As many as 14 education-related legislation's are pending in Parliament. Among the education reform bills that have been faced opposition from both BJP and the Foreign Educational Institutions (Regulation of Entry and Operation) Bill, National Commission of Higher Education and Research (NCHER) Bill and Educational Tribunal Bill.
Other key bills awaiting include the Prohibition of Unfair Practices in Technical Educational Institutions, Medical Educational Institutions and University Bill, 2010 and the National Accreditation Regulatory Authority for Higher Educational Institutions Bill of the year 2010.
According to an official, while the BJP leaders agreed to the National Accreditation Regulatory Authority for Higher Educational Institutions Bill, 2010 in the Rajya Sabha, they have expressed reservations on the legislation, which was listed for passage in the Lok Sabha on Monday.
The Bill deals with the mushrooming of Private Higher Educational Institutions which are agitating graduates who find it difficult to get suitable employment. Fresh copies of the legislation's will be dispatched to the leaders of these parties so that they could read them and come prepared for the discussion said the official.
