COIMBATORE: The fate of over 400 applications to start new technical education institutions in the country will be decided by the Standing Appellate Committee of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) in the coming week.

The AICTE has started online application process for starting new technical education institutions, including engineering and technology, pharmacy, architecture, town planning, applied arts and crafts, management, MBA, PGDM, HMCT and MCA degree programmes, from January 21.

The apex regulatory body for technical education has received hundreds of application for starting technical education institutions.

From this, the AICTE has rejected 408 applications from trusts and societies to start new technical education institutions for various reasons. This includes 21 applications to start new technical education institutions in Tamil Nadu.

These trusts and societies were given another chance to appeal against the AICTE decision and told to appear before the Standing Appellate Committee from April 12 to 15.

Apart from this, the Standing Appellate Committee of the AICTE will also hear the case of 40 applications for change in site of the institution, which was also rejected by the apex body.

In addition to this, the Standing Appellate Committee will also look into

six applications for converting women only institutions into coeducation institutions.

Those applications rejected by the Standing Appellate Committee of the AICTE will not have the chance to start new technical education institutions during this academic year. They have to apply afresh during the next academic year to start their institutions.

Meanwhile, the Standing Appellate Committee of the AICTE will also look into the cases of 176 existing technical education institutions in the country, including at least 17 from Tamil Nadu, which have applied for closure of their institutions.
