India’s apex technical education regulator, the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), has shutdown over 750 technical education courses, the greatest number in Telangana and Tamil Nadu – the goal is to stem a decline in the quality of such education. Of these 757 technical and professional courses that have been allowed to shut, the majority of 556 were engineering courses, followed by 89 in pharmacy, 57 in computer application and 54 management, according to the regulator. In addition, some 83 colleges, including 46 management and 31 engineering colleges, have closed down so far this year.
