With a host of higher education reform bills awaiting Parliaments nod, the HRD ministry has decided to implement part of its reform agenda through executive order from the next academic session.
HRD minister Kapil Sibal on 16th Monday said “a grievance redressal mechanism for students and applicants for admission in higher educational institutions is being put in place. It would be implemented in all central universities, IITs, IIMs, NITS, IIITs, private and government-run deemed universities and all higher educational institutions under various Central government ministries”. Regulatory bodies like University Grants Commission, All India Council for Technical Education and National Council for Teacher Education would ask educational institutions to set up grievance redressal mechanism. Although the order would not be binding on the institution, the regulator would rely on the frequency of non-observance to decide on continued recognition to these institutions. As part of the initiative, every institution would be required to appoint an ombudsman who would be a person with judicial or legal experience. In case the grievance relates to SCs/STs/OBCs or minorities, the ombudsman can co-opt a person of eminence from the weaker section to assist him in taking a decision. Applicants for admission and students can apply to the ombudsman for redressal of grievances and she/he would have to give the order within a month. Sibal said students have several grievances at the time of applying for admission that needs immediate redressal.
