The committee will prepare guidelines and measures to ensure that more and more students stay for study in India, and come out with a mechanism for increasing intake in well-performing universities. The committee will submit its report within a fortnight.

“Mechanisms will be explored for starting multi-disciplinary and innovative programs, facilitating online lectures by eminent faculty abroad, the linkage between academia and industry, facilitate joint degree ventures and lateral entry to higher education institutes in India,” UGC said.
