Academic Bank of Credits
Itanagar: Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU Academic Bank of Credits), the only central university in Arunachal Pradesh, is all set to implement the University Grants Commission (UGC) Academic Bank Credit scheme. RGU Vice-Chancellor Prof Saket Kushwaha, in a virtual meeting with UGC Chairperson Prof Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar, said the university would constitute a task force on this, headed by a senior officer of the university with members selected from among officers and faculty members who have experience with the solution of admission, registration and examination matters, the Vice Chancellor said that this scheme will be a big game changer in the transformation of Indian education.
The initiative has the potential to internationalize the Indian higher education system, as the regulation offers great promises, such as freedom and flexibility in the system of awarding university degrees, standardization within the Indian higher education system, and strong integration of the Indian higher education system, the Vice-Chancellor said.
This scheme is a digital repository that contains information about the credits earned by individual students during their study journey in higher education academic programs. The UGC expects the positive impact that the practice of this will bring in the coming years.
Higher education institutions participating in the program would greatly benefit from the smooth management of credits.
RGU exam controller Dr. Bijay Raji said the academic bank will be responsible for opening, closing, and verifying the academic accounts of students.
