BANGALORE: Beware: 169 institutes are offering courses without AICTE’s permission and 104 collaborating with foreign universities without its consent. The All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), through a public notice, has warned students against joining these institutes.

“They are cautioned that joining unapproved programmes can have serious consequences in terms of eligibility for employment, higher studies etc. Students desirous of joining any technical programme of any institution must confirm the status of approval…,” K Narayana Rao, member-secretary, AICTE, has stated.

Karnataka alone is home for 21 such technical institutes.

As per the AICTE Act (52) of 1987, approval is mandatory for any institution offering technical education programmes in engineering and technology, management, computer applications, architecture and town planning, pharmacy, hotel management and catering technology, applied arts and craft in India with or without foreign university collaboration.

The AICTE has also listed nine institutes which have tied up with foreign universities in Karnataka without its nod. Most of these institutes are offering twinning degrees, dual degrees in management, engineering in collaboration with universities in the US, the UK and France.

AICTE, while admitting that the list is not exhaustive, has asked students to confirm the status of approval before seeking admission at its regional offices in Bangalore, Bhopal, Chennai, Chandigarh, Kanpur, Kolkata and Mumbai.

The entire list of approved and unapproved institutes has been uploaded on its website www.aicte.ernet.in Visvesvaraya Technological University, which administers approved engineering and management colleges, was quick to act.

“We have written letters to the state government to take action against colleges which are not affiliated to VTU or any recognised university,” M S Shivakumar, VTU registrar, said. Colleges, however, are not panicking.

“One of the reasons we did not seek affiliation was that we were exploring various options including seeking deemed university status.We are aware of the rules and most of the courses are industry-recognised,” Subhash Sharma, dean, Indian Business Academy, which is offering unapproved courses told TOI

Revised UPCPMT 2007 Results Declared

June 21st, 2007

Lucknow, June 21: The revised results of the Uttar Pradesh Combined Pre-Medical Test (CPMT) have been declared here today.

The results were declared by the Veer Bahadur Singh Poorvanchal University Vice-Chancellor Prof. K P Singh at a press conference.“I take the entire responsibility for the errors in the CPMT results. But let me tell you, such errors are nor uncommon and were once detected even in the IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) entrance examination,” Singh said in defence.


The re-evaluated results were different from the results announced earlier, Singh said.
According to the list released Thursday, as many as 53,735 candidates have passed this time, against 15,088 earlier.

“The difference is attributable to feeding of wrong keys in the computers,” said Misra, adding that revision of results had affected about 75 percent of the candidates.

About 80,000 candidates had appeared in the examination seeking admission in different medical colleges in the state, having a capacity of about 1,500 seats. These also included the aryurvedic and homeopathic institutions.

Significantly, Manvi Dua, who had topped the examination as per the earlier result, was now placed in the 20th position. Similarly, those who had figured among the top 20 in the previous result were now actually far down in the list.


The re-evaluation was conducted when medical aspirants stage violent protest after major irregularities came to the fore.

As part of an immediate damage control move, the state government promptly instituted a high-level probe into the alleged discrepancies in the results.

The trouble was sparked by the university’s decision to do away with the established practice of releasing answer-sheets and detailed mark-sheets of all unsuccessful candidates.

Also, an alteration in the system of evaluation was stated to have created major anomalies in the results.
