The colleges that are on the verge of shutting down are now banking on skill development. They are hoping to use their physical infrastructure for starting skill development courses. “We have a building in place. But year on year, we failed to get the expected number of students. So we have applied for a closure. We will try to start a skill initiative,”said a functionary of an engineering college in Uttar Pradesh on the grounds of anonymity. The college does not plan to open admission for BTech this year.
