Single body to replace UGC, AICTE

The University Grants Commission and All India Council of Technical Education are soon going to be a thing of the past with the government planning to replace them with a single higher education regulator. The proposed Higher Education Empowerment Regulation Agency is aimed at eliminating overlaps in jurisdiction and remove irrelevant regulatory provisions. The human resource development ministry is working with the Niti Aayog on a plan to bring technical as well as non-technical institutions under the same umbrella.
