Shri Kapil Sibal, Union Minister for Human Resource Development inaugurated, here today, a new web-based application for the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) that will provide for the information and data as filled in by the institutions to be available in the Public Domain. This is a bid to promote transparency and accountability in its functioning. Interested stake holders can thus view the information pertaining to any institution in the Public Domain.
The AICTE has also implemented Business Intelligence Report which will provide complete current statistics pertaining to issues like courses, programmes, faculty, students etc. in the Public Domain and in Real Time. This is expected to improve transparency and also provide useful information to the general public and all stake holders.
AICTE has further introduced SMS Service that will inform and update the status of the applications made under various categories to AICTE for approval. The intent again is to make the progress of the application transparent as it is processed for approval at AICTE.
