Indian education system has undergone an accelerated transformation, coming out of the shadows of the pandemic. And one of the first changes to be implemented was the approval to the proposal to pursue two full-time degrees simultaneously by the University Grants Commission. Multiple UGC committees have debated this change for several years and this approval brings Indian higher education one step closer to the international standards.
Another pertinent development was the new regulations for the PhD programme which lets candidates who have completed a four-year bachelor’s degree programme in any discipline with a minimum of 75% marks in aggregate or its equivalent grade to be eligible for a PhD programme. This move opens up the research ecosystem, adding to its strength.
The implementation of the visionary National Education Policy (NEP) that saw delayed progression owing to the pandemic saw renewed focus and resurgence in the year 2022. One of the notable developments this year was implementation of regional language in technical education by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).
