Pune: Colleges offering engineering, pharmacy, hotel management and other courses have written to the State Technical Education Directorate (DTE) in order to increase the intake to cater to the economically weakest segments (SAP) category rules set by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE).
DTE officials said many colleges are already facing low enrollment, resulting in vacancies at the end of the admissions round.
The Association of Management of Unaided Institutes in Rural Area wrote to DTE on June 14 stating that AICTE rule was being followed in Maharashtra regarding reservation of EWS seats.
The association’s founding president, Ramdas Zol, said: “The applications for all the vocational course entrance tests were the best ever this year. Therefore, the competition is going to be tough for every seat. We asked the DTE to follow the AICTE rules and do justice to the students.
According to the AICTE regulations, the institutes are authorized to increase the authorized annual enrollment starting from the academic year 2019-20. The program should be applicable to all accredited technical institutions offering degree, post-graduation, undergraduate, MCA, MBA, PGDM programs and side-entry provisions of these programs.
