Waking up from the deep slumber, finally University Grant Commission has ordered all state-run universities across the nation to give degrees to their students within 180 days of completion of the course. If a university fails to comply the order, there is a punitive action of withdrawing the grant or the status of the university.


The order is not new
UGC Regulation 2008  states students have to be awarded their degrees within 180 days from the day they qualify. But state run universities have failed or say have been ignoring this regulation. As per The New Indian Express report universities like Bangalore University (BU) takes over six months, whereas Kuvempu University takes up to eight months. Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) is even worse: it often takes a year.

That is why UGC has to issue a circular to all the state run universities stating that  180 days is sufficient time for a varsity to complete a task that is among the most fundamental and primary duties of an university that is to award degrees.


What it means for the student
UGC has been getting a lot of complaints against universities stating that the universities are not providing degrees on time resulting into students missing opportunities and not having degrees on time also constrains them from applying to many opportunites.


The Logical Indian appreciates the decision taken by UGC and hopes that the universities follow the order. Even after completion of the study, students have to face a lot and are made to run to get their degrees. Hopefully, this stops now.
