The University Grants Commission (UGC) is effectively considering unwinding its standards which would empower separation training establishments to offer MPhil and PHD projects, profiting almost 10,000 understudies.

The regulations had put a question mark on the eventual fate of almost 10,000 understudies seeking after such courses the nation over.

Taking after broad challenges by different open learning colleges including IGNOU on the ground that laws, went by Parliament or assemblies, permitted them to offer such courses, UGC had lifted the boycott in 2011.

It said, "an open college may be allowed to lead MPhil/PhD programs through removed instruction mode subject to condition that it does as such entirely according to the procurements of the UGC Regulations".

In any case, with no official notice originating from UGC taking after that the matter has delayed for more than four years.

The educators' body additionally said that the postponement by UGC has likewise hampered the procedure of suitably correcting the IGNOU Act.
