According to the revised academic calendar, the classes for the existing students of technical courses in all affiliated colleges will commence from August 16, 2020.
AICTE Revised Academic Calendar 2020 is Out! The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) released the revised academic calendar for all the universities, colleges and academic institutions imparting technical and management education across the country. According to the revised academic calendar, the classes for the existing students of technical courses in all affiliated colleges will commence from August 16, 2020. The teaching process including lateral entry to second-year courses for newly admitted students will start from September 15. The calendar is in continuation of AICTE’s earlier communications where it announced the initial academic calendar defining dates for academic activities for the Academic Year 2020-21 in the wake of corona-virus outbreak. However, the Council decided to revise the calendar again as per the directives released by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).
According to the directives released by MHA, all academic institutions, colleges and universities will remain closed until July 30 due to the rising novel corona-virus cases in India. Earlier, AICTE also asked institutes to grant provisional admissions to PGDM and PGCM i.e. Certificate and Diploma Programmes in Management Courses, in wake of ongoing corona-virus crisis in the country. While AICTE is ready with the revised academic calendar, the University Grants Commission is yet to make an announcement with revised UGC Examination Guidelines and Academic Calendar 2020.
