ugcThe University Grants Commission (UGC) is planning to undertake a series of measures like increasing number of fellowships, reservations and financial assistance to girls.

The higher education regulator is aiming to bridge the gaps in higher education arising out of gender, social groups, and minorities. It also pointed out another ‘key concern’ being the low enrolment in teacher education, which stood merely at three per cent.

The UGC Chairman Ved Prakash also stressed on the need to have greater number of trained teachers to strengthen the school education, as through a good school education the quality of higher education can also be improved.

In the last few years, the UGC has allocated Rs 4,684 crore for supporting nearly 18.94 lakh students from as many as 6,562 institutions.
