7. Setting up more higher education institutions is important: President

The President of India, Pranab Mukherjee has said that setting up of more and more institutions to impart higher education is important. In fact, the Ministry of Human Resource Development has announced that 22 new higher education institutions will be established. These are six new IITs, seven new IIMs, three IISERs four new Central Universities/Tribal Universities and one NIT as well as an IIIT spread over several states in the country. It is however equally essential that with the physical expansion of educational infrastructure, the education imparted to our students should also be of a high quality. The Government is also taking proactive steps to ensure that students receive the required knowledge and skills that are essential to meet new needs. An important decision taken recently in this regard is the setting up of a National Ranking Framework for higher educational institutions. I hope this will generate healthy competition amongst our institutions for excellence, including IIMs.

10. AICTE takes lenient view of DU B. Tech colleges

The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has decided to take a lenient stand on the contentious issue of granting approval to DU-affiliated colleges for conducting Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) courses. AICTE's decision will come as a respite for 27 colleges offering courses on Electronics, Computer Science, Food Technology, Polymer Science and Instrumentation, as the regulatory body had only last week announced a six-hour deadline for filing affidavits for approval of conducting B.Tech courses. The deadline, termed "impractical" by several college principals, has been deferred till the review of the case is completed by AICTE.
