The University Grants Commission (UGC) of India has granted autonomy to sixty Higher Educational Institutions. This was announced by the Minister of Human Resource Development, Prakash Javadekar, at a media briefing in New Delhi today. Javadekar said that the Government is striving to introduce a liberalized regime in the education sector and emphasis is on linking autonomy with quality.

Giving further details, Javadekar said that the sixty Higher Educational Institutions which have been granted autonomy include 52 Universities i.e. 5 central universities, 21 state universities, 24 deemed universities, and 2 private universities. Javadekar explained that these universities will remain within the ambit of UGC but will have the freedom to start new courses, off campus centers, skill development courses, research parks and any other new academic programs. They will also have the freedom to hire foreign faculty, enroll foreign students, give incentive based emoluments to the faculty, enter into academic collaborations and run open distance learning programmes.

Eight colleges have also been granted autonomy, the HRD Minister said. The eight autonomous collages will be free to set their own syllabus, hold examinations, carry out evaluation as well as declare results. In this case, only the degree will be awarded by the respective university.
