Amend Rules Regarding Teachers’ Workload

The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has directed the University Grants Commission (UGC) to amend its new regulation regarding the workload of teachers.

Earlier, the UGC had issued a notification to increase teachers’ lecture-taking hours from 16 to 24 per week.

However, this will now not come into effect as a consequence of the direction from the MHRD.
