The eligibility criteria for getting admission in engineering colleges have been relaxed by the AICTE. This is good news for those Engineering colleges in Maharashtra, which were finding difficulty in getting candidates for degree courses.

The minimum criteria has been lowered down to 45 per cent from 50 per cent aggregate in physics, chemistry and mathematics (PCM) group in standard XII exam. For reserved category, it has been lowered to just 40 per cent only.

The AICTE took this decision following its decision to lower the bar for polytechnic admissions to 35 per cent from 50 per cent in standard X exam from any board. An official close to the Director of Technical Education (Mumbai) said that the AICTE had taken this decision a couple of days back but the news is yet to reach them formally. So, they are planning to make changes only after getting official communication in this regard.

The last date of submission of forms is also likely to be extended if the new criterion is implemented.

The AICTE was forced to lower the eligibility criteria for the applicants applying for the engineering courses mainly because the demand for engineers was globally high but the field brought a poor response from the candidates. One more reason was that the fees of these courses were too high. Moreover, the students were not able to fulfill even the basic criteria of getting 50 per cent in PCM in class XII exams.
