UGC rules for collaboration between Indian, foreign institutes

As top grade foreign educational institutions have shown little or no interest in setting up campuses in India, University Grants Commission notified a set of regulations that will allow Indian institutes with grade B accreditation to enter into collaboration with foreign educational institutions on 25th September.

Incidentally, the notification was published on the day the PM left for the US to attend the UN general assembly. UGC's notification was necessitated as more and more Indian institutes with B grade accreditation have started collaboration with foreign educational institutions. "The idea is to regulate such arrangements to protect the interest of students. We would not allow dilution of standards," a UGC official said.

Foreign institutions that enter into partnerships should be accredited with the highest grade in their homeland, the UGC notification said. "At the time of agreement for collaboration, Indian educational institution shall have accreditation by National Assessment and Accreditation Council with a grade not less than B or its equivalent grade," the notification said. Indian educational institutions already having a collaborative arrangement shall comply with these regulations within a period of six months, the notification said. Foreign educational institutions will have to abide by the conditions prescribed by the Indian government from time to time.

Besides, the Indian institutes collaborating with foreign institutes shall have experience of at least five years offering educational programmes at the level of degree and post-graduate diplomas. Violation of rules could lead to termination of the MoU entered into for collaboration and even blacklisting, the notification said. The regulations are called the UGC (Promotion and Maintenance of Standards of Academic Collaborations between Indian and Foreign Educational Institutes) Regulations, 2012 .
