UGC invites colleges for meet on autonomy
New Delhi: In an effort to ensure maximum participation from the top grade institutions in the University Grants Commission’s scheme of autonomous colleges, the regulatory authority has invited colleges from across the country for an orientation programme on Thursday.
Six Delhi University colleges have already expressed their interest in seeking autonomous status. The orientation programme is likely to give an idea about the interest level among the other colleges for autonomous status. The UGC has already notified the scheme earlier this year. In his letter to the colleges P K Thakur, secretary, UGC, wrote that the commission has been implementing the scheme of autonomous colleges in order to facilitate the colleges to achieve further qualitative improvement leading towards academic excellence.
