The University Grants Commission (UGC) has publicly listed 421 universities, including prominent ones like Jadavpur University and Anna University, for failing to appoint Ombudspersons as required for student grievance redressal. These universities have violated UGC regulations, and the UGC has urged them to quickly comply and complete the appointment process. The Ombudspersons and committees are essential for resolving a range of student issues, including admissions, fees, exams, scholarships, and harassment. Despite repeated reminders, the institutions have not adhered to the stipulated regulations, prompting the UGC to make the names public on its website. The UGC encourages transparency by asking universities to display Ombudspersons' details for easy access to grievance resolution information.
