Moreover, this move will also ensure that the students get better attention from their teacher and it will also increase the employment in the teaching sectors as the colleges will now have to hire more teachers. Chairman of All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) Anil Sahasrabudhe stated that professional courses need to focus more on quality research and while some institutes might have some limitations, deemed and autonomous colleges get a special status because they expect them to better the quality of education they impart. 

AICTE has also imposed a deadline on the approval of courses by institutes, stating that technical institutes should have at least 60 per cent of their courses accredited in the next three years in order to avoid repercussions.

At a recent event in Mumbai University's Kalina Campus, State Higher and Technical Education Minister Uday Samant stated that events across all educational institutes in Maharashtra should start with a national anthem.

He further said that that this, in turn, will evoke a feeling of patriotism among the youth and asserted that the system of singing the national anthem is followed in theatres, so why not institutes?

Uday Samant, who represents Ratnagiri's Sangmeshwar constituency was invited as a chief guest at the event said that Marathi is our mother tongue and we should have a sense of pride towards it. In order to preserve it, Universities should put their name in Marathi script too.  A directive in this decision will be sent to education institutes soon and will be applicable to all colleges, universities, engineering and medical institutes in the state.
