Based on “sympathetic considerations,” the council has requested the institutes to enable these students to finish their degrees.
All associate institutions have been requested by the All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) to explore permitting the halfway or lateral entrance of students who are unable to continue in engineering or other degree programmes. On the basis of “sympathetic considerations,’ the council has requested the institutes to enable these students to finish their degrees.
“NEP 2020 already allows for multiple entry-multiple departures,” according to the council, “by crediting courses completed in the Academic Bank of Credit and using it later, in the same location or elsewhere.”
Similarly, testimonials have been received from students selected for prestigious organisations such as the National Defense Agency (NDA) and other notable organisations where physical fitness is a major concern. In the event of an unlucky injury that necessitates surgery, the applicant is judged partially unfit and must be boarded out of the organisation on medical grounds.
AICTE said, “These candidates also pursue their Diploma, BA, BSc, BTech, and MTech courses simultaneously with the service from the same organisation but are unable to complete them in such circumstances. “The move also applies to people who were accepted into the NDA or comparable defense schools but were unable to finish their training due to medical reasons.
In addition, the council said, “In view of the above unforeseen unfortunate circumstances, it is requested that criteria for sympathetic consideration of such genuine cases for admission through lateral entry may be explored at an appropriate level in your esteemed institutions, which shall be immensely helpful for such deserving students seeking admission midway to reshape their career.”
