New Delhi June24 (ANI): Union Human resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal said here today that the recommendations given by the Prof Yashpal committee on Renovation and Rejuvenation of Higher education will be implemented in the first 100 days of the UPA Government.

The committee was constituted in February 2008 to study the functioning of different agencies in higher education and to suggest measures to restructure the system .The committee had submitted its interim report in March this year.
The committee had observed that there is too much inspection, interference and delay in the dealings of universities with the state and central governments, and recommended for an efficient funding management of the higher education.
Prof Yashpal had suggested converting all IITs and IIMs as Universities. The committee felt that the universities should become self-regulating partners in managing the overall education system as continuous monitoring and inspection caused delays and led to corruption. (ANI)
