The draft bill setting out the constitution, functions and powers of the National Commission for Higher Education and Research has proposed a body in which will be concentrated the powers to oversee higher education in all fields, and which will be overburdened with bureaucratic responsibilities. The NCHER is also likely to end any measure of autonomy with the state universities. The new commission, which is expected to replace the University Grants Commission, will possibly end up with exactly the same problems as the UGC.
