According to the study of All India Council for Technical Education, over 60% of eight lakh engineers graduating from technical institutions across the country every year remain unemployed. The survey mentioned that only 1% of engineering students participate in summer internships and just 15% of engineering programmes offered by over 3,200 institutions are accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA). To fill the skill gap, the ministry of human resource development is planning a major revamp of India's technical education. As per the strategy, government is planning to create a single Entrance Examination for Technical Institutions from January 2018, linking annual teacher training as a must for approval of the institution, mandatory induction training to enrolled students and annual revision of curriculum.

According to the latest report, NEET (for admission to engineering programmes) will be the first exam to be conducted by the National Testing Service (NTS), which will be completely computer-based. As per the NEET the exams will be conducted multiple times a year. As per the schedule, NEET exam is likely to be conducted for December 2017-January 2018, followed by another one in March 2018 and the third on May 2018. As per the official sources NTS will also conduct entrance test for IIT. The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) with association of MHRD, has also set broad targets for raising the standards of technical education, which includes immediate improvement of employability to 60% from the current 40%, and to ensure that 75% of the students get industry exposure in the form of summer internships. The institutions are making changes in curriculum every year and the process shall be completed in the month of December and AICTE asked institutions to prepare for an action plan to implement all these initiations along with the financial implications before June 2017.
