Recently, Javadekar announced that higher autonomy would be given to educational institutions which perform well and these institutes will have lesser regulations. On the other hand, if the performance of these institutes is not satisfactory they will have more regulations and lesser autonomy. The main intention of the government is to improve the quality of education and achieve better international rankings. He further said that National Ranking Framework (NIRF) is also important apart from NAAC for assessing institutes or universities.
