0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

This is in reference to the information appeared in AICTE’s Approval Process Handbook for 2018-19 published on 15/12/2017 [     that   "The All India Council for Technical Education is changing the teacher-student ratio in engineering colleges to 1:20".  With Higher staff student ratio, it is unlikely that institutions can produce the high quality of engineers and technologists and the quality of education and research will suffer.  With higher faculty student ratio, the faculty cannot put more concentration on the students. Taking this changed ratio as advantage, some private managements may terminate many number of faculty members suddenly and this will create lot of unemployment problem in the country. Therefore, perhaps the only way to increase the availability of highly qualified engineers and technologists in the country is to keep proper faculty student ratio thereby alleviating the shortage of well qualified manpower. Keeping proper student ratio will enable (1). Better delivery( teaching and learning) of concepts as we are getting average students .(2).faculty may concentrate on Research and publications (3).Good discipline/ moral values will be inculcated among students thereby appearing Engineering graduates in police stations for constable posts will be minimized. (4).Smooth functioning of department / college in all other administrative aspects such as preparing for NBA, NAAC, Autonomous status , university and other different inspections.

      Hence, AICTE should withdraw  proposal of 1:20 faculty/student ratio and keep the existing norms of faculty student ratio (1:15)  in Engineering colleges in India from 2018-19 academic year also.
