“It is observed that there is a general lack of awareness among school and college students about what is corruption, its adverse impact on society, how and whom to make a complaint regarding such practices” said UGC secretary Jaspal S Sandhu in a letter to VCs of Central Universities.
“Students are interested in knowing more about ethics, how to fight corruption and related issues. Expanding their knowledge base on these issues will encourage them to be dedicated to the task of tackling corruption and also facilitate in character building” he added.
So, UGC considered and has advised Colleges and Universities to add following topics to their curriculum for the development of students and the country.
Details of the organisations such as:
- Central Vigilance Commission
- Central Bureau of Investigation
- How and whom to make complaints regarding corrupt practices
“In view of the above, UGC would like to advise all the universities and colleges to add the topic in their curriculum,” the UGC secretary’s letter to Universities said.
