Apart from these four universities, UGC made a uniform law to run 42 other universities, says the report.
Meanwhile, the UGC also proposed uniform admission tests in private universities under a cluster system admission test to reduce hassle in the current academic year.
In addition, the commission made recommendations to ensure equal access to education for men and women and ensure financial transparency.
The recommendations include increasing the capacity of the UGC, increasing the number of scholarships and fellowships at home and abroad for higher degrees to enhance the knowledge of teachers, researchers, and students through joint research, and exchange of experiences with leading universities.
