Across the state, 63 institutes offer the course. “We will give a model curriculum that will ensure that there is a certain standard and quality in the syllabus,” said Prabhat Sahoo, director, AICTE, western region.

“Also, the examination pattern will be given by the council,” said Sahoo added. “Colleges, of course, can improvise on the curriculum and pattern as they require.” But colleges are no too happy about this interference in the curriculum.
