degree?except as provided under Section 22(1)referred to above As per the UGC Actthereforethere is no possibility of any degree granted by the branch campus of a foreign university established under Section 25 of the Companies Act The escape route could be the interpretation that the foreign degree will not be recognised in India It is only through the equivalence granted by the Association of Indian Universities that holders of foreign degrees conferred by foreign universities can pursue higher degrees or apply for jobs in India on par with Indian-degree holders Howeverthis is also implausibleas no authority can confer a degree except a universityas covered under Section 22(1) Thusthe only way the branch campus of a foreign university could confer a degree would be through the legislative routeeither via an independent act or a modification in the UGC Act It should also be noted that the new Companies Act does not enlarge the scope of Section 25 by allowing the entry of foreign universities Henceany reference to this act facilitating the entry of foreign universities is a misrepresentation The new act does provide scope for corporate social responsibility by promoting educationwhich is a separate issue It is common knowledge thatin the pastprivate universities have followed the legislative route under state legislation because of Section 22(1) Why could private universities not be established under Section 25 of the Companies Act The reason is that even if such a university is established under Section 25the UGC Act will prohibit it from conferring a degree unless authorised by Parliament Thats whya foreign universitys branch campus cannot confer a degree unless authorised by Parliament Under the UGC Actit ishoweverpossible for a deemed universityestablished under Section 25to confer a degree Thereforethe only way the branch campus of a foreign university could confer a degree would be by declaring it a deemed university Earlier discussions on the entry of foreign universities had considered the deemed university routewhich was later given up It seems thatas a matter of policythe HRD ministry is opposed to the idea of promoting deemed universities Given thisit is unlikely that a branch campus of a foreign university can be established in India with degree-granting powersunless an amendment to the UGC Act is proposed What about the moral issues How just is it to devise a method to ensure the entry of foreign universities when Parliament has not passed the pending bill to that effect Is this not an important question to be considered by Parliament Consider the reports of the Yashpal committee and the National Knowledge Commission (NKC) on the entry of foreign universities in India The Yashpal committee was sceptical of the idea of the foreign university and favours universities among the top 200 in the world only on the condition that they must have the features of a university as suggested in the reportconfer an Indian degreeand be subject to the same rules as any Indian university The NKC also favours the entry of foreign universities to promote competition after ensuring a level playing field for foreign and domestic institutions The level playing field argument implies that the government should raise standards of Indian universities to compete in the global ranking

the top teams in the world but Dheeraj is prepared for the challenge (Source: AIFF) Top News India’s first-choice goalkeeper Dheeraj Singh on Tuesday expressed confidence that the hard work he has put in and the sacrifices he made will be rewarded in the form of impressive performances in the FIFA U-17 World Cup The marquee tournament starts October 6 and the Manipuri boy is excited to be a part of India’s first-ever World Cup team “All my days of sacrifice and hard work will be rewarded and I am very much excited to be a part of the first Indian team to feature in a FIFA World Cup” Dheeraj said three days before the start of the tournament Dheeraj who hails from Moirang in Bishnupur district said he prefers to strike a balance between aggressive goalkeeping and composed goalkeeping “You have to pick your moments and chose what type of goalkeeping will suit the moment Sometimes the aggressive goalkeeping can lead to difficulties and even conceding a goal whereas composed goalkeeping could work and vice versa For a goalkeeper both ways of goalkeeping are important” Asked how tough is a goalkeeper’s job he said “Staying in the moment is the job of a goalkeeper and a slight lack of focus or concentration can easily lead to a goal “Goalkeepers are the last barriers and it makes the job all the more tough when there is a pressure of performing in every single game associated with it” India will be up against some of the top teams in the world but Dheeraj is prepared for the challenge “It is a challenge that I am prepared for We respect our opponents but as a goalkeeper it is my job to be the hardest barrier the opponents face and I will try to be the hardest barrier that they will ever face in scoring a goal” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More
