UGC: Display info on admission, fee on the university's website

Allahabad: With admissions are going on in all the universities, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has directed vice-chancellors to upload all the information related to admission process, fee structure and accreditation ranking on the official websites of the universities.

UGC has taken this decision following the increase in number of accusations by parents and students with regard to tuition fee and other expenses.

The new guidelines by UGC enable student to take decision before joining the course. Besides, it also brings in transparency in institutions of higher education.
