After asking colleges to not hike fee for the upcoming educational session, the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has focused affiliated institutes to pay teachers income. In a recent notice, the authorities suggested institutes not to worsen the particular ‘national emergency’ by delaying or cancelling salary payments.
“AICTE continues to be receiving complaints that some of the organizations have not yet paid the income associated with faculty/staff for the month of March 2020 and in some cases even February 2020. Kindly note that this is a Nationwide Emergency as the whole country is usually under lockdown due to COVID-19 plus non-payment of salary to employees would lead to great stress as well as starvation to the families of some of the workers,” the notice read.
The governing entire body had earlier released a modified academic calendar for institutes by which it had suggested starting the particular admission process for the new program from August. It had furthermore suggested institutes to give admissions on the provisional basis in postgraduate degree courses to students whose answers are pending.
For final season students and those who had to make an application for internships this year, AICTE has modified its mandatory internship policy together asked colleges to ensure participation in digital internships. To compensate for the reduction, AICTE had also asked institutes to “give challenging problems as an internship to such students which can be worked upon by them from their respective homes.”
