|Aicte withdraws approval of courses to Amity Business School, Noida|
|The All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) has decided to withdraw approval for conduct of PGDM (full time) and PGDM (part time) courses to Amity Business School Noida, from the academic year 2005-06. Consequent upon withdrawal of AICTE approval, the Council decided to transfer and distribute the students already admitted in the Amity Business School, among other approved institutions in the nearby locality.
The decision has been taken after the Expert Committees of AICTE visited Amity Business School of Noida on several occasions during the last few years and show cause notices had been issued for violating norms and standards set by the Council. Expert Committees visited Amity Business School, Noida recently on July 27, 2005 and August 5, 2005 and found serious deficiencies and violation of Norms and Standards. Amity Business School was also found to conduct large number of unapproved courses in the same premises (some even in collaboration with foreign universities which require mandatory approval from the AICTE) utilizing the facilities and infrastructure intended for AICTE approved courses, thus diluting the standards of education. As it is, the Institute has violated building laws and also lacks requisite built-up area as per AICTE norms. It was also found that the admission process followed by the Institute was not transparent and is involved in commercialization of education by charging exorbitant fee from students.
AICTE in exercise of its mandate to ensure maintenance of norms and standards insists on fulfillment of the minimum requirements prescribed for imparting technical education by institutions, so that quality of courses is not compromised. This body conducts Annual inspection and surprise inspection under Section 10 (p) of AICTE Act. Experts drawn from premier institutions participate in this exercise to identify violations of norms and standards. It conveys the deficiencies to the institutions for rectification. In spite of repeated advice to comply with minimum norms and standards, many institutions continue to be complacent about taking steps to remedy the deficiencies. This has evoked grave concern amongst all the stake holders.
