By : M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bangaluru : Digital Universities without sourced lab or factories are going to be norms of future education and each unit does not need 500 acres of land and our HRD ministry is hunting the availability of a large parcel of land could be one of the prime factors determining the location of the IIT in Karnataka; the requirement could be in the order of 500 acres.Citing human resource development ministry officials, higher education department officials say the decision hinges on this issue. While huge parcels of dispute-free land may not be available in Bengaluru, there are enough sites around the state capital. The online education system need more practical teachers and not acres of land.

UGC is not a failure but must change according to online education and availability of digital technology .But need renaming and reshaping as National Higher Education Commission to deal with emerging diverse complexities. The former UGC chairperson Hari Gautam and first committee set up by HRD minister Smriti Z Irani to review the working of the University Grants Commission cannot belittle UGC by saying that regulatorhas "failed to fulfill its mandate. UGC has done most commendable job since independence or earlier.UGC can be replaced by another body to deal with emerging diverse complexities that is different issue. The former UGC chairperson Hari Gautam and first committee set up by HRD minister Smriti Z Irani to review the working of the University Grants Commission has stolen the idea of Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee former Prime Minister of India who had recommended setting up of National Higher Education Commission through an act of Parliament. Wherefore claim of this committee that they are the people who are suggesting setting up of National Higher Education Authority first time is nothing but Plagiary. For this HRD Minister Smriti Z Irani should censure them and initiate action on them as this is an insult to Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee former Prime Minister of India.One of the first committee set up by HRD minister Smriti Z Irani to review the working of the University Grants Commission has said that the regulator not only has "failed to fulfill its mandate but also has not been able to deal with emerging diverse complexities. Headed by former UGC chairperson Hari Gautam, the committee has said any "reshaping or restructuring" of UGC "will be a futile" exercise and so will be amending the UGC Act. Therefore, it has recommended setting up of National Higher Education Authority through an act of Parliament. It has also prepared a draft of the bill but said that till the time such a body is set up, HRD ministry can bring about many changes through executive order.
