AICTE Blacklists 332 Engineering Colleges in the country

In its latest list, the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) has blacklisted 332 colleges in the country.

Criteria for Blacklisting:

The criteria for blacklisting are two:

1) Either the said institutions are conducting the courses without AICTE approval OR

2) If they once had affiliation from AICTE; have ceased to have one now, as AICTE revoked the recognition keeping in view the poor quality of education in these institutions. Thus right now these colleges are conducting courses without the affiliation.
