Tamil Nadu Engineering Colleges Increased Intake Will Add 40k More Seats


At the time when engineering colleges are crying for student enrollment to their B.E courses, AICTE has sanctioned 40,000 more seats in Tamil Nadu Engineering colleges. There are an approximate of 230,000 engineering seats in the state already, the 40k additional seats will make it to 270,000 engineering seats.

Approximately 30% of the seats remained vacant last year and as per reports more colleges are seeking AICTE intervention to allow them to have a smooth shut down. Though only two colleges from the entire Tamil Nadu applied for closure this year chances are that the number might increase in the next few years.

For the 270,000 seats (approximately) only 185,000 students are competing,  this year 185k students have registered for Tamil Nadu Engineering single window counseling close to 40% seats are already left out. It could pretty well push lower rung engineering colleges in Tamil Nadu for a closure in the years to come.

What is your take? Should AICTE take appropriate measures to ensure supply doesn’t over weigh demand!
