Hyderabad: Is it time for the University Grants Commission (UGC) as well as various other peak regulative authorities of college at the Centre as well as the State to avoid dealing with trainees dedicating a criminal offense for researching an added training course or what they such as?
The concern has actually come forward complying with a collection of brand-new standards released just recently by the UGC enabling to go after 2 levels all at once. But it preserved a condition victimizing trainees that went after 2 training courses all at once prior to as well as after problem of standards.
The UGG asserted that its brand-new standards to permit trainees to go after dual level programs in a quote to provide them a variety of self-controls, consisting of scientific researches, social scientific researches, arts, liberal arts, languages, along with expert technological as well as occupation based on make them thoughtful, versatile as well as imaginative people. It is to prepare them to have even more significant as well as enjoyable lives as well as job duties as well as make it possible for financial self-reliance. It remains in line with the National Education Policy -2020 (NEP-2020).
The brand-new adjustments have actually rated by a number of quarters. But concerns were increased over a certain provision of the UGC standards. The brand-new standards state, “the guidelines shall come into effect from the date of their notification by the UGC.” However, “No retrospective benefit can be claimed by those students who have already done two academic programmes simultaneously, prior to the notification of the guidelines.”
Speaking to The Hans India, resources in the Osmania University stated, the college enabled its undergraduate as well as postgrad trainees seeking both the routine as well as Open as well as Distance Learning (ODL) setting to go after an added Post-Graduate Diploma in Computer Applications (PGDCA) in ODL setting. Also, all such trainees that have actually sought PGDCA as an added training course had actually been used charge giving in to urge them to take the training course.
“The objective was to empower the students with computer skills that help them to get employment opportunities. Or, to further pursue Master of Computer Applications (MCA) taking lateral admission in the second year of MCA course.” stated an OU authorities.
Now, the OU authorities remain in an issue whether the PGDCA certifications granted to the trainees that have actually sought it as an added training course prior to the brand-new standards stand. It is not just PGDCA; the college had actually granted a number of such diploma training courses as an add-on or an independent training course in ODL setting along with in routine setting running night university.
Similarly, trainees of under-graduate, as well as post-graduate research studies of arts, liberal arts, social scientific researches, along with design as well as clinical training courses have actually enlisted themselves as well as went after diploma-level training courses in singing as well as critical songs in Karnataka as well as Hindustani songs practices in the State government- run songs universities both in Telangana as well asAndhra Pradesh That apart, various other preferred training courses sought consist of Diploma as well as PG Diploma in Yoga as well as international languages used by the college divisions or leading colleges, like English as well as Foreign Languages University (EFLU).
“If the UGC bar has to be implemented, the universities and colleges have to cancel all such degrees and diplomas awarded by them, as they were illegal. The UGC should take into consideration the ground reality and validate all degrees and diplomas awarded in the case of students who have pursued more than one course simultaneously before the new guidelines were issued. It can give a one-time waiver validating all the double degree courses pursued before the new guidelines.”
All these problems are anticipated to find up for conversation at a conference of vice-chancellors of the State colleges, from both Telangana as well as Andhra Pradesh, with UGC chairman Prof Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar most likely to be held following week, the resources stated.
