Under the circumstances, it has become imperative for the universities and UGC to evolve a suitable methodology to ensure that existing technical/engineering colleges affiliated to universities do not dilute standards of technical education imparted by them. 

In view of the above, UGC has prepared the draft Regulations on Technical and Professional Education hitherto regulated by AICTE. UGC has posted these Regulations on its website www.ugc.ac.in with a view to soliciting comments/ suggestions from the universities/colleges as well as other stakeholders.
