Recently, the University Grants Commission (UGC) announced new regulations for the online and offline exams, and distance education.
The top 100 universities are already gearing up to follow these new norms.
Even the Universities, with 3.26 or above National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) score will also provide online learning without prior permission.
“The integrated regulations are student-centric. Many quality provisions have been made to ensure mobility, equivalence among different modes of education, complaint handling mechanism, etc,” quoted our Education Minister, Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal.
Earlier, our Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman launched the PM e-Vidya Programme , focusing on the multi-mode access to digital education which will be applicable to all the top 100 universities to offer online degree programmes from May 30, 2020, with new eligibility benchmarks.
