Karnataka Higher Education Minister Dr M.C. Sudhakar, in view of growing violations among state private institutions (offering engineering and technical courses), in a letter dated September 14, 2023, sought All India Council for Technical Education (A.I.C.T.E.) intervention to curb the unscientific and abnormal increase of seats in such institutions for different engineering courses.

Minister expressed need for the state government to control the increase of seats in state private institutions (in I.T. related courses) and decrease of seats (in traditional courses) in engineering or technology by fixing the limit for minimum and maximum seats in a particular course or programme which they can offer. In addition, the minister also sought restrictions or ban on starting new engineering colleges or universities with professional courses mainly in metro or tier 1 cities for the next two to three years.

Minister also suggested A.I.C.T.E. penalise for violation of Norms and Requirement (Standards) to curb abnormal changes in number of seats and to make state government permission (no-objection certificate) as a compulsory requirement for increase or decrease or course intake or course similar to starting of new college or closure of college before proceeding for A.I.C.T.E. recommendation.
