To my knowledge,when institute wants to starts a course,ME/MTech,it has to take permission from All India Council for Technical Education.Depending on faculty/labs avaiable,it can qualify for the required course.Generally speaking MTech course attracts more crowd as Mtech carries more 'waitage' in market than ME as MTech is supposed to be 'slightly more technical' than ME.So there is more competition for MTech course than ME.Ofcourse there are many exceptions.
Also MTech is supposed to slightly specialized
