Panel to examine UGC Act to empower colleges to grant degrees-TOI,10th December,2013

According to minister of state for HRD Shashi Tharoor, an expert committee has been set up by the University Grants Commission to examine UGC Act to empower a college to grant degrees.

If an autonomous college fails to maintain standards, the UGC and the affiliating university can direct the connected college to maintain standards or even consider revoking the autonomous status of that college.Any autonomous college, which has undergone three successive reviews with no adverse comments by expert committees after being granted autonomy, can function independently and there will be no further reviews by the UGC visiting committees.However, having a UGC nominee on the governing board of such councils is a mandatory requirement.
