Modi’s HEERA to replace UGC, AICTE: All you need to know
It will be called HEERA or Higher Education Empowerment Regulation Agency. HEERA will replace both UGC and AICTE soon. In early March the Prime Minister had chaired a meeting on education following which the decision was taken. Several experts had advocated a similar idea, but the same was never implemented. Currently work is on to frame the HEERA legislation. A detailed blue-print will be prepared following which the legislation would come into force. Officials have termed replacing UGC and AICTE as one of the cleanest, most sweeping reform.
