TEC has she made a good decision by signing an agreement with the AIU in 2013? The Indian government is not going to mince the trial of this institution whose purpose is to evaluate the courses and programs of foreign universities and find their equivalence in relation to the various courses offered by Indian universities.
This is a senior officer of the Indian government, Anandakrishnan, who wrote a report to identify the shortcomings of the institution of higher education. " The AIU has lost its way and is drifting along aimlessly and that it has become a non entity in the higher education system "
The report has also just point the finger at the lack of interaction of the AIU, either the Indian government or the UGC which is the regulatory body of universities in Great Peninsula. In addition, the committee set up and chaired by Anandakrishnan also ordered to suspend all agreements AIU. " The practice of giving equivalence certificates to post graduate diploma of management should be suspended in view of potential for its misuse till UGC approves the process ». For the Indian government committee is due to "lack of leadership" AIU that the situation eventually cause the " main structural weaknesses of AIU". The recruitment policy of the AIU also been severely criticized. According to the report, several positions were filled without resorting to interviews.
" Some senior position never appeared for interview but got promoted by manipulation and nepotism." In addition to these recruitment "doubtful" Anandakrishnan denounces the large number of vacancies left for several years, including those of Director, Deputy Director, Assistant Director and Senior Research Assistants.
These criticisms of the AIU come and challenge the decision of the TEC have used this institution to address the problem of Indian universities affiliate who do not have the right to operate on the Mauritian soil. These universities are the Eastern Institute for Integrated Learning Management (EIILM), JSS Academy, Global Business Solution, Arya Sabha and Mauras.
In addition, the speed at which the TEC has decided to sign this agreement with the AIU calls. It is our responsibility that the TEC had already signed an agreement with the AIU since 2010 which is supposed to end in 2015. "What could possibly have motivated the TEC to sign a new agreement in 2013 when the agreement ended two years later? "Some ask. Another issue that arises in the midst of higher education is whether TEC has successfully done its 'homework' on the AIU who happens to be a private institution.
