AICTE Lowers bar for Polytechnic Students

The All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) has allowed students scoring 35% and above in Class X to apply for polytechnic courses, beginning this year, lowering it from 50%. But even as polytechnic admissions commenced on Wednesday 22nd June, the state government is yet to give its approval for the same to students in the state. Students with only above 50% in SSC are now eligible for the course, and the government has to announce a new policy before June 27 to change that.

AICTE Lowers bar for Polytechnic Students

Dayanand Meshram, joint director in-charge for polytechnic admissions, said, the admissions have already begun, but the government is yet to take a decision on the AICTE relaxation. If the decision is in favour of students, they will be given time to apply.

A principal of a polytechnic institute said, the move will definitely benefit students who have scored very less in SSC exams. Last year, close to 30,000 students were disappointed after the CAP rounds. Such an opportunity for low scorers would definitely help students and prevent dropouts. However, the state should implement it soon. S. S. Mantha, in-charge director of AICTE said, The AICTE has relaxed the eligibility for polytechnic admissions and all affiliated institutes will have to follow the norm.


Admission Schedule:

The sale of information brochure and application kit at designated ARCs: June 22nd to July 3rd Submission of online application form on June 22nd to July 3rd Confirmation of application form and document verification in person at ARC: June 27th to July 4th display of provisional merit list on website: July 6th Submission of grievances at ARC where form is confirmed: July 7 Display of final merit list on website: July 11.
