According to the teachers body, the tripartite memorandum of understanding (MOU) demanded universities to continuously increase their internal (self-generated) financial resources through fee hike, revenue earning from commercial courses, engagement in other commercial activities and manage a bigger portion of their research activities through extraneous funding.
