AICTE has also asked institutions not to hike the admission or other fee for the academic year 2020-2021. The technical education council has directed institutes not to force the selected candidates to pay advance fees during the COVID-19 lockdown.

AICTE said institutions may start the session as per the new academic calendar through virtual classes. They can only shift to regular face to face mode after any such notification is issued by MHRD. It has asked institutes to promote first year students of 2019-2020 session whose exams could not be conducted due to the lockdown. The promotion will be based on University Grants Commission (UGC) guidelines.

Earlier this week, the UGC has released its new academic calendar and guidelines for universities.
