550 new colleges to be established in Maharashtra

Maharashtra State Commission for Higher Education and Development (MAHED) has accepted the perspective plans of non-agricultural state universities for 2019-20. With this, the state is likely to see 550 new colleges in the next academic year. Out of these 550 colleges, 60 new colleges will be set up under the University of Mumbai.

The government has also granted permission for setting the colleges for the skill-based courses. As per the Maharashtra Public Universities Act, universities have to prepare an annual perspective plan and propose new slots for the colleges based on the need in the respective areas. "The universities have to set up goals and gauge the demand for courses in their areas before proposing new colleges," said an official.

The higher and technical education department vetted this plan which was then presented to MAHED, led by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. Till date, Mumbai that has more than 770 affiliated colleges has been allowed to start 63 new colleges.

The official stated, "In the new perspective plan, there is an increased focus on skill development based on the demand in the industry. Apart from professional courses, there will be colleges offering courses like naval architecture and marine engineering."
