New Delhi: To check any “irregular practices” in deemed universities, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has made significant recommendations, including mandatory accreditation and regular monitoring of their standards.
UGC has submitted these recommendations in the form of a regulation to the ministry of human resource development (HRD) for consideration.
“The regulation says that an institution must have accreditation by either National Board of Accreditation or National Accreditation and Assessment Council for being given deemed university status. It also sets a number of quality parameters like teacher-student ratio and other facilities,” a senior HRD ministry official said.
