With the growing size and diversity of the higher education sector in the country particularly in terms of courses, management and geographical coverage it has become necessary to develop a sound data-base on higher education. In view of this, Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has initiated an All India Survey on Higher Education.
A Task Force has been constituted under the chairmanship of Additional Secretary (HE), MHRD with representatives from University Grants Commission. All India Council for Technical Education, Medical Council of India, Indian Institute of Agricultural Statistics Research Institute, Central Statistical Office, Universities, State Higher Education Departments etc. as members to oversee the survey work.
As quoted by Minister of State for Human Resource Development Smt. D. Purandeswari.
A much needed decision every now and then students are deceived by the bogus institutes which claim to be offering genuine degrees, its high time these colleges realize this and clearly mention the University affiliation status, UGC recognized or AICTE approved status on their websites. Students should also take caution by doing their home work on the Institute they wish to study, there are colleges which are affiliated to a university and function as a study center to offer distance learning or correspondence courses, but for a student they claim to be offering a full time degree which is unfair.
