265

National Institution for Transforming India or NITI Aayog, a government think tank established by PM Narendra Modi, which is at present working on restricting MCI (Medical Council of India), has also been entrusted with the task of preparing a similar move for UGC (University Grants Commission) and All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). Now that a committee headed by the vice chairman of NITI Aayog, Arvind Panagariya, is working on restructuring of MCI in view of the poor regulation of medical education by the body, PMO has directed the institute to also work on restructuring UGC and AICTE as well a board looking after homeopathy and ayurvedic education in the country.
