Prepare own plans for grants: UGC to universities

 The UGC has asked universities across the country to  prepare their own plans for seeking grants from the  commission for development purpose, a step aimed at  granting more autonomy to the varsities. So far, expert  committees deputed by UGC used to visit the universities  to assess financial needs of each university based on which  funds were allocated.

“The past experience shows us that this procedure  invariably resulted in delayed communication of financial  allocations to the universities by UGC due to variety of  factors,” said UGC chairman Ved Prakash in a letter to the  vice chancellors. Citing this as one of the major reasons for  discontinuing with the practice, he said the existing  procedure led to delayed implementation of programmes and under-utilization of funds by the varsities.

There from now on “universities will have complete autonomy to prepare its perspective plan and after getting it duly approved by the statutory authorities, it may be submitted to the UGC,” Prakash said in his letter. He also suggested the vice chancellors to prepare proposals for their university under the 12th Five Year Plan Period and submit it to UGC by March 15. (PTI)
