The University Grants Commission (UGC) has granted autonomy to 60 higher educational institutions that have maintained “high academic standards”. Union minister for Human Resource Development (HRD) Prakash Javadekar on Tuesday told reporters that the Narendra Modi government at the Centre was “striving to introduce a liberalized regime in the education sector.” He further said that the focus of the government was on “linking autonomy with quality.”

The institutions that have been granted autonomy include 52 Universities i.e. 5 central universities, 21 state universities, 24 deemed universities, and 2 private universities. Besides, eight colleges have also become autonomous.

The Union minister said that all these 60 institutions will remain under the ambit of the UGC but they will now have more “freedom” to “start new courses, off-campus centers, skill development courses, research parks and any other new academic programs.” These institutions will also now have the freedom to hire faculty from foreign nations, enroll foreign students and provide incentive-based emoluments to the faculty, enter into academic collaborations and run open distance learning programmes.

The eight colleges will also be now free to prepare their own syllabus, hold examinations, evaluate answer sheets and declare results. The role of the university for these colleges will be only to provide the degree.

Javadekar also said that three deemed universities will be sent show-cause notices for “lacking in quality”.
