In 2013, in a meeting with the case writers, Dr. F. S. Umrigar, Principal, Birla Vishvakarma Mahavidyalaya (BVM), Vallabh Vidyanagar, and the Heads of Departments, BVM, expressed their concerns about the implementation of academic autonomy, an important feature of the Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (TEQIP-II), which the college had undertaken. BVM had enjoyed de facto autonomy when it was affiliated to the Sardar Patel University (SPU), since for a long time it had been the only college in the university, and in practice functioned just as a fully autonomous institute would. Two more colleges had joined SPU around 13 years ago, but the feeling of autonomy and control over student learning continued.
