunities for maki ng up their deficiencies throu gh remedial
courses offered for this purpo se.
These stude nts will have to successfully complete such remedial
courses withi n the stipu lated
ti me.
