AICTE’s TFW 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 backwards students including women and also for handicapped students.

This scheme was followed from April 2016, and it allowed the 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 up to 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 was already followed in Maharashtra from the academic year 2016. From 2016 the directorate of technical education (DTE), Maharashtra made the scheme mandatory for all government institutions. Now AICTE has made all institutions whether government or private to take students under TFWS.

This scheme was part of many other changes in AICTE norms which are to be followed from the academic year 2016. Kapil Sibal, the HRD minister, announced these changes 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.
