New Delhi, April 12: The University Grants Commission is set to grant autonomous status to more colleges. The HRD ministry today allowed the higher education regulator to relax existing norms for award of the status provided the affiliating university has no objection. This status will give the college autonomy to prepare its own syllabus, conduct exams and declare results without following the academic calendar and programmes of the university. The colleges will have their own board of studies or academic council that will oversee their academic functioning, so far done by the affiliating university. But the university will continue to award degrees.

HRD minister Smriti Irani said a college with an ‘A’ grade from the National Assessment and Accreditation Council for two cycles (10 years) and having an ‘A’ grade in the third cycle also will be awarded autonomous status if the affiliating varsity has no objection. So far, autonomous status was granted to colleges with a permanent affiliation to a university. A no-objection certificate from the state government was also required, apart from an on-the-spot inspection by a UGC expert committee. These requirements have been waived. Nearly 500 colleges across the country have got autonomous status so far. UGC chairman Ved Prakash said scores more would get autonomous status now. – Courtesy     /     Click here to download notice from MHRD
