Chandigarh: 17 technical institutions in Haryana have been found conducting programmes without approval of AICTE, a statutory body established for proper planning and co-ordinate development of technical education.  

The Directorate of Technical Education, Haryana, has issued a revised list of technical institutions conducting technical programmes without approval of All India Council for Technical Education, an official release said on Thursday.

The department cautioned and advised the students, their parents and general public not to take admission in the unapproved or bogus institutions, as some bogus universities, colleges and institutions were duping the students by charging hefty fees and issuing bogus degrees or certificates, it said.

It said students seeking admission in any of the technical institutions must first check the status of approval of the institutions on the websites www.aicte-india.org and www.techeduhry.nic.in.

As per the revised list issued on July 17, 2012, as many as 17 institutions were conducting technical programmes without AICTE's approval.

These included Algol School of Management and Technology, Gurgaon, Ansal Institute of Technology, Sector-55, Gurgaon, College of Hospitality and Tourism, and ICAII Institute of Management and Technology, Mohali Campus, Phase-7, among others, according to the release.
