In an attempt to bring about effective regulation in the educational paraphernalia of the nation, especially offered through distance mode, Government has decided to make the Distance Education Council (DEC) an independent statutory body.
Though DEC is currently governed by UGC, but still despite strict norms and rules many private universities defy the rules in offering distance mode course. In response to such regulatory issues, the government had sought beneficiary suggestions from public and other stakeholders for drafting the Distance Council of India Bill.
The present vision of giving regulatory authority to DEC has been recommended by the Madhava Menon Committee. The recommendations include formulating an independent and effective regulation on distance education. Further emphasis has also been laid on the quality and standard of the education including technical education through open distance learning.
Currently more than 40 lakh candidates are pursuing courses under distance mode education.
