Officials discuss the roadmap for world class universities

Senior functionaries of the Union HRD ministry discussed the regulations for the proposed 20 ‘world class universities’ announced in the 2016-17 budget. In the meeting, which was headed by HRD minister Prakash Javadekar, the aspects related to autonomy and regulations for these universities were finalised. It was also discussed whether the words ‘world class’ can be used in the nomenclature for these institutes. Sources said they may be called ‘institutes of excellence’. Giving more flexibility to the regulations by bringing down the corpus fund for these institutes was also discussed.
