"According to the information furnished by the All India Council for Technical Education, it has approved one women's engineering college during the academic year 2014-15 in the name of 'New Horizon Institute of Technology and Management'," she said in a written reply in the Lok Sabha.
While AICTE has approved setting up of engineering college in Maharashtra, but Smriti Irani has announced that government is not providing any fund for this. The college is being set up by the New Horizon Education Society from its own funds.
