Kathmandu, August 7:

The lock-out in the Institute of Engineering admission committee lifted today after the Tribhuvan University Executive Council endorsed the IOE affiliation to the Kathford International College of Engineering and Management in the next academic session, on condition they fulfil the criteria.

The TU executive council also gave the nod for BE Electronics and BE Electrical courses in the Himalayan College of Engineering and Kathmandu Engineering College, respectively from the next session.
