List of private technical institutions which opted to “Shut Operations” from 2017

This year, 122 private engineering colleges in the country have opted for progressive closure. This essentially means that these colleges would not be conducting any fresh admissions from 2017 onwards and would close once the existing batches complete. This news comes on the back of reports of a decline in the admissions across various Engineering Colleges in the country. A total of 122 private engineering colleges have opted for progressive closure, reports the AICTE. This is troublesome when the HRD Ministry is clearly pushing STEM Education. Below is a list of the 122 private unaided colleges that have opted for progressive closure since 2016-17.

“Failing to survive, private engineering colleges either seek progressive closure to ultimately shut down or turn into polytechnic or science and art colleges. Since the best lot of students takes admission in prestigious colleges like IITs, NITs and other centrally funded institutions, the others left in the fray settle for private colleges. The low number of enrollments makes it difficult for institutions to survive,” a senior AICTE official said.

Going by numbers, three years ago the sudden decline in admission across engineering colleges in the country had given rise to concern. Private colleges with over 600 engineering seats had recorded a low of 143 admissions in the year 2013-14. The numbers seemed to revive in the following years but not by a big margin. On a whole, the picture continued to be grim for private engineering colleges in the country. The report released yesterday by PTI further confirmed the on-going battle of meeting expenses of these private engineering colleges. This comes after this years’ budget that indicated an increased investment towards STEM Courses. Check the list of colleges below.

The List* has been sourced from All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) website. It has 23 engineering colleges in Pune, Nagpur, Aurangabad, Jalgaon and Kolhapur and other areas of Maharashtra closed down during the 2016-17 session. The reason stated by these private engineering colleges was the declining number of admissions which made it almost impossible for them to maintain operative costs. Fifteen engineering colleges in Gujarat, 7 in Telangana, 11 in Karnataka, 12 in Uttar Pradesh, 6 in Punjab, 11 in Rajasthan and 13 in Haryana closed down during the period. It was reported that over 8 lakh Engineering seats had remained vacant in 2014-15
