According to recent news, University Grants Commission in collaboration with the Ministry of Vocational and Technical Training is to set up a University of Vocational Technology.
The public university system is in crisis. Funding is in adequate and/or is mismanaged. Students are protesting about lack of facilities. The Technical and Vocations Education system is in no better shape. Yet the government authorities in charge of these failing systems are proposing to set up more institutions.
When this bill comes into parliament the opposition better be ready to ask some hard questions.

1. What is the completion rate and average time to complete for each of the diploma or degree programs offered by the institutions under the jurisdiction of these authorities?
