Higher education regulatory body University Grants Commission (UGC) will allow 900 autonomous colleges in the country to offer online degree courses to students from July this year, said a report. At present, only universities are allowed to offer online degree courses.

The move is part of the government’s efforts to ramp up the gross enrolment ratio to 50 percent by 2035, as proposed in the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.
