The National Educational Policy, 1986, recommended that state level planning and coordination of Higher Education shall be done through councils of Higher Education and that the University Grants Commission (UGC) and these Councils will develop coordinative methods to keep a watch on standards. The UGC constituted a committee to make recommendations regarding setting up of State Councils of Higher Education as per theaforesaid National Policy. The said committee recommended that there is a pressing need for effective machinery for promotion and co-ordination of Higher Education at the state level and co-ordination of state level programs with those of the UGC. The UGC has laid down the guidelines for setting up State Councils of Higher Education as recommended by the said committee. The State Government has accordingly decided to fill the gap by constituting a State Council of Higher Education as recommended in the National Educational Policy of the Government of India and as recommended by the committee constituted by the UGC
