Do you accede to Pal Panel suggestions? - June 23rd, 2009

Yash Pal commitee has given suggestion for improving the higher education system in India.It has suggested that all the current governing bodies like UGC,MCI must be scrapped and IIT/IIM must be given the permission to grant deemed university status.It serves one good news of eliminating the bad ones existing now.The bad news is that IITs/IIMs must not be brought into this role as it will seriously affect the credibility of these instis and moreover this will digress their duties.I feel this should not be done.

“A National Council for Higher Education as recommended by the Yash Pal Committee and the National Knowledge Commission to bring in reform of regulatory institutions,” said Patil.

Like the NKC, the Yash Pal committee had suggested that all the regulatory bodies should be scrapped and a higher education commission be set up to monitor different aspects of higher education. But this idea did not get support from the UGC and the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). Besides, it also called for doing away with the deemed university system, divesting professional course regulators like the AICTE and the Medical Council of India of all academic functions and expanding IITs and IIMs to fullfledged varsities.

The Yash Pal Committee had asked the government to change its definition of university to free it from the hands of bureaucracy, make it autonomous and have a single higher education commission, which is as powerful as the Election Commission and replaces agencies like the UGC and Indian Medical Council.

“We do not agree with the way vice chancellors have been appointed. We have also expressed concern over certain provisions of the Central Universities Bill,” Pitroda had said.

In three years, the NKC gave over 300 recommendations to the government on 27 different subjects but maintained that the implementation was slow. It also wanted the creation of a National Knowledge Network, formation of National Science and Social Science Foundation (NS3F) and passing a legislation to help universities and research institutions file patents in their own name and forge commercialisation processes with the industry.

It also took exception to the way the government appointed vice chancellors for 15 new Central Universities in the country.The President has also emphasised on developing a “brain gain” policy to attract talent from all over the world into the 14 universities proposed in the 11th Plan to position them as “Innovation Universities”.

Exclamation Re: Do you accede to Pal Panel suggestions? - June 23rd, 2009

Higher Education reforms will best be brought about by cleaning up the existing system rather than by drastically revamping it i.e., expropriating the powers of granting deemed University status from UGC and assigning it to IIT/IIM.
The UGC performs several important tasks for the Education system in India besides granting of University or deemed university status. With such specialization available why should we overburden the IIT/IIM's? Since UGC is a statutory Government body, its tasks & responsibilities are assigned under an Act of the Indian Parliament and can be reassigned only under the provisions of the Act i.e. if such provisions exist. Also since all it officials, members etc. are Government employees they can be held accountable for the legality of their actions and hence law should take its course on the matter whether the matter is examined under the Prevention of Corruption Act or under Government employees' conduct rules.
