Centre decides to withdraw Private Universities Bill

The Union Cabinet today decided to withdraw the Private Universities (Establishment and Regulations) Bill, 1995 from the Rajya Sabha.

New Delhi, May 31 : The Union Cabinet today decided to withdraw the Private Universities (Establishment and Regulations) Bill, 1995 from the Rajya Sabha.

The Bill, which is pending since 1995, will be removed from the list of pending bills, since the UGC Regulations, 2003 which were upheld by the Supreme Court adequately address the concern regarding mushrooming of private universities.

It will also take care of the Centre's obligation in regard to the coordination and maintenance of standards of higher education.

The Union Cabinet also gave its approval for making both men and women eligible for Short Service Commission (SSC) in the Flying branch of Indian Air Force (IAF), revision of the SSC ceiling in flying branch to 20 percent and of the term of engagement of officers to 14 years, with no extension.

It is expected to help in overcoming the shortages in flying branch and to enhance the SSC strength.
