The official told, about 10% of these institutes are government-run, and the rest are privately-owned.

As per the member from AICTE, the council have given them 3 years' time to get their act together. If after 3 years, they do not fill the seats sufficiently, it will close them down. However, the decision will not be imposed retrospectively.
