Union education minister Dharmendra Pradhan has asked the Higher Education Commission of India (HECI) to ensure employability and job creation for Indian students while inculcating a global outlook in them towards their career.

Pradhan chaired a meeting of the HECI on May 9. It was proposed in the meeting that HECI may function as an overarching umbrella for guidance of all the higher education institutions of the country.

As per the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, a single regulatory body will be guiding higher education in India. The regulatory body will have four verticals to deal with different functions of higher education.
