Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel, who is also the chancellor of state universities, has directed vice chancellors to ensure that students are not made to run for their degrees.

In an online review meeting of two state universities, Lucknow University and Bhatkhande Music Institute Deemed University, the Governor said that the universities should send the degrees to students' homes by post.

The Governor said universities, along with colleges, should hand over the degrees to the students soon after convocation in a timely manner.

She had earlier suggested preparing a database of names, phone numbers and addresses of the students for sending degrees by post.

The Governor also directed the two Vice Chancellors to state criterion and detailed instructions in the advertisement for hiring faculty members. This, she stated, will ensure transparency in the appointment process.

The Governor also suggested that the universities should hold webinars and training sessions to apprise the newly elected village pradhans of the public welfare schemes.

"Most of the women gram pradhans belong to self-help groups. Universities should make them aware of the malpractices in society like dowry, discrimination of male and female child, so that they can motivate women in their villages to fight against such social evils," the Governor said.

Nearly 33 per cent of the newly elected village heads are women.

The Governor further asked the universities to arrange a visit to Nari Niketan hospitals for girls so that they can get a learning experience. She further directed universities to adopt children who have been orphaned after losing their parents to Covid.
