Jammu and Kashmir Board Of Technical Education
came into being as an individual entity under the Directorate of Technical Education in 1981. It has now been transformed into an autonomous body by an Act of 2002, of the State Legislature. The dimensions of work perfected by JKBOTE has incremented manifold over the years with a boost in the number of courses offered by the Polytechnics with a simultaneous escalation in the number of institutions in the state.


J&K Board of Technical Education was established by J&K State Board of Technical Education Act, 2002 with a mandate:

(i) To regulate matters pertaining to technical education,
(ii) To develop the standards of technical education, and
(iii) To conduct examinations for the students admitted to AICTE approved Polytechnics from time to time leading to the award of diplomas
(iv) To monitor the performance of the affiliated institutions and for other matters connected therewith or incidental thereto.

The Board of Technical Education stands under the constant responsibility of specifying the educational and other qualifications for admission of students to recognized/affiliated institutions at Polytechnics and ITI levels and the terms and conditions upon which, students shall be admitted to such institutions.

As such the Board has to coordinate and maintain standards of technical education and to effect re-orientation of such education in conformity with the norms and standards of courses laid down by the All India Council for Technical Education so as to serve the needs of commerce and industry and to promote cooperation amongst recognized polytechnics and industrial and commercial organizations.

We at Board are driven by a mission to put in tireless efforts in a transparent and efficient manner toward the fulfilment of the responsibility, the organisation is entrusted with.
