The Expert Committee, constituted regarding implementation of the National Curriculum and Credit Framework (NCCF), vide UGC D.O. No. 1-1/2021 (QIP) (CBCS) dated 31.01.2023, has recommended the implementation of NCCF for 4-years UG programmes from the academic year 2023-2024 in all Government/ aided Higher Educational Institutions (HEIS) in the State through optimum utilization of existing resources or self-mobilization of additional resources, pending receipt of additional financial assistance.
