With the time for admission to colleges having arrived, there is often confusion in the minds of students regarding which colleges to join and the courses to be taken up. To help the students make an informed decision on the choice of college and the courses, the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India has developed a “Know Your College” portal.
The portal was launched by the President of India on 11th November, 2014 to help prospective students make informed selection of a college. This portal covers almost 10,500 colleges which conduct about 14,000 programs in Technical Education and 35000 colleges conducting at least 20,000 programs in Non-Technical education. It is a repository of information pertaining to colleges and information related to its faculty, labs, library, infrastructure, and availability of hostel facilities etc. Students are encouraged to send their complaints on discrepancies of information provided by colleges through this portal.
This portal is being maintained by AICTE and is available to the public at www.knowyourcollege-gov.in. It is a single stop destination for students for making an informed choice.
