    FOREWORD The aim of higher education in India is to provide access, equity, and quality education at affordable cost to all aspiring citizens with transparency and accountability so as to ensure sustainable economic development of the nation. It is achieved through creation, transmission and dissemination of knowledge. The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has been in existence since November 1945 as a national level Apex Advisory Body and as a statutory body through an Act of Parliament in 1987 with its mission of developing and promoting quality technical education in the country in a coordinated and integrated manner. The Councils constant endeavor is to encourage a meaningful association between the technical education system and research and development activities in a concerted effort aimed at nation-building. Technical education at all levels is witnessing a distinct change in terms of improvement of the existing colleges in tune with the quality assurance norms set by the regulating and accreditation agencies. The Council believes in providing a proper impetus for the Institutions to generate competent Engineers, Pharmacists, Managers, Architects and Scientists and encourages them to think beyond the curriculum while imparting training for the advancement of knowledge. The Council has put in place several initiatives to bring about changes in the Approval Process by introducing greater transparency and accountability through the e-governance. The emphasis this year has been to simplify the procedures and greater ease in the approval process through informal and formal interactions with all stakeholders. The role of AICTE, as a true facilitator of quality technical education is evident from the changes made in the Approval Process Handbook along with revised Gazette Policy Regulation No. F.No: AB/AICTE/REG/2016 of AICTE dated November 30, 2016. This is expected to create an academic ambience in the Technical Institutions for nurturing and supporting quality so that technical education in India will be one of the best in the world. Supporting Institutions for Autonomy, Accreditation of Programmes, Ranking of Institutions, schemes such as Margdarshan, Adjunct Faculty, Trainee Teacher and Unnat Bharat Abhiyan, launching of Student Startup Policy 2016, SmartIndia Hackathon 2017, a MOOCs platform SWAYAM are a few of the important initiatives embarked upon by AICTE. The introduction of National Digital Depository for storing all students educational Certificates, all fee collections and scholarship disbursals through cashless digital means are major changes initiated by the Government of India and implemented by AICTE. This manual is an attempt to provide comprehensive information on the fair and rational system of administration as well as other necessary information on the processes involved under the aegis of the AICTE. The emphasis on e-governance to ensure transparency, accountability, implementing a tech-savvy approach to enable faster processing and clearly defining the infrastructural norms in Institutions are just a few pointers towards AICTEs efforts at fostering a technical education system which is on par with the best Institutions in the world. Swami Vivekananda said "Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man. In keeping with this objective, apart from regulatory role, AICTE shall continue to strive to be a true mentor, facilitator and enabler in bringing out the best in each Institution. We hope all the stakeholders of technical education shall also put in their best and make team India proud.
