AICTE’S TFWS SCHEME MADE MANDATORY FOR ALL TECHNICAL INSTITUTIONS

AICTE’s TFWS scheme made mandatory for all Technical Institutions

Tuition fee waiver scheme (TFWS) of All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) will be made mandatory in all the technical colleges. This scheme is for economically backward students including women and also for handicapped students.

This scheme was followed from April 2007 and it allowed a institutions like engineering, hospitality and pharmacy colleges to admit students under tuition fee waiver schemes in addition to the sanctioned number of students. If the From the next academic year, Tuition fee waiver scheme (TFWS) of All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) will be made mandatory in all the technical colleges. This scheme is for economically backward students including women and also for handicapped students.

This scheme was followed from April 2007 and it allowed a institutions like engineering, hospitality and pharmacy colleges to admit students under tuition fee waiver schemes in addition to the sanctioned number of students. If the number of sanctioned intake of students is 60, then 10 percent of seats can be filled under TFWS by the college.

This was not mandatory till now. It was upto the college to decide whether to take students under the scheme or not. Now AICTE is making it mandatory and it has reduced the number of students’ intake under TFWS scheme from 10% to 5%.

This scheme was part of many other changes in AICTE norms which are to be followed from academic year 2011-2012. Kapil Sibal, the HRD minister announced these changes recently including the norms for opening new technical institutions.

As per the new norms, XII students who have studied vocational or technical subjects from the state board can secure lateral entry to second-year diploma courses. Also, BSc degree holders can get second-year lateral entry to the engineering course and they will have additional subjects like engineering graphics and engineering mechanics.

Hi Akshay, in tfws quota your tuition fees gets reduced. For example if a college has 120000 fees then around 1 lakh is the tuition fees so it will be waived and u have to pay only 20000. Type for the question. I hope u would be satisfied.
