Limit number of affiliate colleges to 100: Centre to Varsities

Limit number of affiliate colleges to 100:  Centre to Varsities

Thiruvananthapuram:  In order to bring in sweeping change in the size of universities, Ministry of Human Resource Development is all set to hive off universities with more than 100 affiliated colleges to new ones.

A report on the plan to be implemented in the next years says as much. It is aimed at upgrading quality and skill in education, in order to create more job opportunities.

Human Resource Ministry in its report called Educational Quality Upgradation and Inclusion programme( Equip) seeks state governments to submit suggestions.

Universities with more than 100 affiliated colleges can either hive off or start centres accommodating excess colleges under them.  The responsibility of the new centres should be entrusted with pro-vice-chancellors.

Colleges should come by 2(F) status, which ensures UGC aid, within two years of coming into being. Colleges without having naac accreditation in seven years will not able to continue.  Colleges in function today should be upgraded to autonomous institutions, which could issue certificates  

Eighty percent of higher education institutions should have accreditation by 2020.  Accreditation agency for medical/ law and allied subjects should be formed.

The ranking by the national institutional ranking frame work (NIRF) will be made compulsory to all colleges functioning with public aid.

The slew of directions in the report include introducing legislation for establishing national research foundation, for raising more funds for researches.
