With UGC and AICTE are gone, HEERA will regulate technical and non-technical institutions.
'The University Grants Commission (UGC) and All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) are soon going to be a thing of the past with the government planning to replace them with a single higher education regulator,' reported Press Trust of India.
The detailed blueprint of HEERA and its legislation is still being worked. "Both Niti Aayog and HRD Ministry officials are working on the plan. It was felt that multiple regulatory bodies led to excessive and restrictive regulation and hence contributed to lack of institutional autonomy," a source said to PTI.
