Arunachal to set up varsity regulatory commission

The state government has approved in principle setting up of the Arunachal Pradesh University Regulatory Commission (APURC) to regulate activities of all private universities.



Itanagar: The state government has approved in principle setting up of the Arunachal Pradesh University Regulatory Commission (APURC) to regulate activities of all private universities.

"Respecting the concern expressed by various corners about private universities and their quality of education, the state government has decided to set up the Commission to leave no scope for the universities to turn into commercial ventures in contradiction to the basic objectives of education," Education Minister Tapang Taloh said here today.

In the absence of an effective monitoring mechanism to check the mushrooming of private universities, a high level meeting, under the chairmanship of chief secretary on February 5 last, had a threadbare discussion for framing necessary rules and regulations for their effective functioning, the minister said.

While North East Frontier Technical University (NEFTU) is scheduled to start functioning at Aalo in West Siang district in May next, the Assembly approved the amended form of the Global University Bill on March 11 last.
