Corruption in Education (AICTE)

AICTE (All India Council of Technical Education) , the technical arm who gives approvals on behalf of Government of India for Technical colleges and courses is in limelight due to suspension of its Chairman over corruption case and nearly three dozen office has been sent back to their parent cadres. The step has been taken by HRD ministry so that no influence happens in investigations. CBI (Central Bureau of Investigations) is probing a case of demanding money for increase in intake of seats against some AICTE officials.

This incident shows that corruption is rooted deeply in our system and I know that in last 2-3 years so many engineering colleges opened in Delhi & Haryana. I knows that that big amount and handsome gifts had been given to officials for approval of Colleges even when they are not fulfilling the infrastructure, faculty, other required norms. It is very sad that we want to make India Super Power but our institutes which will give us the future army for work is not at par with world class institutes. This is the reason that we are still behind others. It is only a small hole in Indian Education System which had been noticed, many others are still under cover.

IIT and IIM are only Indian institutes recognized world wide. I think currently we don't need some small technical college on every corner of street but some world class institutions who can train our young force and able to really produce the army of future with a great knowledge.

At last i will say lets see what happens and how government transforms AICTE, i feel that recommendations of Prof. Yashpal Committee is right and must be implemented on priority basis.
