The Union Government has decided to launch National Higher Education Campaign (Rashtriya Ucchatar Shiksha Abhiyan), to focus on equity based development, improvement in teaching-learning quality and research. Under this programme, funds will be granted to public Universities and Colleges so that higher educational institutes do not depend heavily on the affiliation fees.
The programme will encourage the Universities to give more emphasis on life-skill development activities which would ultimately aid in employment generation.
The University Grants Commission (UGC) has set up an advisory committee, headed by S. K. Joshi, member UGC and former Director-General of CSIR, to monitor the progress of the implementation of the new Four-Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP) being introduced by Delhi University. The panel will also offer corrective advice on the issue of curriculum.
There is a widespread confusion and protest over the new four-year format of undergraduate degree courses being implemented by the DU.
