News - Modi HEERA Encounters Roadblock

news
The much awaited Education Empowerment Regulation Agency (HEERA) has encountered a roadblock set by the Human Resource Development Ministry. As of now, the plan set by the government to replace the University Grants Commission & the All India Council for Technical Education with a single higher education regulator has been put on hold.

Having a single higher education regulator not a New Idea:

The idea to have a single higher education regulator is not a new one, but has been recommended by various committees set up by previous governments. While the National Knowledge Commission (2006) had recommended an independent regulatory authority for higher education, the Committee on Renovation and Rejuvenation of Higher Education (2009) had also advocated an apex regulatory body by converging multiple agencies in the field of higher education.

What all claims did the Ministry make earlier?

  • Earlier, when the government introduced this plan, the HRD ministry officials claimed that a detailed blueprint of the proposed regulator and its legislation is being worked upon
  • Moreover, the concerned officials said it was felt that multiple regulatory bodies led to excessive and restrictive regulation and hence contributed to the lack of institutional autonomy
