◦The main object of the Central Government of India to legislate this bill is to prohibit unfair practices in the educational institutions and to protect the interests of the students admitted / to be admitted or seeking admissions such as charging of heavy capitation fee, demand of huge donations for admitting the students, not to issue proper receipts in respect of the payments made by students, admissions to professional courses of study through nontransparent and questionable admission process, false claim of quality of services given through misleading advertisements in different media, forcible withholding of original certificates and other necessary documents of the admitted students.

After enactment of this legislation it will be mandatory for the institutions to publish their prospectus, its content as well as the price. They have to declare the number of seats for each course or program, eligibility criteria for a course of study, process of selection. Any miscommunication of fact about the physical / academic infrastructure of the institute will be considered as illegal and the concerned institution will be liable for penalty upto Rs.50 lacs only.

In order to protect the interest of students and applicants seeking admission to Engineering, Medical institutions and Universities, the Ministry of HRD, Government of India, has prepared a legislative proposal titled as “The Prohibition of Unfair Practices in Technical and Medical Education Institutions and Universities Bill 2009”. The proposed Bill prohibits institutions from accepting fees or charges without issuing receipts and mandates them not to admit any student without conducting admission tests. These institutions will be prohibited from refusing to return or withholding documents of a student if he or she decides not to take admission. The Bill also seeks to curb other malpractices like over-pricing of prospectus, barring advertisements by institutions, mandating them to maintain records, including answer sheets and other relevant material, for every candidate appearing for entrance tests.
Charging of capitation fee by any institution would amount to a cognizable offence, allowing the police to arrest the erring administrators without a warrant, and the guilty would face imprisonment or fine under the proposed legislation approved by the cabinet. Prohibition of Unfair Practices Bill provides for upto three years of jail term to the guilty administrator of the institute for charging of capitation fee. Charging of any fee other than those disclosed in the prospectus of the institute will be considered as a cognizable offence. The offence can attract a fine upto Rs 50 lakh also.
The bill seeks to classify malpractices in two categories. Charging capitation fee by the institutions will be cognizable offence, while other offences will be considered as non-cognizable and will attract fine. The civil offences will be adjudicated in the educational tribunals, while the cognizable offences will be adjudicated by the courts. Certain institutes promise good quality education but do not deliver it. They give misleading advertisements in media with intent to cheat students. They will face penalty under this new regulation.
At present, the fee structure in private engineering and medical colleges is fixed by a state level committee headed by a retired High Court Judge. However, many institutes charging fee higher than that. Certain institutes demand donations for admitting students and do not issue proper receipts for payments made by students. They also don’t give back certificates and other documents of students who want to quit the institute.

What happened to The Foreign Education Institutions Bill, which was to regulate the entry and operation of foreign educational institutions imparting or intending to impart higher education in India? This bill was cleared by the Union Cabinet last year?

The Union Cabinet has already cleared National Accreditation Regulatory Authority Bill, 2010.
The National Accreditation Regulatory Authority Bill, 2010, seeks to set up a body to assess and accredit every institution in higher education. "The authority will set norms for accreditation. The process of accreditation will be outsourced to agencies of integrity registered with the authority.
At present the accreditation of institutions is voluntary. But with new authority in place, every institute will go through mandatory accreditation. Disputes pertaining to accreditation, affiliation and inter-institution matters will be adjudicated by the National Educational tribunal. The tribunal at the national level will comprise nine members.
The tribunals will act as forums for fast-track and speedy resolution of issues in institutions. The state tribunals will adjudicate matters concerning teachers, employees and students of institutions in the respective states. The national tribunal would deal with all matters concerning regulatory bodies in higher education and also matters involving institutes located in two or more states. It would act as an appellate body against the orders of the state educational tribunals.
The present accreditation agencies like National Accreditation and Assessment council and National Board of Accreditation will function under the National Accreditation Regulatory Authority. Every institute will make self-disclosure about it which can be audited by the accreditation authority which will be an independent statutory body for quality control of education. The authority would also monitor and audit the accreditation agencies registered under the Authority.

After several years of debate, the Union Cabinet in March 2010 unanimously approved a Bill The Foreign Educational Institutions (Regulation of Entry And Operations) Bill, 2010 to regulate entry and operation of foreign educational institutions imparting or intending to impart higher education including technical education and medical education and award of degree, diploma and equivalent qualifications by such institutions. According to our present legal system no foreign university can offer degree in Indian soil. The bill that seeks to put in place a mechanism to facilitate the entry and regulation of foreign educational institutions and protect, inter-alia, public order, decency and morality, has been referred to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Human Resource Development. Foreign education bill was passed more than a decade (1995) ago in the Rajya Sabha but it was shelved. Precisely if foreign education bill is passed, India will allow educational Institutes from other countries to set up campuses. Around 50 to 60 Institutions from USA and other developed countries have set their eyes to establish institutes in India and offer different courses.
The quality of our education system is deterring. The entry of foreign institutes will make things better as these Institutes will set bench marks and students will not fly to west for higher education.
Yearly around $4 billion is being spent on fees by Indian students for studying abroad. This situation can be changed by passing this bill and moreover the students who go abroad for higher education and get work permits there for 2 to 3 years and finally find full time jobs and get settle in those countries.
