Programme of Action (PoA), 1992 under the National Policy on Education (NPE), 1986 envisaged conduct of a common entrance examination on all India basis for admission to professional and technical programmes in the country. For admission to Engineering and Architecture/Planning programmes, Government of India vide Resolution dated 18th October 2001 has laid down a Three Exam Scheme (IIT-JEE and AIEEE at the National Level and the State Level Engineering Entrance Examinations (SLEEE) for State Level Institutions with an option to join AIEEE). This takes care of varying admission standards in these programmes and helps in maintenance of professional standards. This also solves problems of overlaps and reduces physical, mental and financial burden on students and their parents due to multiplicity of entrance examinations.
The seventh All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) was held on 27th April, 2008 7,92,752 candidates appeared, out of 8,62,853 candidates registered, for the examination at 1298 centres located in 75 cities. Approximately, 17,163 seats for B E/B.Tech and 759 seats for B.Arch/ B. Planning in various institutions, namely National Institutes of Technology, Deemed Universities, Technical Institutions and other Govt. funded Institutions were offered through this examination. A centralized counselling had been organized for filling up the All India seats.
The States/Institutes listed below used AIEEE-2008 ranks to fill seats through their own counselling:- West Bengal, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Punjab University, Chandigarh, Punjab Engineering College, Chandigarh, Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology, Gandhinagar, Army Institute of Technology, Pune, 15% all India quota for D C E/ N.S.I.T, Delhi under Delhi University.
Keeping in view greater variety of subjects offered by different School Boards at the 10+2 (Class - XII) level, more subject combinations in qualifying examination (10+2) would now be possible
