Maharashtra has the dubious honour of having the largest number of illegal institutes conducting technical and management courses, which have not been approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). A report submitted by the AICTE to the Union ministry of human resources and development led by Kapil Sibal says that of the 348 unapproved technical and management institutions across India, 75 are in Maharashtra. In other words, the state accounts for 22% of unapproved institutes in the country.
AICTE has now reportedly asked the state government to initiate criminal proceedings against erring institutions, which have around 4,000 engineering and management students on their rolls. By rule, all technical and management institutions across the country need to get an AICTE approval before conducting classes. A senior higher and technical education department official, however, said it is the responsibility of AICTE and the University Grants Commission to identify unapproved institutions. We get information on fake universities, illegal and unapproved technical and management colleges, etc and forward the data to AICTE, which is the competent authority. We have no authority to initiate proceedings against such institutions, he said. According to the official, AICTE has issued show cause notices to the managements of these unapproved institutions and have also cautioned students not to seek seats in the courses they offer. We have asked students to ensure that the institution they are seeking admission in has AICTEs seal of approval, and that the courses offered are recognized under the relevant laws, he said.
