The court was hearing a PIL which urged the court to issue a direction to AICTE not to increase the number of seats of engineering colleges and from sanctioning new engineering colleges in the states where there are over 10000 vacancies.

Till end of 2012, the country had 37933 engineering colleges with 15.20 lakh seats. AICTE had, however, received closure notices from 138 engineering colleges facing a fund crunch.
