Twenty vice-chancellors (V-Cs) from across the country have been chosen to be part of a committee that will formulate a plan for University Grant Commission (UGC) in the 11th Five-Year plan.

Dr Parimal Trivedi, V-C of Gujarat University, is also part of the committee, which will meet on Thursday at Mumbai University. The committee will give its suggestions to the UGC, which will integrate these in the planning of disbursing resources in the next Five-Year plan.

“The committee will look at the suggestions given by previous committees and come up with something which will be a value addition. We plan to bring about an extremely flexible set-up, where higher education does not remain only till formal bachelors degree or masters degree courses, but should also offer vocational training courses, which will widen students' horizons,” Trivedi said.
