The University Grants Commission (UGC) has proposed to supervise all public universities, except four, under a uniform law. 

The university apex body made 24 recommendations, including a policy to start the uniform admission tests at private universities to reduce suffering of students.

The commission submitted its 46th annual report to President Abdul Hamid on Sunday. 

UGC Chairman Prof Kazi Shahidullah said: “The president gave us some instructions while submitting the report, but we have already included such directions. However, the UGC will take effective steps based on his various recommendations.”
