UGC issues guidelines for varsities to share resources

All universities must share resources with each other to bring about qualitative improvements in R&D activities, the higher education regulator has said while releasing guidelines to that effect.

The Union government has been supporting central universities as well as other higher education institutions in setting up infrastructure and allocating resources to improve the quality of research, the University Grants Commission said in a letter last week.

“Since continuous funding is required for the upkeep and maintenance of the infrastructural facilities, it has been felt that the HEIs should adopt measures to share their infrastructure with other HEIs for optimum use of the available resources by charging a nominal amount,” it said.

This additional revenue will not only make resources available to institutions in need but also help host universities to manage their resources in a better manner, the commission said. “For this, HEIs may allow their resources, like libraries, laboratories, equipment, etc., to be shared/used during free time by students and researchers of other HEIs,” the regulator said.
