University Grants Commission said that it had sought the comments of statutory councils but the responses so far do not endorse the idea of allowing students to pursue two degrees simultaneously.

The University Grants Commission (UGC) on January 19 said that its consultations related to allowing students to pursue two degrees simultaneously so far have not received a positive response. In a notice posted on its website, UGC said that it had sought the comments of statutory councils but the responses so far do not endorse the idea of allowing students to pursue two degrees simultaneously.  “Therefore, the Universities shall conduct their programmes in accordance with the First Degree and Master Degree Regulations, 2003 prescribed by the UGC and also follow the norms and parameters prescribed by the Statutory Council concerned, wherever relevant,” the notice signed by UGC Secretary Jaspal S Sandhu said. An expert committee of the UGC had two years ago recommended that students enrolled in a regular degree course should be allowed to pursue an additional degree simultaneously under open or distance education mode from the same or different university. However, students should not be allowed to undertake two regular degrees at the same time, the committee had held. – Courtesy
