AICTE directs students not to spit on campus

The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has asked institutes under it to stop students from spitting on their campuses to ensure that they do not spit in public in the future.

The move is part of the Swachh Bharat (Clean India) campaign rolled out by the Centre on October 2, 2014. “The flagship programme of the Government of India has received enormous support from all technical institutions and is successfully being implemented,” AICTE chairman Anil D Sahasrabudhe noted in his letter to the principals and directors of engineering and other institutions offering technical programmes.

However, the practice of spitting in the open on the roadside “is still prevalent,” he noted. “One has to ensure change of the mindset and take preventive steps to stop this practice,” he said, asking the head of the institutions to take necessary steps in this regard.

The AICTE chief suggested that the heads of the institutions involve volunteers from the National Services Scheme, National Cadet Corps and other groups to start a campaign on their campuses against “the practice of spitting in the open.” “I am looking forward to your cooperation and support in creating mass awareness to stop this practice on the campuses,” he added.

A total of 10,330 technical institutes are functioning under the AICTE with more than 6.99 lakh teachers and 20.39 lakh students.
