Big Change In Education System By PM Modi Government that is UGC & AICTE To Be Replaced By HEERA. The decision to go ahead with this radical change, long advocated by experts but never implemented, was taken after a meeting on education chaired by the prime minister in early March. If required, and since setting up a new regulator may take some time, amendments to existing rules will be considered as an interim reform measure.
Senior officials who spoke off record told ET that work is on at a rapid pace to frame the HEERA legislation. The human resource development (HRD) minister.
The main purpose behind this decision is to bring more clarity and remove all the unnecessary regulations that have lost their relevance. The presence of single regulator will result in better coordination and provide ease in making the curriculum for various streams. It will also end the inspector raj and the new body will be provided by powers to take legal actions whenever necessary.
This is not a new idea as it has been recommended by many committees including Yashpal Committee and National Knowledge Commission which gave their report during Manmohan regime but it never happened in reality.
Since bringing in new legislation and repealing AICTE and UGC Acts may be a time-consuming process, interim measures are likely and amendments to these Acts and modification of UGC regulations are among options being considered.
