AICTE releases Revised Academic Calendar, Engineering, Technical programme classes begins from 25th October


AICTE Academic Calendar: The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has announced a revised calendar for engineering and technical institutes, according to the latest reports. Classes for new students in engineering and technical colleges will begin on October 25th, according to the revised academic timetable. Classes for the existing batch will commence on October 1, 2021. Adv Harish Pandey offered this revised calendar to the Supreme Court. The amended AICTE academic calendar has been accepted by the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court established an academic calendar for engineering and technical admissions in 2012. This schedule is adhered to by all institutes and cannot be changed without the Supreme Court's authorization. The dates were chosen to account for the possibility of a third wave of COVID-19 as well as the results dates for several boards exams, particularly the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).


AICTE Revised Academic Calendar Dates: The authorities must complete the first round of counseling by September 30th, according to the new deadlines. By the 10th of October 2021, the second round of counseling will be completed. Seat cancellations and fee refund requests must be submitted before the 15th of October. Freshman classes will begin on October 25th, and classes for existing batches will begin on October 1st, 2021. All institutions have till October 20th to fill their vacant seats with freshmen.


AICTE Revised Academic Calendar Dates for Other Institutes: Admissions to standalone institutes for PGDM in management or certificate courses in management are due on August 11, 2021. Admissions to open and remote learning courses close on September 10, 2021. Admissions for open and distance learning courses, as well as courses delivered entirely online, will close on September 10th for the first session and February 1st for the second session.


Last Year's AICTE Academic Calendar: Admissions to these courses were also postponed last year. The reason for this was that the first wave of COVID-19 was at its peak, and AICTE had to alter the dates several times. During the previous year, the AICTE altered the schedule three times: first in August, then in October, and finally in November. Last year, the deadline for the start of school was December 1st, and students were allowed to withdraw their enrollment and receive a full refund until November 30th, 2020.


AICTE: For the first five years after its formation in 1988, the AICTE was chaired by the Minister for Human Resource Development of the Government of India, in accordance with the provisions of the AICTE Act (1987). On July 2, 1993, the first full-time Chairman was appointed, and the Council was reorganised in March 1994 for a three-year term. In 1994-95, the Executive Committee was reconstituted, and the All India Board of Studies and Advisory Boards were established. The Ministry of Human Resource Development's regional offices in Kolkata, Chennai, Kanpur, and Mumbai were transferred to AICTE on October 1, 1995, and the staff working in these offices were also deputed to the Council on foreign service conditions. In each of the four areas, these offices served as secretariats for regional committees (North, East, West, and South). On July 27, 1994, three additional regional committees were formed in the southwest, central, and northwest areas, with secretariats in Bangalore, Bhopal, and Chandigarh, respectively. On March 8, 2007, a new regional committee in the South-Central area was announced, with a secretariat in Hyderabad.
