The Centre has decided to establish Higher Education Commission of India that is set to replace the University Grants Commission. The focus of Higher Education Commission of India will be on improving academic standards and the quality of higher education. Moreover the Commission will provide a roadmap for mentoring of institutions found failing in maintaining the required academic standards. The Commission will have the power to grant authorization for starting of academic operations and the power to revoke authorization granting to a higher education institution if there is flouting of norms. There will be an Advisory Council to render advice to the Commission on matters concerning coordination and determination of standards in the country.
