I want to know whether it is essential for an Open University to get AICTE approval.Some one just told me its not essential for open universities.I went through AICTE site but couldnt get any information regarding this. Please guide
-University Grants Commission of India Under section – 2(f)of the UGC Act
-Distance Education Council,Govt. of India, the regulatory apex body of ODL in India, from which the University receives grants for its different developmental activities
The University receives financial assistance from the State Government towards its maintenance and developmental activities
The uni is a member of :
-Association of Indian Universities (AIU)
-Association of Asian Open Universities (AAOU)
-Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU)
it does not hav aicte approval till date.
please throw some light
Technical Education provided by Open university must be accredited by competent body like AICTE/DOEACC/MCI...
It is also true if a collage run a particular technical course even if it is affiliation by some university covered by UGC
Associated body need not mean that they are an legal body or body with quasi statutory powers recognized by the government of India, where in case of UGC,HRD,DOEACC are a recognized accreditation provided by law/government
Kindly read the above statements along with the statements of arvind, hope this helps you
