Central Govt seeks feedback to scrap UGC, set up Higher Education Commission
The University Grants Commission is all set to give way to the Higher Education Commission of India (Repeal of University Grants Commission Act) Act 2018, which the government is branding as the “end of inspection raj.”
The ministry of human resource development (MHRD) has uploaded the draft of the Act, which provides for establishing the HECI by repealing the UGC Act, 1956, on its website on Wednesday evening. The government is inviting feedback from the public.
Educationists, stakeholders and others can furnish their comments and suggestions by July 7, 2018, until 5 pm.
