HYDERABAD: The 78th Academic Council meeting of University of Hyderabad (UoH) on Monday, discussed the UGC regulations for admission to PhD programme. While it adopted the regulations as directed, it also recommended that further clarity can be sought from the UGC on a few issues.
According to a press release, the meeting noted that the university was taking steps to update curricula and to make the choice based credit system (CBCS) more effective, classes would be rescheduled from 8 am to 7 pm so as to help  students to take more courses across the disciplines.
On the whole, 28 agenda items were taken up for discussion.

The release said: “The house decided to retain the application fees of last year while suggesting that viability of conducting a test in a particular centre would depend on the registrants. Based on a preferential model the candidates would be given option to write at a nearby centre.
It also announced professional counsellor help and provision of 108 ambulance at south campus. The house recommended a systemic approach to addressing students’ grievances.
The student union, according to varsity’s press release, suggested that the university could rationalise its internal revenue and take measures in cost cutting.
“The University has recently recruited 47 new faculty in eleven schools. We have decided to increase 69 seats in PhD courses from the coming academic year. So there is no reason for the university to reduce seats. In future too the university will complete the formality of recruiting more teachers which will ensure that more seats are added in the courses,” said the release.
