In line with the Delhi High Court order banning distance learning courses in physiotherapy, University Grants Commission (UGC) has begun the process of sending notices to universities asking them to stop such courses. The UGC is a state body that provides funds and overlooks maintenance of standards in institutions of higher education in India.

The high court has ordered a ban on all distance education courses in physiotherapy running without approval or prior consent of the approved statutory bodies. The practicing licenses to physiotherapists and oversees education and training for physiotherapy is granted by Indian Association of Physiotherapists (IAP), which had opposed the course stating that distance education in physiotherapy was not possible since it involved a lot of practical training.
