Guidelines on Public Self-Disclosure by Higher Education Institutions

National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 emphasizes transparent self-disclosure by Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). Public self-disclosure by HEIs, in fact, is one of the fundamental principles of the policy. NEP contemplates that HEIs shall be responsible and accountable to the stakeholders through transparent self-disclosure of all relevant records

  • The availability of information in the public domain is an important source of accountability
  • Stakeholders in the higher education system such as students, parents, research scholars, prospective students, regulatory bodies, accreditation agencies, alumni, and the public desire to seek information from the websites of HEIs.
  • Every Higher Education Institution shall maintain a functional website for making relevant self-disclosure to the stakeholders. The disclosure made on the website shall have unrestricted access without any requirement of log-in/registration and shall have a ‘Search’ facility for easy access.
  • Higher Education Institutions may provide information related to the following on their websites and provide the links, wherever possible:
