New Delhi: University Grants Commission (UGC) in its recent announcement informed the universities to customise the model syllabi by 30 percent depending upon their areas of specialisation.
Meanwhile, the UGC also ensured that there will be no inter-institute/ inter-college migration transfer of teachers.
Earlier UGC had directed universities to modify the syllabi by 20 percent, and the new decision to modify the syllabi by 30 percent, has brought cheers among teachers and students.
Giving 30 percentage leverage in modification of the syllabi, UGC said that this is not deviation from the earlier practice where inter-university migration requires a minimum 70 percentage equivalency as such implying that the syllabi all over India in undergraduate level are similar to the extent of 70 percentage. Under the CBCS system the elective subjects so offered will only be from the subjects which are available in the Universities/ Institutes.
According to TOI Jaspal S Sandhu, secretary, UGC, said that the commission has given template of procedures to be followed so that the standards of education are equally maintained.
"Besides, it also ensures fairness in assessment and evaluation," he added
Numerous communications have been sent to the vice-chancellors of all universities for effective implementation of the system. Eight workshops have already been held all over India in which VCs of all central, state and private universities had participated.
The UGC has also said that the introduction of Choice Bases Credit System will not in any way hamper the academic liberal environment of the universities.
