The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has revised the academic calendar for the session 2020-2021 and the updated schedule has been uploaded on the council’s official website. This revision has been done due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
As per the new schedule, candidates can seek admissions and enroll in AICTE-approved technical universities till November 30, and the classes for newly admitted first-year engineering students will start from December 1.
The last date for getting admitted into technical courses offered by AICTE approved institutes was earlier October 20, but due to the ongoing pandemic situation, the last date has been revised and candidates can now seek admissions till November 30.
As per the statement by AICTE the classes for new students will be conducted in online, offline, or blended mode, as per the Covid-19 protocols.
If any institute has already started the classes for first-year students, AICTE has asked the institute to postpone it till December 1. For students who are due to appear for the final-year or final-semester exam, AICTE has asked its affiliated institutions to hold special classes.
“Due to prolonged emergent conditions in the Country and requests from various State Governments and ongoing admission process of llT’s and NIT’s, the Council has extended the last date of admission to first-year Engineering courses (UG and Diploma lateral entry) to 30th November 2020. Accordingly, the last date of commencement of classes of first-year is 01.12.2020,” the official statement noted.
