FAQ


A. General

1. On what basis are the courses identified as AICTE approved FDP courses?
AICTE has made it clear that FDP will be available only for elective and advance topics.
FDP will not be applicable to core courses.
So, courses are chosen accordingly.
2. Can you please add a few more courses in this FDP approved course list?
No. These are courses pre-approved by AICTE. We will not be adding any more courses to this list for the July-Dec 2018 semester
3. Will FDP be applicable to previously completed NPTEL certification courses?
The AICTE FDP is applicable from Jul-Dec 2018 semester onward.
This will NOT be applicable to previously completed NPTEL Certification Courses.
4. Do we get the regular NPTEL certificate as well as a separate FDP certificate
You will get the regular NPTEL certificate for the exam written and passed. After that you will have to separately apply for the NPTEL-AICTE FDP certificate.
6. Is there any change in the enrollment form?
No. They may enroll using the same enrolment form as before.
7. Can the faculty continue to act as mentor?
Yes. He/she can be a Mentor of the course.

B. STEPS TO FOLLOW

1. What are the steps the faculty has to follow to obtain the AICTE-NPTEL FDP certificate?
1. Faculty has to enroll to courses on NPTEL portal, register for the certification exam(s) by filling the form and paying the applicable fees, appear at the designated exam centre and write the exam, and pass the exam by scoring marks according to criteria set by NPTEL.
2. Faculty who participate in and pass the NPTEL courses approved by AICTE as FDP will apply separately to NPTEL and get the FDP certificate agreed upon by AICTE and NPTEL.
3. This will be submitted by the faculty to AICTE to complete the process.

C. To apply for FDP certificate separately

1. Is there a fees for getting the FDP certificate? If so, how much?
Rs 200/- if you want to get the hard copy of certificate posted to you. If you dont want the hard copy and the e-certificate alone will do, then the fee is Rs 100/-
3. Should the faculty submit any proof along with the application of FDP certificate?
Yes,a copy of the college Faculty id card or any other proof of being a faculty member in an engineering college should be uploaded.
