For a long time, there was a demand for students and institutions that they should be allowed to do two degrees or diploma courses with a degree or two regular courses. The UGC constituted an expert panel, which gave its recommendations. After this, the UGC finally agreed to it. According to the new decision, now any person can take a regular degree course with a second-degree course in distance learning or open learning medium or personal medium from the same or another institution. Similarly, with a regular course, any student can do certificate, diploma, and PG diploma from the same institution or other institution through regular, distance-learning, or open learning. No two regular degree courses simultaneously: Two regular degree or two regular diploma courses cannot be done simultaneously. Not only this, but UGC has also approved the provision of joint degrees under this decision. Under this, now any student can take a joint degree from more than one institute. For this, he will be allowed to study in more than one institution. The use of joint degrees can prove to be better for education. This system is already implemented in foreign universities. In many universities here, students of one faculty are also not allowed to take other faculty courses. So this exercise is not very easy. Universities will have to change their act and the Act. The committee has stated in its report that a student registered in a regular degree program may be allowed to enroll in an additional degree course from the same university or other institutions. However, this program must be in open university or distance mode. Because here, there can be administrative and educational problems in giving two-degree courses from the university simultaneously.
