HECI: Higher Education Commission of India

HECI: Higher Education Commission of India: The Central Government has announced the termination of the University Grants Commission (#UGC) on Wednesday by taking a major step towards improving the quality of higher education. It will now become HECI(Higher Education Commission of India), Higher Education Commission of India, for regulation in the higher education institutions. The HECI Act, 2018 will be implemented by eliminating the UGC Act of 1951. Union Human Resource Development Minister Javdekar announced the new law on Wednesday.

The Centre is set to replace the apex higher education regulator body University Grants Commission (UGC) with Higher Education Commission of India (HECI) by repealing the UGC Act, 1951, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said today.

"In a landmark decision, a draft Act for repeal of #UGC & setting up #HECI (Higher Education Commission of India) has been prepared," Javadekar tweeted.

He said the draft act is in accordance with the commitment of the government to reform the regulatory mechanism to provide "more autonomy" to higher education institutes to promote excellence and facilitate holistic growth of the education system.

The proposed Higher Education Commission of India would focus solely on academic matters and monetary grants would be under the purview of the ministry, according to the draft.

HECI: Higher Education Commission of India: Now the government will end the UGC and form the HECI. A big step in improving the quality of higher education.
