Hyderabad: The human resources development ministry has extended the deadline for receiving feedback and suggestions from stakeholders on scrapping of the Universities Grant Commission and the draft bill for replacing it with the Higher Education Commission for India till July 20. 

The decision to extend the deadline was taken following representations from various quarters, especially from faculty members and experts, who fear that the decision will not lead to an improvement in the quality of education. 

 

The ministry had last week announced its decision to replace the UGC with the HECI by repealing the UGC Act, 1951.

According to the draft, which has been placed in the public domain by the ministry to seek feedback from the stakeholders, the new commission will solely focus on academic matters and grants would be under the ministry’s purview.
