UGC not to approve new engineering colleges this year!

There will not be any approvals for new engineering college or even increase in seats at the existing engineering colleges and particularly for the coming academic year. The University Grants Commission has reportedly taken a decision this week, after its meeting held in Delhi. This could very well bring in some more changes in the engineering academics circuit.

AICTE reports have reportedly showed that several seats were left vacant in engineering colleges, and the notifications for the UGC (Affiliation of Colleges offering Technical Education by Universities) Regulations 2014 haven't come while as Supreme Court judgment, approvals should be finalised by the end of April.

UGC vice-chairperson H Devaraj has said that hence there is no time left now and also added that since it is a new process Universities and colleges will be in need of some more time to get familiar with it.

UGC officials also reportedly said that the body also didn't get many inquiries regarding starting new colleges due to the fact many of their students are unemployed, they have not been expressing interest in starting new colleges. But slowly the demand is growing for new arts and science courses.
