NEP: No more admissions this year in technical courses in regional languages, only 15% seats filled

Not more admissions this year in technical courses in regional languages ​​(signal picture)

Under the New National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, technical education has also been started in the regional language. The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has allowed 20 colleges across the country to offer engineering courses in regional languages. Out of 20 colleges, 10 colleges chose Hindi for engineering course and the rest opted for Marathi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada. AICTE has prepared books for first year undergraduate courses in 5 regional languages ​​i.e. Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali and Marathi. At the same time, first year books in eight regional languages ​​have also been prepared for diploma students.

Officials said that this year there have been very disappointing admissions in technical colleges starting courses in regional languages. In some colleges only 15% to 30% seats are filled. But according to the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA), till Monday 17 students had applied for the 30 government quota seats reserved for engineering in Kannada. The counseling session is yet to start in the state.

There is a lack of awareness among the students

Officials say that this is just the beginning, gradually the incentive will increase, even though only a few students are choosing it now, but at least colleges are coming forward. And AICTE is making every effort to provide students an option to study engineering courses in regional languages. It may be that people have not yet got enough information about this where the number of people is more. There is a need to spread awareness about this among the people on a large scale. So that students can choose these courses till next year. According to college officials, many parents and students are hesitant to pursue engineering courses in regional languages.

Worry about job after doing course in regional language

Dinesh Goel, director of Poornima Institute of Engineering and Technology in Jaipur, which is offering a BTech course in computer engineering in Hindi this year. He said that so far only 15% of the 60 seats have been filled. This response is not as expected. It seems that we could not tell the students about the structure of the syllabus properly. There are still many doubts among the students. Computer science students are not convinced that they can do programming part in Hindi. Moreover, they are worried about what will happen next in the industry after the course. We are expecting that the regional language courses will become more popular in the coming years.
