New Delhi: Centre-funded top-ranking educational institutions like Banaras Hindu University (BHU), Delhi University (DU), Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Lady Shri Ram College and Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) are likely to be given full autonomy in terms of operation as well as finance.

As a part of an extensive educational reform, the initiative is powered by a committee which is headed by NITI Aayog's vice-chairman Arvind Panagariya. The move would facilitate the institutions to put up funds individually.
