"In the meeting both the regulators agreed to work mutually in areas of research and innovation, e-governance, translation of books in regional languages and examination reforms, among others," said UGC Chairman M Jagadesh Kumar, who is also the interim chairperson of AICTE.

Kumar at the meeting noted the need for unified functioning, undeviating regulatory framework and standardized processes. He emphasized that both the higher education regulators must work in a synchronized manner, learn from each other, share and adopt each other’s best practices and have a coordinated approach towards different aspects of higher education.

"Post detailed deliberations, it emerged that both UGC and AICTE must share a symbiotic relationship and mutually work on matters such as faculty development programme, students and faculty induction programme, skill development, internships, internationalisation, pursuing two degrees simultaneously in physical, online, hybrid mode and Indian Knowledge System and universal human values, among others," Kumar said.
