University Grants Commission Publishes List Of Mandatory Disclosure For Universities

In a move to educate various stakeholders in the higher education system, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has prepared a list of information that should be uploaded on the website of the universities. 

M Jagadesh Kumar, chairman, University Grants Commission, explains, " Of late different stakeholders in higher education system such as prospective students, parents, research scholars, government officials, alumni and public at large desire to seek certain basic information from the websites of different universities/Higher Educational Institutes. We have found that the websites of several universities lack not only in providing basic minimum information related to their university but also at many a times their websites are not functional and updated."
