During the initial stages of Independence, the Government of India embarked on rapid industrialization to achieve development by starting various types of industries under the Public Sector. The thrust areas were transportation, Roads, Irrigation and Power etc. The Government emphasized the need of technical manpower to handle these organisations and directed the states to develop the Technical education on a fast track mode. The Government of India directed each state government to form a technical Board with the name as “Board of Technical education and Training.

 

The Director of Public Instruction (D.P.I.) used to head the Technical Education also at the time of formation of Andhra Pradesh. To help speed up the process of development of Technical Education, a Board in the name and style of “STATE BOARD OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING” was created vide G.O.Ms.No.371 Edn-dated 26.2.1957. The Joint Director (Technical Education) of DPI used to act as secretary of this newly formed Board. The Honourable Minister for Technical Education acted as the Chairman of the Board. Representatives from the Universities, industries, other Government Departments were members. Representatives of Pharmacy Council of India, Institution of Engineers were also members. Principals of selected Polytechnics were members too.

Education Act-1982 (act 1 of 1982), an act of assembly, in the present form, vide G.O.Ms.No.140 dated 24.4.1984.

Thus the State Board of Technical Education & Training has been functioning as a non-statutory advisory body with no direct control on academic matters of the institutions. The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) which is the apex body for Technical Education in India had recommended that the State Board of Technical Education in each State may be made statutory body in order to have effective control over the maintenance of quality and in order to achieve excellence in the standards of Technical Education and to protect and pursue the ever-in demand field of Science and Technology to enable it to involve actively in the re-organisation and the much needed reform of Polytechnic Education. The AICTE, which is an advisory body at National level to the Government of India, also suggested a Model Bill providing for the establishment of State Board of Technical Education for the promotion and coordination of Technical and Vocational education and Training at the Polytechnic level in each State and for matters connected therewith.
