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.

Tuition Fee Waiver Scheme (TFW):

1) The scheme shall be applicable to all approved technical Institutions offering Bachelor Programs, diploma and post diploma program of Three/Four years duration.

2) Seats Up to Maximum 5% of sanctioned intake per course shall be available for these admissions. These seats shall be supernumerary in nature.

3) The competent Authority for admission shall be the same as for regular admissions.

4) The scheme shall be mandatory for all institutions approved by the council.

Eligibility Criteria:

1) Sons and daughters of parents whose annual income is less than Rs.2.50 lakhs from all sources shall only be eligible for seats under this scheme.

2) The waiver is limited to the tuition fee as approved by the state level fee committee for self-financing institutions and by the government for the Government and Government Aided Institutions. All another fee except tuition fees will have to be paid by the beneficiary.

Admission Procedure:

1) Under AICTE tuition fee waiver scheme, up to 5% of sanctioned intake per course shall be available for these admissions. These seats shall be supernumerary in Nature

2) The competent authority to effect this admission is the state Government or its designated Authority.

3) In the event of non-availability of students in this category, the same shall not be given to any other category of applications.

4) State Admission authority shall invite applications under this category, make a separate merit list for this category and effect admissions on the basis of the merit list so generated.

5) The institutions shall publish in their brochure and website the details of this scheme.

6) Competent Authority for admission shall submit a separate list of the students admitted under this category to the institute to which they are admitted for compliance.

7) A letter in this respect shall be issued by the competent authority for admission to each beneficiary student admitted under this scheme, and he/she shall not be allowed to change institution/course under any circumstance.

8) The institutions shall also display information regarding admitted candidates in their web sites for information to the students and other stakeholders.
