Bangalore: Union Law Minister M Veerappa
Moily Sunday said the government would enact a law to ensure
that higher education regulatory bodies function impartially
and free of corruption.

Moily also hinted at the possibility of cracking down on
the Dental Council of India (DCI) and the All India Council of
Technical Education (AICTE) as has been done in the case of
MCI.

"MCI has been superceded. We have appointed a committee
(in its place)," he told reporters here.

"Whether it`s MCI, DCI or AICTE, we will enact a
legislation to see that they function impartially, free of
corruption and cheating," he said.

He pointed out that cases had been filed against AICTE
chairman Prof R A Yadav, who has been suspended on corruption
charges.

Earlier, the minister unveiled the bust of late D A Pandu
and delivered the endowment lecture at the D A Pandu Memorial
R V Dental College.
