The college also asked the Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry if there was a provision under the Delhi University Act to grant autonomous status.

According to University Grants Commission (UGC) Guidelines for autonomous Colleges- 2017, a college with such status can determine and prescribe its own courses,have its own syllabus. It can make its own admission rules, conduct examinations, issue mark sheets and other certificates, etc.

Regarding the confusion related to the fund cut Secretary of HRD ministry, R Subrahmanyam said: “There will be no reduction in the government grants on account of autonomy. The autonomy is to promote academic excellence and has no relation to financial elements. The purpose is to promote more academic freedom so that these institutions can devise courses that are more aligned to the societal and market requirements as reported by the Hindustan Times.

‚ÄåMany colleges are approaching the government with their queries regarding autonomy. UGC is planning to conduct a meeting with the college principals across the country to provide a clarity on the issue.
‚Äå
Colleges applying for the autonomy will have to go through an inspection carried out by an expert team after which they will be granted the status,as told to HT.

St. Stephens College also applied for an autonomous status last year but its application has not been cleared by the University as yet.
