Read Complete Issue of AMIE Recognition with MHRD, AICTE:-
AMIE Recognition Issue is a burning topic now among AMIE Students. Complete events of AMIE Recognition are clearly explained in the following paragraphs with important MHRD orders. Here is the present status of the AMIE Recognition Issue and its latest status as of now. Also, I have added uploaded images of relevant MHRD Orders.
History of AMIE Recognition with MHRD:-
1. MHRD recognized AMIE until now, as there was no regulator in place to do this job. Check the Recognition in www.ieindia.org. Check the following Images of the recognition. (I have received this same copy from IEI along with the final AMIE Graduation Equivalent Certificate). (Probably IEI is sending with AMIE certificate so that AMIE Holders can show it to employers)
2. MHRD also released a clarification notification clarifying the above notification dated 16 Jan 2006. It states that AMIE is valid for the purpose of employment in central government. Check Image below:-
3. These two MHRD Notifications are the lifeline for AMIE (these notifications prove AMIE has MHRD Recognition. In courts these two are the valid documents that can prove about AMIE Recognition with MHRD).
How the AMIE Recognition was withdrawn?
6. MHRD started the process of bringing all technical education under roof (under AICTE). It started by withdrawing recognition of courses like AMIE/IETE/IME etc.
MHRD also released warning notification about the withdrawal of recognition by notification dated 10 Jul 2012 (shown below). MHRD totally withdrawing itself from approving/recognizing technical education in distance mode and handed over to AICTE. It asked all such Institutions to align their courses as per NVEQF (a new skill-based vocational certification system in the flexible mode as per international trends) and apply for fresh approval of AICTE. It’s clearly mentioned in this MHRD order not to take any fresh admissions before getting fresh approval.
However, no action was taken by any of the Institutes AMIE/IETE/IME. Finally, MHRD released the Order about the withdrawal of recognition of all such types of courses.
7. It clarified that Students enrolled up to 31 May 2013 are eligible for employment as an AMIE Graduate. Check the MHRD Order Below:-Approximately one year before releasing the final notification regarding Nonrecognition of AMIE/IETE/IME etc, MHRD has finally withdrawn recognition.
8. MHRD withdrawn recognition and now AICTE to handle it. First of all, there is a conflict to recognize engineering in nonregular mode, as AICTE doesn’t approve nonregular courses engineering.
9. AICTE wants to frame new rules for engineering in distance mode or they want the institute to align with NVEQF (a new skill-based vocational certification system in the flexible mode as per international trends).
AMIE Recognition Issue is pending in Delhi High Court
10. IEI filed a Writ petition in Delhi high court against MHRD notifications dated 10 Jul 2012 and 06 Dec 2012. Delhi High Court accepted the case of Institutes vs. UGC/AICTE and said that notifications issued by MHRD dated 10 Jul 2012 and 06 Dec 2012 will be subject to final outcome of the court case.
How to check the Present Status of AMIE Recognition Issue Case
11. Presently AMIE Recognition Issue in Delhi High court but MHRD says he is now no more involved in this type of education so UGC/AICTE will fight case against institutes like IEI, AESI, ICE. Case is pending in Delhi High Court and the next date of hearing is on 25 Apr 2017, so You can check the current status of the case (Court Case No. WP(C)-3790 – 2013 from the in following link).

The possible outcome of the AMIE Recognition Issue Court Case
12. If AMIE/IETE/IME wins the court case, either MHRD will recognize these courses (as it is with the present syllabus) or the court will ask AICTE/UGC to grant approval for AMIE/IETE/IME (whatever the case may be).
13. If AMIE/IETE/IME loses the court case ( chances are very Less), as a result, these institutes will be asked to apply for fresh approval from AICTE/UGC. So IEI will apply for fresh approval by aligning AMIE Syllabus as per new AICTE guidelines. This is also a positive point about this. In either case, AMIE will get AICTE/UGC approval which will resolve problems of proving AMIE as equivalent to BE/ BTech.
14. In Conclusion of this topic finally, I want to say is AMIE is going to get AICTE Approval in Future.
