DT Shirke, in charge vice chancellor of Mumbai University, said, “MU will act as per the committee recommendation.”

As per sources, universities across the state will start a four-year degree programme in autonomous colleges. Currently, 147 colleges are autonomous in the state.

“Two guides are required to form a research centre in a college. The committee has suggested that a person from the industry with experience and stature can be considered to promote research between academia and industry,” he added.

A source shared, “The steering committee, headed by former vice-chancellor of Savitribai Phule Pune University Nitin Karmalkar, was formed by the state government in December 2022 to suggest recommendations for implementation of NEP in the state.”

The calculation of credits for each semester and the creation of a single window online platform for the display of all the approved online courses offered by universities, autonomous colleges and other agencies are among the other suggestions. All recommendations once approved will be finalised for implementation in institutes in the state.
