The University Grant Commission ( UGC) has set up a four-member committee in order to study the action-taken reports submitted by 10 Central Universities. These reports were the official reply to the audit conducted by UGC earlier in the 10 government universities including Aligarh Muslim Universities, Central University of Rajasthan, Tripura University and Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University. The UGC had set up five-committees to conduct the audit in various universities. The audit committee had suggested that AMU should drop the word ‘ Muslim’ from its name. in reply to the suggestion, the AMU rebuked the action and called UGC’s proposition as “preposterous” for ignoring the long history and unique character of the institution. The new committee set up by the UGC will now look into the action-reports submitted by the universities on the auditing committee’s suggestions. Headed by the member UGC and Vice-chancellor of BPS Mahila Vishwavidyalaya, Haryana, Sushma Yadav, and others including Kuldeep Chand Agnihotri, VC Central University of Himachal Pradesh, Neeraj Tripathi, registrar BHU, Joint Secretary UG ,will constitute the committee and is said to study the reports and decide the future course of action in December this year, according to the official UGC circulars.
