AICTE (All India Council of Technical Education) is going to shut down colleges which are operating below educational standards and impose restrictions on them in Punjab, Chandigarh and other states. According to SS Mantha, AICTE Chairman, “ He supports colleges with good potential but is against below standard colleges”. He said they are conducting surprise raids in the colleges, and institutions which are below standard will be closed down.
SS Mantha said that he is also concerned about the seats lying vacant at various engineering colleges in the country.
AICTE has also received application from some state governments not to sanction any more colleges as the existing ones are lying vacant.
