UGC Chairman M. Jagadesh Kumar said it would offer more room to students who wish to pursue other courses.
UGC Chairman said students can opt for this scheme of simultaneous degree programs either from the same university or a different institute
The big announcement could potentially change the higher education landscape in the country.
Such changes being introduced by UGC are expected to be in line with National Education Policy 2020.
