The announcement was made by Union minister Prakash Javadekar at a function to announce a master's scholarship established in the name of sitting Delhi HC judge Justice Prathiba Singh in 2013.

Here's what Human Resource Development minister said :

"We are now granting nearly complete autonomy and freedom from regulators to the all the top class 15% institutes which have scored 3.25 on NAAC accreditation. We are trying to provide graded autonomy," told Prakash Javadekar in a recent PTI report.

During the event, the HRD minister also said that his government was planning to provide loans for creating research infrastructure in the country.

According to reports, the 5th Prathiba M Singh Cambridge LL.M Scholarship this year was given to Ishmeet Kaur of Delhi University, Raveena Kumari Sethia of Jindal Law School and Ansh Singh Luthra from National Law Institute, Bhopal.

Meanwhile, scholarship certificates were given to the awardees by Cambridge University Pro-Vice Chancellor Eilis Veronica Ferran.

Moreover, Justice Singh, an Indian alumna of the Faculty of Law at the Cambridge University, donated the scholarship that will allow other Indian students to complete an LLM at Cambridge. "India today faces a trilemma of global competitiveness, social inclusiveness and environmental sustainability. A resurgent India is not possible without an invigorated idea of justice which is properly imbibed for being enforced," told Former Chief Justice of India J S Khehar, who was the chief guest on the occasion.

Further, Justice J S Khehar said that legal education is all about management of self and resources to produce persons with values of quality, equity and compassion. "I would like to remind the awardees not to forget that complete education has to be of the head and the heart. It's only then that it will enable you to possess appropriate thrust for your future endeavours," Khehar also added.
