This shouldn’t take you by shock if in some time you come across a headline that suggests that UGC is being replaced by the government. On Wednesday, the government proposed the draft of a new Act with which it seeks to replace the University Grants Commission (UGC) -- the principal funding body for universities.

As per the draft of the Act which is likely to repeal the University Grants Commission Act, 1956, Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar asked the stakeholders to send their recommendations on the Act by July 7, 2018.

Tweeting about the same, Javadekar said "My appeal to all educationists, stakeholders and others to furnish their comments and suggestions by July 7, 2018 till 5 p.m and mail at reformofugc@gmail.com".

"The Draft Act is in accordance with the commitment of government for reforming the regulatory systems that provide more autonomy to Higher Education institutes to promote excellence and facilitate holistic growth of the education system.

"The transformation of the regulatory set up is based upon the principles - Minimum government & Maximum governance, separation of grant functions, end of inspection raj, focus on academic quality, powers to enforce," he said.

The new Act, termed "Higher Education Commission of India Act, 2018", will be applicable to all higher education institutions established under any Act of the Parliament excluding institutions of national importance notified so by the Central or state government.
