Higher edu sector: Govt proposes outsourcing non-academic jobs
There are 316 states public universities and 13,024 colleges which could be covered under RUSA.
States are also required to fulfil certain prerequisites such as setting up state higher education council, accreditation agencies and prepare state perspective plans to be eligible for funding.
Funding will be available to private government-aided institutions also based on laid down norms and parameters.
Raising concern over "political and external interference" in the appointment of vice chancellors in the state universities, the document felt there is an imperative need to prescribe procedures in these matter to ensure transparency and selection of deserving candidates.
