AMIE will not be affected as AMIE does not fall under the purview of DEC (Distance Education Council) and it is not a correspondence course. It is a continued education program for full time working professionals.
AMIE is valid even today. People are misunderstanding this as invalid or unrecognised now. This is because of lack of understanding. The only problem is that MHRD presently does not consider AMIE for central government jobs and hence the matter is being fought by IEI in High Court. So far, no final judgement has come.
Other advantages of AMIE are intact - State govt jobs, promotions, higher education, UPSC, GATE, MBA exams etc. Even for open posts, if you do M Tech after AMIE, you may apply for teaching posts such as in IITs! See letter.
