REGULATORY PROCESSN IN INDIA



From the number of students an institution can admit that the room they need, education regulators to specify every aspect of the educational process.  Take the regulatory process of all India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), for example. It has more than 67 different parameters in which the standards that an institution must meet in order to be approved. But except for the insistence on the number of contact hours, AICTE hardly a measure to create a good learning experience for the student to ensure. No discussion on transparency in the admission, not the quality of teaching, no way for the student to his or her experience to objectively evaluate and remedy for what are being treated unfairly or cheated search.
The student always felt cheated. Nearly 67 percent of the queries received Careers360 about bad experiences of the students, which in turn is the result of weak regulatory regimes. A lack of application of the idea in the draft regulations, indifference to the impact of decisions on students randomly, but useless pious sentiments about student welfare, and a colonial attitude of controls, has led to a regulatory morass that it is difficult to escape from.   

The pity is that most of these problems can be solved easily, just as the state looks at education through the eyes of the student. We identify nine cases where the regulatory mess inflicted unwarranted pain on students:- Q1: If deemed university status be revoked?                                                                                     Students a problem: Lot of 44 Dear UniversitiesSanction and withdrawal without a thought for the consequences seem rife to be. Newsindia builds a reader's inquiry about the topic. Core players and where they stand ministry of HRD: The Ministry has been instrumental in the 44 universities considered equal and the conclusion of merit declared.
UGC: It is the agency that inspects institutions and the Ministry recommends that institutions earn on condition that the status of a deemed university. Supreme Court: the top court is currently hearing a bunch of petitions and the Ministry's notice referred to the En-status to withdraw up to 44 of the 137 players remained. Status quoNo matter how valid the reason for the withdrawal of Deemed University (Du) state the question remains: is it fair to the thousands of students whose career was badly affected? Careers360 this issue in detail in the April 2010 edition. UGC as a one-time exemption to make Distance Education B. Tech students, as it could allow a building, two faculty units and central universities, we must be willing to slightly lower our standards when it comes to certain words. What's good for the goose should be good for the Gander!
The last we heard, the HRD Ministry has set up a committee review the submission by the 44 institutions evaluated. Ideally, the state pride swallowing and revoke the notice, prescribe the minimum standards, giving the institutions (both public and private) reasonable time to implement it and stop it immediately admissions for those who have not reached the criterion no.
In the process the student's future is secure. If this means that, for a few years we could end up with slightly less-educated engineers and architects we need to live with it. But we should sacrifice the future of thousands of students due to the whims of a few?

- Q2: Study centers in various countries. Is this legal?
Student Problem 2: Is my Distance Learning Program valid public universities can prepare a statement of study / off-campus in other countries? Newsindia builds a reader's inquiry about the topic.
Core players and where they standSupreme Court: In his famous prof. Yashpal Versus goi & others, the court clearly prohibit off-shore, study and off-campus centers by universities, which governed the state Acts. UGC: with reference to the above opinion is UGC circulars issued from time to time that clearly deny permission for such centers by the state-level universities and Deemed Universities. DEC: After a series of flip-flops, DEC now says there can be no territorial boundaries of distance education, but clearly prohibit franchise and the outsourcing of these centers. Status quoThe issue here is one of a true distance learning institutions vis-à-vis some "authorized a study of centers started their programs full-time/regular to offer without regulatory oversight. In a normal study center, getting a student in the library and laboratory support, administrative assistance and at times can even academic inputs.
The program remains self-evident driven learning and accordingly cost-effective. In the "hybrid" model, the educational institutions fancy names such as "on-site partner" or "approved institution" that help them masquerade as regular institutions. So the students are misled to believe that they are studying under a regular, full-time program and pay for the course.
The issue here is not a debate on the territorial jurisdiction not. The concern is the effortless blending of different forms of education by the institutions. While the study centers for distance education, off-campus and off-shore intended for full-time programs. They serve different needs and therefore should not be clubbed together. As in the case of Saif, students are led to believe that a full-time program, they do not. They get a degree eventually, which is legal and valid, but again, it will be just a DL degree.

- Q3: Can I get a B. Tech degree through correspondence?
Student Problem 3: BTech / in distance mode valid? There is an open violations even when UGC, AICTE and December reject B. Tech degree through distance education. Newsindia builds a reader's inquiry about the topic.
Core players and where they stand Ministry of HRD: clearly came up with a notice in December not to recommend engineering degrees to allow correspondencee by AICTE not: Is there a clear policy of not allowing B. Tech through correspondence, December not allow such programs.
Status quoit is a saga of negligence shown by both regulatory bodies - UGC and AICTE.
The first wave of distance learning (DL) degrees in engineering came when some universities Dear JRN Vidyapeeth B. Tech began by correspondence and started setting up the study centers across the country. On August 9, 2005, the UGC came up with a circular expressly prohibited distance B. Tech-learning programs.
When the decision by JRN Vidyapeeth and challenged, the UGC accepted, quite inexplicably, a one-time exemption to these institutions and allowed a B. Tech degrees by correspondence between 2001 and 2005.
The institutions have continued to allow students to both UGC and December in 2009 awoke and began notifying the correspondence degrees as invalid. JRN Vidyapeeth again told the court that stayed December's conduct in this matter.
Four questions arise: - If technical degrees may not be offered in distance education mode is how the government allows engineering degrees as Amie and AMIETE justified? - How can the AICTE comes notifications with the regulation of universities that are supposed to be outside the scope? - As at December, distance learning programs in engineering, how IGNOU justified in the B. Tech l?
As a result of the actions and inaction of the regulators, the situation remains vague and open to litigation. The students were so out in the cold face.

- Q4: PGDM, and a foreign degree? Is this legal?
Student Problem 4: tie-ups with foreign universities valid Many institutions offer a variety of programs by tying with foreign partners?. Is it valid?
Core players and where they standAICTE A PGDM by an institution approved by AICTE offered is equivalent to MBA for the purposes of employment. Unless AICTE approved the tie-even foreign MBA is invalid for any Govt. JOB PURPOSE
AIU: with reference to the above opinion is UGC circulars issued from time to time that clearly deny permission for such centers by the state-level universities and Deemed Universities.
Status quoThe players in this case, in fact, more. Each regulatory agency, whether it is Medical Board or Pharmacy has its own norms as far as foreign degrees are involved.
But most universities would agree to accept AIU certification, if available. In India, a member of the internationally renowned organizations such as the Washington Accord that reciprocal equivalence to degrees, the validity of any suspicious foreign degree in the country!
As a student, a foreign degree that you are eligible for a government job or higher studies to continue, unless from an approved or an accredited university.
In Suri's case, both PGDM and MBA is valid. But not so for many others because AIU is not active in the acquisition of mutual equality and there is no exchange of information between individual regulators.

- Q5: My college offers a joint degree. Is it valid? Student Problem 5: joint degrees with foreign Univ credibility with foreign institutions setting up local campuses, the noise for tie-ups on the rise?. Is there value?
Core players and where they stand HRD ministry: A new law proposed foreign educational institutions to regulate. But from now on it has no legal basis.
AICTE: mandate for quality technical education to ensure that this Convention has Moto launched a scheme to such joint offerings and local campuses of foreign institutions to approve.
Status quo Most of the reputed institutions go by the AICTE approval route because they feel that the regulatory regime is stifling. The most visible example is the certification offered by ISB. AICTE terms even as an approved program. The program cited in the above problem is valid and approved by AICTE. But unless a level playing field is created good institutions will continue as unapproved called, and a host of unscrupulous players will use the same as an argument to the sub-program to offer.
Will the regulator demanded why such events happen?

- Q6: Why institutions to avoid establishing campuses?
Student Problem 6: a university, several campuses - valid an obscure rule by UGC can suddenly hit the institutions and students. A Careers360 reader shares his predicament.
Core players and where they standUGC: UGC has categorically stated that no state universities (public and private) universities or deemed to have additional campuses in the first five years of their existence, even after five years they can do so only with the prior approval.
STATE GOVTS: Most governments indicate a territorial jurisdiction for each university, but it allowed the establishment of centers and campuses, both inside and outside the United States.
Status quo This is one of the many standards that students must be aware of, but they can hit hard if a bureaucrat decides to implement it through all the additional campuses of a university as null and void to declare. It UGC itself this message seriously was founded by the fact that its own inspection teams to clarify a report on the establishment of additional campuses in some universities and considers it illegal. However, the team recommends that the sanction of UGC approval.
When universities like Harvard to come and set up campuses in India, it makes no sense to an Andhra University to prevent the creation of a campus in Jammu and Kashmir. But as long as the notice is the sword of Damocles of recognition stared at the unfortunate students who accidentally their dream courses in any one of several campuses.

- Q7: academic degrees can only be valid for a professional? Students issue 7: All pharmacy degrees are not in a time warp Pharmacy validStuck say only a few degrees is valid. Is this right?
Core players and where they standPharmacy Council: The Council's position is clear.This voice only B. Pharm, D. Pharma and Pharma.D programs. No other program is valid. Universities: Individual universities are hidden behind the UGC Act, which empowers them to any academic degree to be granted and therefore argue that their degrees are valid.
Status quoThis is a classic case of a career track in academia. The profession is not interested in investing time and energy in the evaluation of alternative or new programs that offer a host of institutions provide the students with skills necessary for the occupation or the same learning. The matter is not limited to NIPER. Many deemed universities offering master's program, which is not approved by PCI is. But despite their courses with a huge market value, despite the students that the finding of plum positions in several pharmaceutical companies the profession fails to take note and take action to approve them as professional courses.
   
For no fault of the student, now he or she is saddled with a degree from a leading academic institutions, but can not strive for an academic or a professional? What could be more cruel?

- Q8: What do the new regulations PGDM is meant for the thousands of students?
Students issue 8: PGDM courses have too many regulations regulationsAICTE PGDM programs will in all probability kill good institutions make bad people prosper.
Core players and where they standAICTE: is adamant that the policy is right and should be implemented. Officials said the challenge in court is only a temporary setback.
Institutions: cried hoarse and had approached the court for relief, individually and collectively.
Supreme Court: The interim relief for a year and is currently hearing the case.
Status quoThis call is a perfect example of the word, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Nobody can argue with the AICTE said when admissions to be transparent, fees must be reasonable, and students must be given to quality content. But the norms that they suggested any of them will not do. If admissions are done by governments, then parochialism tends to creep, and the national character of most of the good schools will go down the drain.
Ensure financial transparency would go a long way, rather than just fixing fees.Imposition of contact hours and the specification of skills would force institutions to think in terms of raising the bar. The ends must be specified and the means to achieve them should be left to the students.
   
In this myopic policy obtained is Needless to confusion and sleepless nights for students and, of course, an unexpected windfall for attorneys across the country. But, we suspect, is not AICTE's intent.

- Question 9: Do not we have a national standard? Will education be improved?
Students issue 9: BCom grads can not go bed National Council for the Training of Teachers (NCTE), the apex body for quality standards, faces resistance from the United States in the implementation?. Core players and where they standNCTE: Rules are very clear. Minimum percentage of 50% in the graduation ceremony, all streams allowed for BEd and Distance Education BEd open only to in-service teachers with two years experience.
State Govts: different norms for both eligibility and streams.
High Courts: At least five different High Courts is assessed on each of these parameters.
Status quoThe arrival of the National Council for the Training of Teachers (NCTE) is supposed to have an era of high-quality teacher education introduced. But the policy regime does not appear to change.
Even with regard to the recent teachers eligibility test, the initial notice Commerce graduates, in spite of Trade as one of the core subjects taught in schools. Even Jamia where two chairmen of the NCTE, does not allow students to trade show for the bed. The anomaly between local universities and NCTE standards is a cause for concern. It is a pity that many colleges consider teacher training in trade as a non-essential characteristic. The minimum percentage must be unified. In a nation different parts of the population is treated differently with respect to the minimum eligibility to be taken to ensure that equal opportunities for everybody.
When will the U.S. national standard adopted, despite the Supreme Court confirmed the right of Parliament to make laws for the whole nation, especially when it comes to issues like education in the Concurrent List of the Constitution?
