All India Council for Technical Education chief S S Mantha said the council had no plan to enforce dress code or introduce restrictions on the use of mobile phones in engineering colleges in India.

“We are only proposing to introduce self defence training for girl students in engineering and technical institutions across the country. The council will soon take a final decision and introduce this,” Mantha told Express on Sunday.

There was a report in the media that the AICTE was planning to enforce curbs on the usage of mobile phones by students, introduce a dress code, and ask engineering and technical institutions to install CCTV cameras in common areas to ensure safety of female students. With regard to mandating installation of CCTV cameras in engineering colleges, Mantha said,

“Already some educational institutions in the country have installed CCTV cameras.”
