The Kerala cabinet on Wednesday decided to provide autonomous status to government and aided Arts and Science Colleges and Engineering colleges in accordance with UGC guidelines. The decision was in line with the announcement in the state budget for the year 2013-14 that government would encourage arts, science and engineering colleges to get autonomous status.

This was part of Kerala’s objective to improve the quality of higher education. A sum of Rs 15 crore had been earmarked in the budget to improve the basic physical infrastructure in Government Colleges and also for setting up of modern management systems to achieve autonomous status.

Chandy said UGC’s target was to provide autonomous status to 10 per cent of educational institutions in the country in near future. Following UGC’s decision, 420 educational institutions under 79 Universities in 19 states had already obtained this status, he said. But, so far Kerala did not have a single autonomous educational institution, he said.
