#UGC approves new #regulations for #higher_education

#UGC approves new #regulations for #higher_education
The #University_Grants_Commission is understood to have passed two important #regulations related to#technical_education and #distance_education.
At a meeting of the commission on Friday, the board members have passed the regulation as a result of which technical colleges will now be regulated by the #universities.
Under the new #regulation, the #universities have been empowered to grant #recognition and #approval to the colleges offering #engineering programmes leading to an award of a degree.
According to sources, the #universities have to establish their own mechanism for screening of proposal and inspection of#institution prior to #granting the #approval.
However, sources said that the institutes offering diploma in#management programme will continue to be regulated as per the existing practice.
The #commission is also understood to have #approved the regulation for #distance_education under which the universities offering the #distance_education programme will have to seek approval of #UGC for programmes leading to the awarding of a degree.
However, stand-alone #institutions are likely to be not covered by the #regulation.
